“A good education . . . ” – Charles M. Schulz

Friday, October 8, 2010. Today I am grateful to be living in a free society where the police can protect me, unlike some other societies. And I am grateful that we have access to good educational and employment opportunities that come in many forms.

“The Games Children Play” on display at the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center, Santa Rosa, California, USA
July 13 through November 28, 2011
Strip Rotation Gallery
This exhibition explores how, in addition to sports, play is portrayed in Peanuts.  Early strips find the Gang involved in imaginative play as they prepare for a martian attack, and a later series of strips find them engrossed in a rousing game of “Ha Ha Herman.” In between they shoot marbles, build snow forts, and fly kites.

It’s a great time to be a

I did not know that there was/is a Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center in Santa Rosa, California, honoring that brilliant, funny and creative cartoonist who loved children and created the famous comic strip Peanuts.

 Charles also undertood the value of education and supportive parents in our society. I love his famous tongue-in-cheek quote:

“A good education is the next best thing to a pushy mother.” 😮

 Charles M. Schulz

“PEANUTS, the most beloved comic strip in history, continues to appear in nearly all 2,600 newspapers that published it before Charles Schulz retired. “As a youngster, I didn’t realize how many Charlie Browns there were in the world,” said Schulz. “I thought I was the only one. Now I realize that Charlie Brown’s goofs are familiar to everybody, adults and children alike.” Classic PEANUTS brings Charlie Brown, Snoopy and all the rest of Schulz’s lovable characters to a new generation of readers, and consistently ranks at the top of newspaper readership polls worldwide. Schulz’s first break came in 1947, when he sold the cartoon “Li’l Folks” to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. In 1950, after many rejections, Schulz boarded a train to New York for a meeting with United Feature Syndicate. On October 2 of that year, PEANUTS debuted in seven newspapers. Schulz drew every PEANUTS comic strip – nearly 18,000 – himself for 50 years. He wrote all the scripts and storyboards for the PEANUTS television specials, earning him five Emmy and two Peabody Awards, and was involved in all aspects of the PEANUTS publishing and licensing programs. On February 12, 2000, Charles Schulz died in Santa Rosa, California. The National Cartoonists Society posthumously awarded him the Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2001, the U.S. Postal Service issued a stamp featuring Snoopy as the World War One Flying Ace, and Schulz was posthumously awarded the Congressional Gold Medal, the U.S.’s highest civilian honor. The Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center opened in Santa Rosa in 2002.”

Thank you, Charles! And thank you for bringing all the Peanuts gang into our homes over the years.
