October 19, 1951: Christmas Tree Prototype


I've been trying to skip over a few strips here and there, since if I keep posting every Peanuts strip we'll never be done, but it's hard when things like this keep cropping up. It's one of the rare Shermy strips with no sign of Charlie Brown, it's the first mention of Christmas in Peanuts, the characters are outside of their usual attire, and most of all, we have a Christmas tree that seems like a prototype (without decorations and considerably more needles) of the one from the famous Christmas special.

It's enough to make you want to gorge yourself on Dolly Madison cakes, isn't it?

  1. Wow... talk about a blast from the past.

    It's been a couple hundred years since I've even seen a Dolly Madison cake.
