Interesting catch by Nat Gertler of the

Time Magazine has a book coming up announcing The 100 Most Influential People Who Never Lived ? and the team of Charlie Brown and Lucy made the list! In a one-page essay written by Time?s pop culture writer James Poniewozik, the book reflects not so much on them as individuals but on how they relate to each other, not as enemies but as opposites. This book doesn?t land until September, but you can preorder it now.

It’s an interesting angle, to portray Charlie and Lucy as opposites and not enemies, though I’m not sure how that would make them “most influential.” I actually never thought of the “Peanuts” characters as enemies, but only as opposites, and Lucy seemed an extreme opposite to everyone, especially Charlie and Linus. One could say Lucy was her own worst enemy.

Look forward to reading the article.

What about Peppermint Patty? What about the Red Baron (Snoopy)? Who makes these list anyway?
