On November 26, 1922, Charles Schulz, American cartoonist and creator of the Peanuts comic strip, was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Schulz’s Peanuts characters (including the beloved Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Woodstock, and Linus) have a special place in American pop culture, appearing not just in comic strips, but in holiday TV specials and as floats in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!

Schulz’s work is beloved not just for its humor, but its heart. Many people, including Schulz himself, could relate to Charlie Brown’s experiences with shyness, pessimism, and failure, but also to his continuing optimism, kindness, and perseverance.

Did you know? Snoopy got his name from Schulz’s mother, who had remarked that if the family ever got another dog, they should name it Snoopy after the affectionate Norwegian term, “Snuppa”.
