There are certain personality characteristics that Peanuts characters exhibit. Here is exhibited one that we might call "mischevious." Snoopy has it definitely, and Lucy might have some of it. Charlie Brown used to have to, as we see here, but kind of grows out of it.
Yet another reason to love Peanuts: you have just read a strip about the pronunciation of a German particle. That's not something you'll typically find in Dennis the Menace.
In panel 2, Charlie Brown is sitting on the far end of Schroeder's toy piano. That thing must be really heavy to avoid being upended.
