July 25, 1953: Fussing with Lucy


We've already seen strips in which Lucy fusses over something to Charlie Brown, who blandly walks away, sometimes after dumping something on Lucy's head. This won't be the last one, either. Charlie Brown seems to lose this ability as Lucy becomes a more formidable opponent. These are "turnabout" strips, even though they don't involve a chase.

This strip also brings in another developing concept, Lucy's propensity to go wildly overboard in describing something, first seen back when exulting in her Checkers winning streak.
