** Averted with Faron, who was content to loaf in Frieda's arms all the time and when presented to Snoopy just stares at him with friendly curiosity.

When the kids weren't in school, they were usually playing baseball or having amazingly sophisticated intellectual conversations while leaning on a brick wall. Over the years, the strip became famous for its psychological realism, bordering on an all-out satire of more typically sentimental kiddie comics, though it arguably took a turn away from the philosophical toward more direct comedy relatively early in its run (around 1970). Charlie Brown developed from a standard "lovable loser" into a sensitive and intelligent Everyman, whose relentless track record of failure meant he struggled perpetually with the Really Big Questions. Alternately aiding and exasperating him in his quest were his best friend Linus, a philosopher who sucked his thumb and carried a securityblanket, and Linus' big sister Lucy, a bossy, brassy self-described "fussbudget" who knew that the big problem of the universe was that it never asked ''her'' what to do.

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Is the Great Pumpkin a jerkass genie, putting Linus' faith to test for no good reason? Does it have so high and over-the-top standards, that not even Linus is considered worthy? Or is it as everybody else says: the Great Pumpkin does not exist, and it's just a stupid belief of Linus?
--> '''Linus:''' STUPID? WHAT DO YOU MEAN STUPID? Just wait 'til next year, Charlie Brown. You'll see! Next year at this same time, I'll find a pumpkin patch that is real sincere! And I'll sit in that pumpkin patch until the Great Pumpkin appears! He'll rise out of that pumpkin patch and he'll fly through the air with his bag of toys! The Great Pumpkin will appear! And I'll be waiting for him! I'll be there! I'll be sitting there in that pumpkin patch... And I'll see the Great Pumpkin! Just wait and see, Charlie Brown! I'll see that Great Pumpkin! I'll SEE the Great Pumpkin! Just you wait, Charlie Brown! The Great Pumpkin will appear and I'll be waiting for him! I'll be there! I'll be sitting there in that pumpkin patch... and I'll see the Great Pumpkin! Just wait and see!

* SpellingBee: ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'': One arc involves Charlie Brown entering one. After a bunch of strips involving him practicing for the bee, before he washes out on the first word 'maze', which he spells 'M-A-Y-S'. He was thinking of Willie Mays at the time.
