November 14, 1951: Look familiar?


Well take a look at that! It's basically the familiar pulling-away-the-football gag! Sure, it's Violet and not thunderclap Lucy who's doing it, and the football is dropped instead of yanked away, and the motive is fear rather than sheer, unbridled malice, and Charlie Brown doesn't say "AUUUUGGGHHHH!!!", and it's rendered a little less stylistically than the later annual strips.

But still, there it is.
