1963-1964 (Vol. 7)

“My name is 555 95472 but everyone calls me 5 for short... I have two sisters named 3 and 4.” With those words, Charles Schulz introduced three of the quirkiest characters to the Peanuts universe, the numerically monikered 95472 siblings. They didn’t stay around long, but offered some choice bits of satirical nonsense while they did. As it happens, this volume is particularly rich in never-before-reprinted work: more than 150 strips (over one-fifth of the book!) have never seen the light of day since their original appearance until reappearing in The Complete Peanuts. These “lost” strips include Linus making a near-successful run for class president that is ultimately derailed by his religious beliefs (two words: “great” and “pumpkin”), and Snoopy getting involved with a group of politically fanatical birds. Also in this volume: Lucy creates an educational slideshow of Charlie Brown’s faults (it’s so long there’s an intermission!) and Snoopy’s doghouse begins its conceptual expansion (the ceiling is so huge that Linus can paint a vast “history of civilization” mural on it). Introduction by Bill Melendez, animator of A Charlie Brown Christmas.


1965-1966 (Vol. 8)

We are now in the mid-1960s, one of Schulz’s peak periods of creativity (and one third of the way through the strip’s life!). Snoopy has become the strip’s dominant personality, and this volume marks two milestones for the character: the first of many “dogfights” with the nefarious Red Baron, and the launch of his writing career (“It was a dark and stormy night...”). Two new characters — the first two from outside the strip’s regular little neighborhood — make their bows. Roy (who befriends Charlie Brown and then Linus at summer camp) won’t have a lasting impact, but upon his return from camp he regales a friend of his with tales of the strange kids he met, and she has to go check them out for herself. Her name? Peppermint Patty!
