** In some mid-1950s strips, there was a running gag of a character being told that he or she is doing something wrong, and then replying with "Five hundred years from now, who'll know the difference?"

** In a 1953 strip, the kids mention a girl named June whose birthday is in June. This is the only time a neighborhood child is mentioned without ever being seen.

** Schulz himself seemed to use a lot of outdated terminology with surprising persistence, such as "tricks or treats" instead of "trick or treat", and "good-by" instead of "goodbye".

** Snoopy was a normal dog, and he wasn't Charlie Brown's pet. There were also a few instances where he actually "talked" (albeit not to other characters) instead of using thought bubbles, such as [[http://www.gocomics.com/peanuts/1954/03/09 these]] [[http://www.gocomics.com/peanuts/1954/03/11 two]] 1954 strips. This changed [[http://www.gocomics.com/peanuts/1954/03/16 less than a week later]], strangely.

* FakeHairDrama: Invoked twice with Peppermint Patty choosing to wear a wig. In a 1974 story arc, she gets a tall, curly wig to wear to an ice skating competition she's entered after Charlie Brown's barber father gives her a boy's haircut by mistake; in the end, after it turns out [[spoiler:she's made a mistake and entered a ''roller'' skating competition]], she gives the wig to her coach (Snoopy) as payment for her skating lessons. In a 1988 story arc, she wears a wig for her school class picture that's so big it ends up obscuring the faces of several classmates, including Marcie, much to the anger of her classmates' mothers. Patty, pleased with how she looks, decides to wear the wig every day from now on, but finally gets rid of it when another kid insults her appearance and she retaliates by stuffing the entire wig into his mouth.

* MotorMouth: Freida was like this in her earliest appearances. Linus even comments to Charlie Brown after Freida leaves in one strip, "Freida sits behind me in school... I haven't heard a word our teacher has said this whole semester!"


Added DiffLines:

* OnlyChildSyndrome: In the first couple years of the strip, each kid (Charlie Brown, Shermy, Patty, Violet, Schroeder and Lucy) was an only child. Then months after Lucy's debut in 1952, Linus was born. In 1959, Sally Brown was born, making Charlie Brown a big brother. By the end of the strip's run, the only ''Peanuts'' kids that weren't only children included Charlie and Sally Brown, Lucy and Linus and Rerun Van Pelt, and the kids 3, 4 and 5 95472. Even Snoopy was shown to have siblings beginning in TheSeventies.
