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.
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.
About a month ago, we took a look at an ecstatic Charlie Brown celebrating his gloriously unexpected, game-winning home run. But what happened in the moments leading up to that blast? Let’s take a look.
On March 30, 1993, this strip came out in which Charlie Brown hit a game-winning home run off pitcher Royetta Hobbs. Knowing how the game typically goes for poor Charlie Brown, and seeing how ecstatically he celebrates here, kind of makes me wish I’d been at the ballpark to congratulate him.
Poor Charlie Brown. He’ll just have to find a tree that’s been struck by lightning so he can craft himself a new bat.
We’ve all had a similar experience at some point. Or is that just me?
Happy Friday! Here’s a wonderful Peanuts strip that might give you a chuckle this morning. Based on this, it seems I was using Ken Griffey, Jr.’s glove as a kid. Too bad I don’t still have it; I could’ve sent it back to him.
