Good Grief

Charlie Brown as Booster GoldCharles Shulz's Peanuts strip turned 60 on Saturday. So, for the second post in a row, I've missed a significant cartoon milestone. Really, somebody ought to tell me these things ahead of time.

I was aware that October 2 was the day that Rock Hudson died. That was the lead story on history.com, which let me down by making no mention of Peanuts. I'm not going to judge which event was more significant -- the initial publication of one of the most popular comic strips in the world or the death of a Hollywood star to a pariah's disease -- but I would think that they both deserve a place in the history books. Or at least the history websites.

By the way, Charlie Brown was four-years-old in his earliest appearances. If he aged like a normal person, he'd be eligible for retirement next year. After 60 years of being so consistently entertaining, you'd think that would be something he'd be looking forward to.
