October 10, 1951: Humph!


Schulz had been heard to say that Beethoven was Schroeder's idol primarily because it was a funny word, but it cannot be denied that the idea of a young child fixating upon the notoriously stern composer adds a certain complexity to his character, which this and later strips take advantage of.


  1. I love the offended expression on Schroeder's face, especially in panel three. He can't talk yet, but he can be highly insulted!

  2. I like the look of bliss on his face in the last panel.
