March 24, 1952: Bring me my bear, servant!


The fifth sixth Lucy strip. Another instance of Lucy's demanding interactions with her unseen father. Apparently Schulz got the idea for these strips from his then-newbown daughter, Lisa. I hope he didn't get the idea for Lucy's later personality from her as well!


  1. I've heard that Lucy's personality was inspired by Schulz's unhappy relationship with his first wife. Ouch!

  2. Yeah, I read that in Schulz and Peanuts; a Biography. When Lucy grows into her later personality I'll have more to say on this interpretation....
