Celebrating the Schulz Centennial This Month

What was the original name of the Peanuts comic?

The Peanuts comics have become one of the most popular comic strips of all time, but the name of it was changed from Charles M. Schulz’s original vision.

The Sun asks and answers the question.

Peanuts Fandom shows the Li’l Folks panels by Sparky.


As a cartoonist, I’m always asked about my greatest influences. I have quite a few, but my earliest — like many, many cartoonists — was Charles Schulz (Peanuts).

Therefore, you can imagine how honored I am to be speaking at the Charles M Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, CA on Saturday, June 25! It’s a beautiful museum and venue. I visited in 2009 and can’t wait to get back.

I hope you west coasters and your families will join me. I’ll talk about my career as a cartoonist, author, and greeting card writer (amusing images included). I’ll even go back further in time to those days of doodling Snoopy and Woodstock on everything and everyone.

Terri Libenson will visit The Charles M. Schulz Museum later this month.

Meet Terri Libenson, the New York Times best-selling author of the Emmie & Friends series, including Invisible Emmie (HarperCollins), and the Reuben Award-winning creator of the nationally syndicated comic strip, The Pajama Diaries (2006–2020). Libenson was also an award-winning humorous card writer and illustrator for American Greetings for 22 years. She will talk about her work, draw her characters, and sign books following the talk. Seating is limited; advance tickets recommended.
