Adults by Schulz

Charles M. Schulz created some of the world’s most recognizable young characters, but Peanuts was not his only foray into the funny pages. Sometime in the mid-1950s, Schulz developed a concept for a workplace humor strip featuring adults. He titled it Hagemeyer, after his close friend from the Army.

Charles M. Schulz created some of the world’s most recognizable young characters, but Peanuts was not his only foray into the funny pages. Sometime in the mid-1950s, Schulz developed a concept for a workplace humor strip featuring adults. He titled it Hagemeyer, after his close friend from the Army. The strip was proposed to United Feature Syndicate as a new strip by Charles Schulz and was drawn on blank Peanuts frame templates from this era. Until now, all seven strips have never been seen together in person or in publication! Delight in a rare opportunity to see characters differing from the beloved Peanuts Gang. The exhibition also features artwork by Schulz from the Saturday Evening Post, along with Young Pillars, a single panel comic whose characters resemble Peanuts characters as teenagers, and It’s Only a Game, one of Schulz’s only collaborations with another artist.
