* In another 1961 strip, Lucy shows Linus a picture of a little girl "playing on the south lawn of the White House," whom it could be assumed is Caroline, daughter of then-President UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy. Lucy is quick to point out that she isn't holding a blanket. An apparently clueless Linus decides this must be because "her parents can't afford to buy her one" and decides to write to her offering to send her a blanket if she'd like, asking Lucy, "Do you know what her last name is?"
** In an earlier strip that same year (drawn at about the time of JFK's inauguration), Linus dreams of Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, which is the home of the Kennedy family compound.

* The 1984 special ''It's Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown'' contains a sequence during the otherwise original song, "I'm in Shape", where Peppermint Patty sings a bridge that clearly is a spoof of Toni Basil's hit "Mickey".

** Schulz said he named Peppermint Patty after the York Peppermint Pattie candy. In 1966 Peppermint Patties were only sold in the Northeast, Midwest and Florida[[note]]They went national in 1975[[/note]], so it might seem unlikely that the California-based Schulz would've been aware of them, but he certainly could've visited any of the places where they were available. He did in fact travel to Indiana in 1963 to receive an honorary degree from Anderson College.
