You can see them here:

***Charlie Brown*** wins your heart with his losing ways. It always rains on his parade, his baseball game, and his life. He\'s an inveterate worrier who frets over trifles (but who\'s to say they\'re trifles?). Although he is concerned with the true meaning of life, his friends sometimes call him \"blockhead.\" Other than his knack for putting himself down, there are few sharp edges of wit in his repertoire; usually he\'s the butt of the joke, not the joker. He can be spotted a mile away in his sweater with the zig zag trim, head down, hands in pocket, headed for Lucy\'s psychiatric booth. He is considerate, friendly and polite and we love him knowing that he\'ll never win a baseball game or the heart of the little red-haired girl, kick the football Lucy is holding or fly a kite successfully. His friends call him \"wishy-washy,\" but his spirit will never give up in his quest to triumph over adversity. \"

\"***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.\"
