Happy Birthday to the Peanuts Gang

Peanuts - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Peanuts is a syndicated daily and Sunday American comic strip written and illustrated by Charles M. Schulz, which ran from October 2, 1950, to February 13, 2000, continuing in reruns afterward. The strip is the most popular and influential in the history of the comic strip, with 17,897 strips published in all,[1] making it "arguably the longest story ever told by one human being", according to Robert Thompson of Syracuse University. At its peak, Peanuts ran in over 2,600 newspapers, with a readership of 355 million in 75 countries, and was translated into 21 languages.

My all-time favorite comic strip, and probably the only one I've read in its entirety.

I still read and enjoy it, though Calvin and Hobbs is my favorite all time.
