70 years ago today, Linus Van Pelt, my favorite Peanuts character made his first appearance in the Peanuts strips. He was born a few months earlier, but this marked his very first appearance. Happy Linus Day!
It's a good thing that Peanuts aren't owned by any major American company, and still has Schulz Family involvement. WildBrian and Sony Music Entertainment Japan have so far been good majority owners. (Hope this post doesn't turn sour in the future) Saying this after seeing the newest specials that have been done pretty well, whilst taking a risk of not just doing stories from the strips.
