* FanDislikedExplanation: Schulz always insisted that Linus and the Great Pumpkin was never intended as any sort of commentary on religious faith, but some fans have felt that it ultimately ended up that way. Sequences like Marcie going to a cult deprogrammer after hanging out with Linus, or his KnockingOnHeathensDoor promotion of the Great Pumpkin in later years sure seem like intentional examples of it.

* GeniusBonus: Schulz was a big classical music fan,[[note]] His favourite composer was Creator/JohannesBrahms; he considered making Schroeder a fan of Brahms as well, but thought Beethoven's name, having three syllables instead of one, was more inherently amusing. (Schroeder does let slip in one strip - to his immediate horror - that sometimes he thinks he prefers Brahms to Beethoven, and when Lucy insists in another strip that Beethoven's birthday traditions include girls kissing the objects of their affection on the nose - whereupon she proceeds to act on this "tradition" - a shocked Schroeder says this "could start a stampede to Brahms!")[[/note]] and though his ability to read music was limited, he meticulously copied passages from various piano pieces for strips featuring Schroeder at the piano (mostly [[Creator/LudwigVanBeethoven Beethoven]] piano sonatas, but works by Haydn, Clementi, Chopin, and Rachmaninoff[[note]] The very first strip featuring Schroeder at the piano from 24 September 1951 shows him playing not Beethoven, but Rachmaninoff - specifically, Measure 20 of the Prelude in G minor, Op.23 No.5.[[/note]] among others also showed up), and his pianistic "career" includes some bonuses for fans of classical music.

** Violet and Patty, due to them being huge {{Alpha Bitch}}es a la Muffy Crosswire from ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}''. Thankfully, they both [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome disappeared]] in the mid-to-late 60's.

* EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory: Some fans proffer the idea that Linus's belief in the Great Pumpkin is supposedly a metaphor for religious faith. Though it ''is'' a metaphor for believing in SantaClaus, [[WordOfGod Schulz claimed]] that he thought the idea of a kid confusing Christmas and Halloween (well, Santa Claus and trick-or-treating, anyway) [[RuleOfFunny would be a funny plotline]], but [[{{Jossed}} did not intend to place any deeper meaning or message behind it]].

** Snoopy's family, especially Spike, from the late 70's onward, due to them all being a massive SpotlightStealingSquad & causing the comic to be less charmingly melancholy.

** Rerun, Lucy and Linus' younger brother, was resented by many fans for his perceived CreatorsPet status and attendant increasing time in the spotlight at the expense of more developed and funny characters.
** Any other character introduced into the strip that ran the risk of being this (Charlotte Braun, etc.), Schulz unceremoniously dropped.
