The Complete Peanuts, Vol. 4: 1957-1958
The Complete Peanuts, Vol. 4: 1957-1958 - Charles M. Schulz,Jonathan Franzen

After a long hiatus, I've resolved to start reading these again. Whenever I feel like I need a boost I'll go ahead and buy another volume. I mean, I'm never going to retire anyway so what's the point of having a savings account?


Edit: Also, sorry folks you have to click through to the blog to see the whole comic strip. 


These were good years for the strip, with Schulz continuing to refine his technique, there are long sequences here - notably Linus' pledge to go without his blanket for two weeks and Charlie Brown's epic baseball gaff - and thee are jokes with almost identical panels repeated many times. This repetition wasn't detrimental, it seemed more like Schulz working out a joke in his mind until it reached maximum absurdity. Violet's hi-fi parasol inevitably becomes Lucy's hi-fi jump rope.




Much of the humor appears timeless, but the Peanuts gang were children of the 1950s, young baby boomers as observed by the previous generation. Their are many gags that deal with no outmoded technology, branding, or early television, but those dealing with child psychology were some of my favorites. This was the beginning of parenting being serious business:





Snoopy's impressions took off in the last volume, but he adds many more to his repertoire in these years and in general is just delightful.



There were no additions to the cast, the last two comics have everyone in them (the very last even with names)  but Schulz has a lot on his hands figuring out the group dynamics, good and bad. Schroeder and Charlie Brown compete for who's better at despairing over contemporary pop culture:



It was truly difficult picking a Sunday for this review, but this one touches on a lot of things I love about the series. Poor Charlie Brown, he suffers all the pangs of childhood and rarely catches a break:



Maybe it gets better for him next year, but I doubt it!

Think before you speak haha

I don't have anywhere to share this story, so I am going to share it here.


My mom, who is 56 years old and not good with technology at all is quite proud of herself that she can play Roblox by herself with my 10-year-old niece, S. Mom, S, and her parents (my sister & her husband) and my other 3-year-old niece were at the park.


S was rocking on a horse that was too small for her. Another girl of about 9 or 10 came up to S and said, "aren't you too big for that?" She wasn't being mean, but more bossy, like "I know everything." The girl said, "try that one, it is bigger."


So S went to the other toy (which had two seats) and the girl said, "Isn't that so great, now you and she can do it together," indicating the 3-year-old.


My mom getting annoyed by her bossy tone (I guess) out of nowhere said, "Do you play Robox!?" I think she was trying to get the girl to leave S alone because she was probably uncomfortable.


The girl said, "Yes! I love Roblox!"


My mom... my clueless, harmless mother said, "Have you played "Grab a child?" and immediately mom's eyes went wide and my sister started to crack up. Mom was quick to change the subject, realizing how bad that could sound to anyone listening in. It went right over the little girl's head though.


Oh gee, only my mother...


What is something you've said that you regretted as soon as you said them?
