Talk about a Flashback Friday of epic proportions – on this day, 65 years ago (October 2, 1950), Charles Schulz’s Peanuts appeared in newspapers for the first time!
What began in 1950 grew into an incredible legacy, with Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the gang becoming some of the most recognizable characters in history.
Thrilled to commemorate this special milestone, we’re hosting a month-long celebration on GoComics!
We kicked off the Peanuts party in a previous blog post, inviting readers around the globe to share Peanuts fan art. As a reward for sharing renditions of favorite characters or scenes from the strip, each participant will receive exclusive Peanuts prizes! We’ve already received several stellar submissions, which we’re showcasing all month long on our fan art page:
