** And it's just as well they aren't seen, because the rare situations where the main characters had to interact with them portrayed them as ''incompetent''. In one story arc, Charlie Brown went to talk to his pediatrician to find out why the school board (which the doctor was a member of) had banned a book called ''The Three Bunny Wunnies Freak Out'' from the school library. The doctor fainted. The nurse later told Charlie Brown that little kids made him nervous. (Remember, this was a ''pediatrician''.) Later, Charlie Brown told Linus that the doctor admitted that he only reads medical journals, but the pictures upset him.
** Another story arc shows that Peppermint Patty's teacher is a LawfulStupid type. A hole in the ceiling classroom was causing rain to fall on Patty's head. According to Marcie, the teacher couldn't move Patty to another desk, because that would [[SkewedPriorities disrupt the alphabetical seating arrangement.]]


Added DiffLines:

* AfraidOfNeedles:
** Linus is not only afraid of getting shots, he's scared when he has to get a sliver taken out of his finger with a needle or tweezers. (For the latter, Charlie Brown gave some advice, telling him to pretend he was being tortured by pirates who wanted him to tell them where the gold was buried. After having his mother remove the sliver -- indicated by an off-panel scream from Linus -- he came back and said, "I told them where the gold was buried!")
** In one arc, Lucy and Peppermint Patty wanted to get their ears pierced, [[SarcasmMode and Marcie was a big help]], telling them about all the dangers of getting that done by an unskilled amateur; Patty almost freaked when Marcie mentioned a penicillin shot. Eventually they decided to go the safe route and have a doctor do it, but Lucy chickened out and ran after hearing Patty overreact to it.
** One strip shows ''the entire cast of the strip'' trying to pry Snoopy off of a tree, with Snoopy pleading, "I don't ''want'' another rabies shot!" (Fortunately, he got it.)

* TakeThat:
** Over the years ''Magazine/{{MAD}}'' magazine was very fond of parodying ''Peanuts'' in their publication. Schulz got back by featuring Alfred E. Neuman in one 1973 strip.
** The short-lived '80s character "Tapioca Pudding" was a TakeThat to MerchandiseDriven franchises like ''WesternAnimation/StrawberryShortcake''. Her father works in licensing and is planning to put her likeness on lunchboxes and countless other knickknacks.

*** In one particularly egregious example, Patty let Charlie Brown take over for her as pitcher with her team leading 50-0 and two outs in the bottom of the ninth. They lost 51-50.

* InstrumentalThemeTune: Technically called "Linus and Lucy," but rumors that someone out of the production crew called it anything other than the "Charlie Brown Theme" turned out to be exaggerated.

* NotSoStoic: Linus pointed that a moving van is coming. Charlie Brown stays completely cool and indiferent. When Linus pointed that the van stopped at the little red haired girl's house, all of Charlie's life [[MyLifeFlashedBeforeMyEyes flashed before his eyes]].

* OddballInTheSeries: The television specials ''The Big Stuffed Dog'' and ''It's the Girl in the Red Truck, Charlie Brown''. The former is set in the "Real Word" and is about a kid and his stuffed Snoopy doll (this and the fact that Charles M. Schulz wrote it are the only things that even make it count as ''Peanuts''). The latter only has Charlie Brown and Snoopy at the very beginning and end, and stars Spike in a MediumBlending adventure with a character played by Schulz's daughter.
