See :http://www.peanuts.com/comics/peanuts/meet_the_gang/
Peanuts was one of the first comic strips with more than two or three characters. Just like your own family and relatives, each Peanuts character brings special humor and insight to life. Click on the characters on the left to learn more about them.
For example: Lucy Van Pelt works hard at being bossy, crabby and selfish. She is loud and yells a lot. Her smiles and motives are rarely pure. She's a know-it-all who dispenses advice whether you want it or not--and for Charlie Brown, there's a charge. She's a fussbudget, in the true sense of the word. She's a real grouch, with only one or two soft spots, and both of them may be Schroeder, who prefers Beethoven. As she sees it, hers is the only way. The absence of logic in her arguments holds a kind of shining lunacy. When it comes to compliments, Lucy only likes receiving them. If she's paying one--or even smiling--she's probably up to something devious.
Quite enjoyable, I should say.
Regards,
N.Raghavan

Very nice Jan 28, 2004

I've never been a diehard fan, but I did enjoy the strip - when I kept track of it.

Incidentally, please note that Snoopy started out as an outfielder and must have advanced to the prestigious shortstop position some time later!

Cheers,
Pawel Skalinski

TOPIC STARTER
He started as just a dog Jan 29, 2004

And became an outfielder some 7 years afterwards. I give below the notings about him:
Snoopy
Snoopy is an extroverted beagle with a Walter Mitty complex. He is a virtuoso at every endeavor- at least in his daydreams atop his doghouse. He regards his master, Charlie Brown, as "that round-headed kid" who brings him his supper dish. He is fearless though prudently cautious about "the cat next door." He never speaks- that would be one human trait too many- but he manages to convey everything necessary in facial expressions and thought balloons. A one-man show with superior intelligence and vivid imagination, he has created such multiple personalities as: Joe Cool, World War I Flying Ace, Literary Ace, Flashbeagle, Vulture, Foreign Legionnaire, etc.

October 4, 1950
Snoopy's first appearance. Here he is just a cute dog.

April 12, 1957
Snoopy's debut on Charlie Brown's baseball team.
I am unable to paste the respective strips as indicated above.
Regards,
N.Raghavan
