The US Postal Service issues Peanuts stamp of approval

charles m Schulz 2022 stamps

The US Postal Service presents new stamps to salute the centennial of cartoonist Charles M. Schulz (1922–2000) whose Peanuts characters are some of the best known and most beloved in all of American culture. For five decades, Schulz alone wrote and drew nearly 18,000 strips, the last one published the day after he died. His resonant stories found humor in life’s painful realities including rejection, insecurity and unrequited love.

In a celebratory mode, characters from Peanuts adorn 10 designs on this pane of 20 stamps and form a frame around a 1987 photograph of Schulz. The Charles M. Schulz Museum has been selected to host the First Day of Issue Stamp Dedication Ceremony on Friday, September 30, 2022, at Noon.
