June 16, 1952: A reasonable request


There is a whimsicalness to early Peanuts that I find appealing. It's not just that Lucy washed her hands in Charlie Brown's glass of milk, it's that she asked nicely first like this is standard Lucy protocol.

Turnabout strip!


  1. Looks to me like Lucy's eyes are starting to evolve. In panel 2, they are more like @ signs than the freakish fully enclosed circles they have been so far....

  2. Yep, this is one of the last strips with circle-eyed Lucy. I think I've linked to every one of them actually.

    Something I missed in my first examination is how Charlie Brown is levitating in surprise in panel 3!
