February 7, 1953: Lucy's Fussiness


At this point we've heard Lucy described as a "fussbudget" once, but the only times she's really been fussy are with Charlie Brown, and even then not much.

In the second panel it's unclear that Charlie Brown is actually holding two glasses. The shading makes it look strangely like he has arm hair.


  1. I actually like finding those little drawing oddities like that "arm-hair shading" in panel 2. It gives me a sense of Schulz trying something new and deciding it's something he should never, ever do again.

    As often as that happens to me, it's a comfort to think Schulz had moments like that too.

  2. Enjoy it, Charlie Brown. Enjoy your victories against Lucy. She'll remember. She'll remember.
