** If it's any consolation, it's not canon but at least once [[https://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/s--X9IZ7Oar--/c_scale,f_auto,fl_progressive,q_80,w_800/18loys3jr0e3kjpg.jpg Charlie Brown kicked that football with a little help]].

** Charlie Brown basically [[https://image.ibb.co/fWYiow/bunglekid.jpg looks like this kid]] from that ''Mr. Bungle'' short so famously spoofed by Pee-Wee Herman. A very short platinum-blond crew-cut where you practically look bald (which makes the boy in ''Mr. Bungle'' come off as a weirdo for combing his hair. Like....''what hair?''"

* This is the same troper from the above two entries. Anyway, it just bugged me that [[GenericGuy Shermy]] got brother chucked and replaced by Franklin, who was virtually the same, except for the fact [[TokenMinority he was black]]. TheOtherWiki or somewhere else once said that Franklin "proved to be more interesting in the long run". How exactly was he more interesting? Are black people more interesting than white people? Does Franklin have better hair? Why Why Why? (I do not hold anything against Franklin nor am I a Shermy fan or a racist, this is just something that bugged me)

* Even for Charlie Brown standards, the New Year's special is cruel. Why does Charlie Brown's teacher make him read ''WarAndPeace'' during Christmas vacation ''and'' expect him to write a report on it?! Did he put a tack on her chair or something? When I was in school, my teachers never gave us homework during Christmas vacation, especially not impossible ones like that. It's because of Charlie's teacher being such a [[TheGrinch Grinchette]] that I can't stand that special.

** My fifth-grade teacher pulled that kind of shit, though not with anything as long as ''WarAndPeace''. Every evening, weekend, and school holiday was consumed by reading or writing reports. I strongly suspect that my lasting difficulties with essays are a direct result of this.

*** Remember, despite his frequent assertion that nobody likes him, Charlie Brown has the love of two good parents, and he does indeed have numerous friends (Linus, Schroeder, Marcie, Peppermint Patty, etc) about whom the worst that can be said is they have their own eccentricities and faults and are not at all blind to his. Charlie Brown desires much and so is frequently disappointed, attempts much and so often fails. He ''has'' succeeded a few times, but one of the continuing messages of the strip, along with Charlie Brown's continued perseverance, is delivered by Linus at the end of ''A Boy Named Charlie Brown,'' which is that failure (or in this case, lack of success as he ''did'' come in second in the spelling bee) is not necessarily crippling. Not "don't be discouraged," because you ''will'' be discouraged, not "you'll ultimately succeed," because you may not, but that failure will only destroy you if you let it.

* Back to ''War and Peace'' from the New Year's special: Charlie Brown goes to a store to ask for various adaptations of the book such as film or sound recordings but is unsuccessful. Why did he not think to check the library or elsewhere for study guides on ''War and Peace''? These did exist as early as 1958 (Cliffs Notes was invented that year) and this was my first instinct anytime I was assigned a book in school or college.

** I always thought it was a term of great respect, and "ma'am' felt too "old-lady-ish".
