* There are some who consider Lucy's cruelty toward Charlie Brown as [[LovingBully a mask for her own romantic feelings for him.]] Since Lucy's kindness towards Charlie Brown (or in general) is a strong case of DependingOnTheWriter some specials/strips give this theory a lot more credibility than others.

** The RunningGag of Peppermint Patty falling asleep in class is funny until it's eventually revealed that she's a latchkey kid who constantly stays up late waiting for her single dad to come home. She's not lazy: she's genuinely sleep-deprived.
** The name of Snoopy's birthplace, the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm, doesn't sound ''quite'' so charming now that the disgraceful conditions of many "puppy mill" dog-breeding facilities are better known.

** Snoopy. The first couple of years of the strip had him being a non-entity who never spoke and was treated as a secondary character. But he quickly became arguably the most famous character of the series.
** Alternatively, you have Lucy (upstaging original female lead characters Patty and Violet) and Peppermint Patty, who had her own supporting cast of sorts (Franklin, Marcie, and occasionally José Peterson).
** Schulz admitted in the liner notes to one book that Peppermint Patty was probably the only one of his characters besides Charlie Brown who could carry a strip by herself.



** The Little Red Haired Girl has a good amount of fanworks with [[FanPreferredCouple Charlie Brown]].

* FollowTheLeader: ''Peanuts'' was influential on comic strips in general, but a few strips took very specific inspiration from it:
** ''ComicStrip/ThePerishers'' (1959-2006) was a British strip about a group of kids and a dog. The humor was more British-style and the artwork was more in line with British strips like ''ComicStrip/AndyCapp''.
** ''Winthrop'' (1967-1993). After ''Peanuts'' became a cultural phenomenon, Dick Cavalli {{retool}}ed his strip ''Morty Meekle'' to be about… a group of kids and a dog. It also had some slightly altered [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of ''Peanuts'' characters: instead of Pig-Pen, an obsessively ''clean'' boy (Spotless [=McPartland=]); instead of Lucy, a belligerent ''boy'', and so on. The artwork was reminiscent of early ''Peanuts'' as well, but it ''did'' feature some adults in the cast.
