    Description

    Charles Schulz - Peanuts Sunday Comic Strip Original Art, dated 10-24-54 (United Features Syndicate, 1954). If anyone needs a "security blanket" to comfort him from feelings of discouragement, it is good ol' Charlie Brown! The security blanket was cited in Rheta Grimsley Johnson's biography, Good Grief -- The Story of Charles M. Schulz, as one of the "twelve devices" created for Peanuts that has stood the test of time for the readers. Linus, the usual holder of the blanket, first appeared with his security blanket in the June 1 and 2, 1954 dailies. Lucy soon convinced Charlie Brown he needed a security blanket too. The next appearance of a security blanket was in the Sunday dated a week before this one, when Charlie Brown bought the "outing flannel" neccessary to make his own blanket. Now converted, Charlie Brown explains the virtues of his security blanket to a puzzled Patty and Violet, and even "outs" Schroeder as a blanket holder! This hilarious strip was reprinted on page 284 of Fantagraphics Books' The Complete Peanuts 1953 to 1954. The image area of this Sunday is 22.75" x 15.25", and the art is in Excellent condition.
