May 3, 1952: Charlie Brown is highly suggestible


That is quite the lurid description Violet is giving there. It's like a horror story.


  1. Anybody know why Schulz kept switching Violet's hair back and forth from pigtails to ponytail at this point?

  2. My guess is that it differentiates her a bit more from Lucy. The pony-tail gives her a prominent visual characteristic no other character has, while the pig-tails are in conjunction with having her hair down in back, which resembles Lucy's 'do.

    We do know that eventually the pony-tail wins out, in modified form.
