April 3, 1952: How does Schroeder whistle chords?


This strip is really well-done from a storytelling standpoint. It sets up the premise, provides a comparison between CB's and Schroeder's abilities, shows Patty and Violet's opinion of those abilities, illustrates Schroeder's charisma and Charlie Brown's feelings of inadequacy, all in four panels.

Scribble of shame!


  1. That music is the opening of the piano piece Träumerei, by Schumann (not Beethoven!). I am always impressed by Schulz's care to draw his music accurately.

  2. Almost as impressed as I am that you can recognize it at a glance like that.
