Peanuts, missed.

Peanuts and the gang

Today in 2000 was the last day the comic strip Peanuts was printed. I have love Peanuts since I was young (okay much younger :p) when I started to read the Borneo Bulletin. I only have Garfield to look forward to everyday in the paper now. My other fav cartoon is Tintin, that forever young Belgian reporter and traveller, his dog, Snowy and his thousand, blistering barnacles Captain Haddock.

Peanuts is a syndicated daily and Sunday comic strip written and illustrated by Charles M. Schulz, which ran from October 2, 1950, to February 13, 2000 (the day after Schulz’s death). The strip was one of the most popular and influential in the history of the medium, and was “arguably the longest story ever told by one human being,” according to Professor Robert Thompson of Syracuse University. At its peak, Peanuts ran in over 2,600 newspapers, with a readership of 355 million in 75 countries, and was translated into 21 languages. It helped to cement the four-panel gag strip as the standard in the United States. Reprints of the strip are still syndicated and run in many newspapers.
