january 16, 1952: But he CAN read music?!


The wavy line around Schroeder’s head is an interesting idea for showing embarrassment. Imagine what the frame would look like without it. The joke seems like it would be just a little flatter with just his blush, hands and expression illustrating his reaction.


  1. It's amazing how many early strips Patty is in. She is really the 2nd major character after Charlie Brown at this point. And to think that she was so unceremoiously dropped later on.

  2. I meant "unceremoniously" woops.

  3. Whoops, someone pointed out that I haven't IDed the music in this comic. It's the opening of the C major Prelude from Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier.
