Sunday, November 30, 1952: Lucy and Schroeder, before the strife


Lucy and Schroeder are two characters who have yet to interact much. I think this may be the first time they have spoken to each other. The next year is the one in which Lucy develops her crush on the beleaguered musician.

Snoopy's ears demonstrate amazing utility throughout the strip. He appears to be able to manipulate them through muscular action, which must mean he has some freak mutation that allows him to do this.


  1. I hate Schroeder (not as a character, but personality-wise). He was always being extremely horrible to Lucy for no reason at all, regardless of how nice she was to him. I mean, she didn't even react when Schroeder yanked the piano from underneath her head! Linus should've bopped him one for his sister.

  2. This is probably also a rare strip featuring Lucy and Schroeder, but without the piano or Beethoven references.

  3. Schulz would later joke that Snoopy used his ears to clamp himself onto the top of his doghouse when he's sleeping.
