Pat Shingleton: "Working for Peanuts..."
The comic strip “Peanuts” would regularly depict a variety of weather scenes: Snoopy sunbathing atop his box, Lucy carrying an umbrella, Charlie shoveling snow. The Little Blue Book notes that on December 9, 1965, “A Charlie Brown Christmas” premiered on television and was based on the Infancy Narrative of St. Luke as Charlie tries to find the true meaning of Christmas. The program won an Emmy and a Peabody Award; resulting in 30 additional Peanuts shows. Peanuts creator, Charles Schultz’s first job was as a cartoonist at the Catholic magazine, Timeless Topix. His cartoon strip was retired in January, 2000 and when the final “Peanuts” cartoon appeared in the Sunday papers, he died in his sleep on February 12, 2000.
