* 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 aboutů 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.

** Snoopy was so iconic that that, in some countries (like Sweden), the comic strip is ''named'' after him.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: There are some who consider Lucy's cruelty toward Charlie Brown as a mask for her own romantic feelings for himů yes, there are people who act like that. 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.

*** To the point that, in some countries (like Sweden), the comic strip is ''named'' after him.



*** 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.

** Ironically enough, once the strip became popular many people wound up [[IconicCharacterForgottenTitle forgetting the actual title and thinking it was called "Charlie Brown" or "Snoopy"]].

** Most of the animated specials and book collections include "Charlie Brown" in the title, but the title panels on the Sunday strips for many years said ''Peanuts featuring '''GOOD OL' CHARLIE BROWN'''''.
** In Italy it was known as "Linus" back in the day by most readers, mostly because the comic strip was published in a magazine [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linus_(magazine) named after him]].
** In Brazil there is an attempt to equal character and title by making Charlie Brown nicknamed "Minduim" (from amendoim, "Peanut").

* BaseBreaker: Lucy. People either [[JerkassDissonance love her]] for her personality and her RunningGag of swiping the football away from Charlie at the last millisecond, or hate her for the very same reasons.
** WordOfGod: "Lucy is a good character to write forů but I don't like her."

** There's ''[[http://3eanuts.com/ 3eanuts]]'', a ''Webcomic/GarfieldMinusGarfield''-style attempt to recontextualize ''Peanuts'' by leaving off the final panel, which often emphasizes the cruel, depressing nature of the strip. That said, it doesn't work nearly as well as ''Garfield Minus Garfield'' because ''Peanuts'' isn't as formulaic as ''Garfield'', and really most humorous works would come off as depressing if you trimmed out the jokes.
