January 28, 1953: Ah, here we go


This is upping the ante a bit in terms of the violence level of the strip.


  1. The best is yet to come in a strip drawn just over two months after this one, where Charlie Brown receives a hard punch on the top of his head from Violet for calling her 'Ol' Tattle Tale Gray' after she'd been arguing with Patty.

  2. Charlie Brown's comments here are interesting to consider in light of the many future strips that show him struggling to use a fountain pen without smudging the ink.

  3. I like the way that Violet's hitting him so hard that her feet are off the ground.
