In early 1950, Schulz quit the strip after the editor refused to increase his pay from $10 and also refused to move ''Li'l Folks'' to the comics pages of the newspaper. Later that year, he successfully pitched ''Li'l Folks'' to United Feature Syndicate for national distribution. Afterwards, he did some retooling of the concept, including switching from one panel to four and using a set cast instead of random nameless characters. However, editors found the name ''Li'l Folks'' too close to the names of two other comics of the time, ''ComicStrip/LilAbner'' and ''Little Folks''. To avoid confusion, the syndicate changed the name and ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' was born.
