10 Life Lessons from the Peanuts Gang

    Celebrating more than 65 years of Charles M. Schulz's beloved characters.

    On October 2, 1950, the first Peanuts comic strip was published in nine newspapers across the country. And in the more than 65 years since then, Charlie Brown, Lucy, Woodstock, and the rest of the Peanuts gang have been providing us with heartwarming lessons as told by their legendary creator, Charles M. Schulz. With 17,897 comic strips published in total, it is one of the most influential stories ever written.

    If you're a fan of Snoopy and the rest of the gang, then you'll enjoy the mischievous beagle's hilarious adventures as he discovers some life lessons that everyone can benefit from learning.
