ABOUT THE PEANUTS
The Peanuts is a comic strip written and illustrated by Charles M. Shulz, which ran from October 2, 1950, to February 13, 2000. It is considered the most famous comic strips of them all with 17,897 strips published in all. 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 has been described as "the most shining example of the American success story in the comic strip field", ironically based on the theme of "the great American unsuccess story", since the main character, Charlie Brown, is meek, nervous and lacks self-confidence, being unable to fly a kite, win a baseball game or kick a football.
