Charles M. Schulz created some of the world’s most recognizable young characters, but Peanuts was not his only foray into the funny pages.

Charles M. Schulz with simple line drawings was able to convey a whole set of emotions. The wholesomeness of those lines became jaggier with age but tapped into the universality of happiness. Peanuts: Happiness Is Having a Friend A Fill-In Book taps into the Peanutsverse with some of the most iconic images of the Peanuts gang.
Peanuts were written and drawn by one man for 50 years. In those 50 years, politics crept in a subtle manner but left a deep imprint. Charles M. Schulz never wanted Peanuts to be a gag comic strip. Peanuts were cerebral at times. Laughter was never the end goal. Peanuts stood above the heap of comic strips from the beginning. Unlike Pogo where politics was the main raison d’etre. Pogo is a brilliantly drawn strip but has lost its meaning with the advancement of time. Peanuts driving force has always been about simplicity at the core. This is why Peanuts is timeless.
