* one December 1952 strip showed Lucy showing Linus to sit up close to the television, after the third panel of that strip, well, [[ https://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/peanuts/images/0/0d/Pe521211.gif/revision/latest?cb=20130526153201 take a look what happened in the final panel of the strip]].

* A meta example: Early runs of the strip featured a minor character named Charlotte Braun, who was not very well-liked by fans due to her one-note personality. A young fan wrote to Schulz to complain about her, and his reply was that he would eventually take Charlotte Braun out of the strip, but he warned her that she would have “the death of an innocent child” on her conscience, and asked her if she was prepared to accept such a responsibility. At the bottom of the letter was a drawing of Charlotte Braun ''with an axe planted in her head.'' Yikes.

* In the TV special ''A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving'', we get the sight of Snoopy and Woodstock enjoying a Thanksgiving feast. A cooked turkey is on the table as we watch Snoopy and Woodstock thoroughly enjoying their meal. Everyone knows that a turkey is a bird...''and so is Woodstock''...

* One story arc has Linus' blanket [[AnimateInanimateObject come to life]] and start stalking and attacking Lucy at every opportunity to the point where she stays outside all night hiding from it. At one point it lunges out of Linus' hands at her, and it has a ''mouth''.

* Though it's not official, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OTqvbh8Hko WITS did a sketch]] of an "unpublished lost strip", with Creator/PagetBrewster as Lucy, regarding the ol' classic football gag. Except that she insists that she never pulled the football away, and he's just imagining it. Like the kite-eating tree, or [[spoiler:Snoopy being alive.]] It's not clear which is worse; the idea that Charlie's been hallucinating ''everything'' we just chalked up to "comic strip weirdness", or that a little girl is ''that'' good at {{gaslighting}} someone.

* The way Lucy was originally depicted in the strip can have a potentially UncannyValley feel as well. Just [[http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/peanuts/images/7/77/19520330.gif/revision/latest?cb=20130329165655 look at her]].

* In one very old series of strips set in winter back in February of 1960, Snoopy wakes up to find an icicle the size of a sword dangling over his doghouse, and was too terrified to budge an inch, lest it crash down and kill him. Eventually, Charlie Brown convinced him to make a dash for it by placing a freshly-baked pizza several hundred yards away; when he caught a whiff of his favorite food, he charged for it and escaped, ''just in time'', as true to his fear, the icicle crashed down and destroyed the doghouse. What was terrifying was how much TruthInTelevision this is – icicles ''can'' and ''have'' killed people.

--> '''Charlie Brown and Lucy''': Saved by a Pizza!
--> '''Snoopy''': Oh, Good Grief!

The strip from October 21, 1984 features Snoopy and the Beagle Scouts sitting around a campfire at night. Snoopy tells them that there's a full moon out, and that they had better be careful, because when the full moon is out, he turns into a "Werebeagle". Snoopy is briefly shown as a Werebeagle for a single panel, which scares the Beagle Scouts.
