January 23, 1952: Schroeder’s first multiword utterance is in German


Schroeder gets way into his playing in this one. His holding out his arms in the last panel is hilarious.

Also, I laughed out loud when I noticed how Schulz signed this one.


  1. In a world where graphical depictions of musical notation are so often nonsensical, it is worth noting that the excerpt in panel 1 is in fact the opening of Beethoven's Große Sonate für das Hammerklavier.

  2. That is awesome! Thanks, dfan!

    Schulz said in the Peanuts Golden Anniversary book (the one that had been in the works when he died) that he thought some readers enjoyed figuring out which musical work was represented in these strips. Well, I enjoy hearing about them.
