Charlie Brown is a terrible manager

It’s been a minute since I last posted a Peanuts strip.  Happy Friday, everyone!

Keep the trademark up

Poor Charlie Brown.  You can’t say Lucy didn’t follow instructions.  This is definitely a good lesson in elaboration and clarity.

Another great season

May all our favorite shortstops perform better than Linus in the upcoming season.

Grit your teeth

Grit your teeth or relax at the plate?  It depends on your hitting coach.

Peanuts: Back on the Mound

I have been posting plenty of Peanuts strips here, but now, how about a motion clip?  I feel bad for Linus in this — nobody applauds his spectacular running-up-the-tree catch in the first moments of the video.


Warming up

Here is an old Peanuts strip from Charles Schulz’s earliest years creating the comic.  This particular strip comes from 1951, when Peanuts was less than a year old.  Charlie Brown came a long way over the years.

Charlie Brown’s post-home run glow

After hitting his first home run ever (and winning the game with it, to boot), one certainly can’t blame Charlie Brown for wanting to revel in the feeling of baseball glory.
