Only the second bit of negativity we've heard from Pig-Pen, the first being in his introduction.
That's not Snoopy, someone switched his bust of Beethoven for a figurine of the RCA dog!
Is this sarcasm from Schroeder, or condescension?
Charlie Brown still has some of the old ego in him, I see. I wonder when is the moment when that's finally pounded out of him, and when it happens, if ultimately it's Lucy, or Patty and Violet who are the cause
Her beleaguered mother has resorted to trying to play her and Linus against each other. Lucy takes the long view here. Lucy is forward-thinking in the next Sunday strip too, although she doesn't look quite so far ahead.
This is a fairly standard comic inversion. Not really terribly noteworthy, but I've commented on all the other strips this week, so why not?
(If I do leave strips out, I will still link to the gocomics page for the absent strips. I don't think it's proper to present strips I don't have much to say about, since I'm hosting these copies to avoid hot linking gocomics, and not to provide an alternate archive of strips. As I said before, they are presented here for commentary purposes only.)
