Lucy in the second panel looks rather hideous with her big, circular eyes. The other strips show her from the side where she looks a lot more normal.
None of the kids really have all that good a hiding place. (Schroeder in the waste basket is funny.)
Here, "Rats!" is cemented as the Peanuts world's all-purpose curse word. Like most of these mild oaths it seems king of quaint now, which is something of a shame because there's a lot more variety to these milder versions than the strong examples turned to the most now. (Of course these are kids we're talking about, and not the ones from South Park.)
Lucy's system of counting is strange and non-deterministic. Still, if you're going up to eight million, it's probably better to do it that way.
