*** The system isn't ''quite'' perfect, mind, because Rerun remains notably younger than Linus and Lucy and is the only kid who never actually starts school, even after existing as a character for years. His aging seems to have stopped earlier than the other kids; maybe because he's the only kid who has ''two'' older siblings?
*** Actually, Rerun does start Kindergarten in 1996.

**That was likely Charlie Brown trolling/humoring Linus.

*Woodstock occasionally appeared as a mechanic in the Flying Ace fantasies. Does this disprove the WMG, or ramp up the drama that the Flying Ace's archnemesis is secretly part of his own crew?

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG:Charlie Brown is a reformed bully]]
Charlie Brown in the early comics is very different from the insecure and wishy-washy round-headed kid we would come to know. He teased the other characters regularly and at times could be [[http://www.gocomics.com/peanuts-begins/2017/05/02 downright arrogant]]. Is it any wonder so many of the other kids didn't like him?

[[WMG: Yosemite Sam is the father of Linus, Lucy, and Rerun]]
Lucy obviously takes after him. Linus and Rerun, not so much.

Read the Fantographics books, especially the mid-1950s through the late 1960s. No adults to be seen (except bizarre outsized creatures in one series of strips Schulz himself regretted drawing), strangely empty and sterile neighborhoods, the older children like Charlie Brown and the aged-up Lucy making disciplinary and judgement calls normally left to parents for their younger siblings, Snoopy growing from a normal-looking beagle puppy into a giant-headed freak (all that nuclear fallout.) Admittedly, this does create some problems with where Rerun came from....

* Not completely impossible. This Troper works in a book store that also sells toy pianos. Occasionally, this one little prodigy will tap out a rather tinny but recognizable version of ''Fur Elise''.

* Lucy has it even worse. Not only did she fall on her head a lot during her formative toddler years, but she always landed completely head first. [[http://www.gocomics.com/peanuts/1952/05/25 This strip is not only a good example, but implies this happened every day for awhile.]] Maybe that's why she has so many mood swings

* Charlie Brown not knowing her name isn't actually that unrealistic. He could have forgotten her name, especially possible if he spaces out staring at her in class instead of paying attention to attendance or if they don't share a class, but he's too much of a nervous wreck to ask her. Doesn't really explain why Linus or anyone else who knows her doesn't tell her or seem to know her name themselves. Perhaps, like Pig Pen and Rerun, she simply lacks a
"real" name.

* While not canon, the reverse could be true, at least in some ads. A MetLife ad showed Charlie Brown holding hands with Lucy and Snoopy as they walked down the path of life. And [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4QNKnUH1v4 this PSA/solicitation]] has Charlie Brown saying "I love her", looking at Lucy...at least sort of.
