“Charles Schulz was an American treasure - an artist, philosopher, and keen observer of human life”
“The world of Peanuts is a microcosm, a little human comedy for the innocent reader and for the sophisticated”
“Charles Schulz was, plain and simple, a great artist and philosopher … But most importantly, he teaches all ages that if you can learn to laugh at the things that cause you the most pain you will be the strongest of all. Peanuts: a real way of life”
“I became obsessed by it. The obvious thing is the wit, and the irony, but there’s also a sort of spiritual simplicity in Woodstock and Snoopy, silent clowns who have the deepest thoughts about the human conundrum. And the set-up of the boy who always underachieves and his dog who’s brilliant at everything - it’s hilarious. We all went to school with a Lucy, or a Linus, or a Pigpen”
Charles M. Schulz was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1922 and grew up in Saint Paul. He gained a reputation worldwide as a cartoonis for his work on Peanuts. He died in 2000.
