April 30, 1951: Pennies went farther then

Patty wears a travelling coat in this one, a decidedly 50s-ish touch.

This is the start of a minor running gag, the Peanuts kids often get candy or comics from this particular drug store, and the manager gets annoyed when they don't buy things. (Just think: Peanuts started back in the days when drug stores were still a suitable kid hang-out spot, and ended in the days of the Internet!)

  1. Hi, I've been enjoying following along; great idea for a blog.

    I just wanted to say that I love your comment on this one; a great observation that really puts the longevity of the strip in perspective.

    Thanks for doing this!
