** One storyline has Charlie Brown contracting "eraserophagia" after nibbling on erasers, prompting him to lampshade this at one point:
--->'''Charlie Brown''': So I'm an eraser nibbler! Why should I be punished for it? Can't I ever get away with anything?
--->'''Linus''': [[AsTheGoodBookSays "Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap."]]
--->'''Charlie Brown''': (''banging his head on a tree'') I can't stand it!

* DrenchCelebration:
** This was a RunningGag in the special ''You're In The Super Bowl, Charlie Brown'', where after Snoopy's football team, the Birds, are triumphant in beating the other teams, the teammates dump a cooler of [[BlandNameProduct Chirpade]] over his head, except for the third and final game, where they do this to [[{{Jerkass}} Lucy]] as well.
** In one ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' strip, Lucy decides to drench Charlie Brown with water, despite their team never having won a game. When she does follow through with it, Linus screams "Are you out of your mind? Charlie Brown is gonna hate you for the rest of your life!"

* 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.)

* 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 World" 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.

* LastNameBasis: Schroeder, probably. An early strip had a radio announcer credit "Mr. Schroeder" with a request he wrote in. It's possible that he insists on being called by his last name in homage to people referring to Beethoven that way, but if this is the case, we never learned his first name.

* TakeThat: 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. Which is also an example of HypocriticalHumor, when you remember just how much ''Peanuts'' merch there is (and if anything there was even more back when that comic was made).
