Peanuts and the Picture of Health

July 27, 2016 through January 16, 2017 | Strip Rotation Gallery

Charles Schulz’s careful study of health issues informed many Peanuts plotlines. From physical fitness to mental well-being, Peanuts highlighted a range of topics regarding personal health. Schulz grew up playing baseball, football, and ice hockey, and later took up jogging, tennis, and even rollerblading—all pursuits that found themselves playfully depicted in the panels of Peanuts.
