Christmas Day, 1951: Singing In Type


Sure it's mostly sentimental instead of funny, but imagine how long it must have taken Charles Schulz to render the typeface in the fourth panel.

Note: Snoopy runs with Shermy in the first panel. The mystery of his ownership continues!


  1. C'mon that third panel with Charlie Brown pulling Schroeder in a sleigh with his toy piano is surely worth a mention.

    P.S. I'm enjoying the project.

  2. Was this the first instance of the fancy typeface that would become something of a Peanuts holiday tradition?

  3. Perhaps, except that it's only the second holiday. And I don't think the typeface thing lasts that long.
