November 4, 1953: He went that way

See this strip on!

Snoopy's versatile ears again prove their agility. Also, I like to speculate as to why Patty and Charlie Brown are so happy here. I assume they're playing Hide & Seek.


So, we're going to try just uploading the strips and hoping for the best, which at least seems to be the usual case out in webland. I'm not sure what I'm going to do when the archive images break, as this seems to be something beyond the power of a simple Python hack to fix.

Hey Universal! If you're seeing this, know that I'm not trying to exploit the strip. We love Peanuts! We're presenting them here as an aid to discussion. We don't link to every strip, just the most interesting ones. He're hoping you won't mind.


  1. they won't mind, as long as you aren't trying to make money with the strip.

  2. When I click on the strip image, I zoom into it nicely. Not sure how much you want to program, but you could write some code to show an enlarged image on a mouseover.

    Anyway, this is yet another strip that shows how Snoopy isn't necessarily CB's "best friend"...

  3. I'm just amazed how often Patty is used in the early days. And then so unceremoniously dropped seems cruel!! Also, John, thanks for your perseverance of presenting these as you do. I look forward to them every day.

  4. I've started to like Patty and Violet. They're kinda cute. I think they should be brought back if even just for a little cameo on the new specials they are making.

    1. How about using them as major characters with Shermy somehow even though they aren't important at all and where was Shermy anyway in The Peanuts Movie, with Rerun in cameo status!
