Editor’s Dispatch: Happy 100th Birthday, Charles Schulz!

Hi, all! I hope you are recovering from your Thanksgiving feasts if you celebrate!

Today, Saturday, November 26, is a very important day for comics history: the 100th birthday of Charles “Sparky” Schulz, the creator of Peanuts, one of the most beloved comic strips of all time.

Usually, we only post about birthdays related to King Features comics, but Mr. Schulz was such an inspiration and good friend to so many of our cartoonists and had so much influence on the direction of not just comics but pop culture in the 20th century that we wanted to celebrate his legacy. Patrick McDonnell, the creator of MUTTS, spearheaded this project in collaboration with the Charles M. Schulz Museum to celebrate this special birthday!

As you look around Comics Kingdom today, you will see many of cartoonists have contributed to this celebration by honoring Mr. Schulz in their comic strips. Here is a collection where you can see them all together!

To view ALL of the comics that cartoonists made to say “Happy Birthday” to Charles Schulz, please head over to the Schulz Museum for more!
