* 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).
