While most readers might associate Peanuts with the game of baseball, other sports also figured prominently in Charles Schulz’s comic strip. Schulz created over 250 football-themed Peanuts comic strips and his “Fall Classic”—Lucy pulling the ball away from Charlie Brown just as he runs up to kick it—became a rite of autumn in American pop culture.
Schulz’s other football-themed strips are equally memorable for Peanuts aficionados. Who can soon forget the “Mad Punters’” exuberant capers, Woodstock’s valiant gridiron efforts, Marcie’s total ineptitude at the game, or the passion and ferocity which marked Peppermint Patty’s play?
The 50 Sunday and daily strips in this exhibition demonstrate the fun Schulz had with the sport and explore his wonderful world of Pigskin Peanuts.
