This is the first time we've seen Charlie Brown in bed, and also the first time we see him fretting while laying there. Poor kid.
We're establishing Charlie Brown's classic personality here. Most of the time up to now he was, Schulz's own word, kind of a smart-aleck. Here we see him as the sensitive, put-upon type which is more in line with how we remember him.
