- First appearance: October 2, 1950
- “Good ol’ Charlie Brown” is the lovable loser in the zig-zag t-shirt – the kid who never gives up (even though he almost never wins). He manages the world’s worst baseball team...yet shows up for every game. He can’t muster the courage to talk to the Little Red-Haired girl...yet keeps hoping. Even though he gets grief from his friends, his kite-eating tree, even his own dog, Charlie Brown remains the stalwart hero.
- Did you know: Charlie Brown's dad is a barber just like Charles Schulz's father was.
- First appearance: October 4, 1950
- The wildly imaginative, supremely confident, world-famous beagle is a canine master of disguise. As Joe Cool, he’s aloof, unflappable, above the fray, the hip dog we’d all like to be. As the World War I Flying Ace, he engages in aerial combat with the notorious Red Baron. While pondering life from the top of his doghouse, he writes the great American novel, travels to the moon, and plots revenge on the cat next door.
- Did you know: Snoopy reads "War and Peace" at the rate of one word a day.
- First appearance: September 19, 1952
- The benevolent, blanket-clutching philosopher always has a kind word for everybody...even his bossy older sister, Lucy. While he’s often the voice of reason in the neighborhood, Linus also believes firmly in the Great Pumpkin, and he suffers more than most when people (or pumpkins) let him down.
- Did you know: Linus wore glasses for a short time. Snoopy constantly stole them to torment him.
- First appearance: March 3, 1952
- Known around the neighborhood (and by her little brother, Linus) for being crabby and bossy, Lucy can often be found dispensing advice from her 5-cent psychiatrist’s booth, yanking away Linus’ security blanket, or humiliating Charlie Brown. Lucy’s only weakness? Her unrequited love for the piano-playing Schroeder.
- Did you know: Lucy often speaks out for women’s rights and has high aspirations to one day be President and Queen.
- First appearance: May 3, 1951
- This mini musical genius is rarely separated from his toy piano or his idol, Beethoven – except when he’s calling a game as the reliable catcher on Charlie Brown’s baseball team. The rest of his time is spent fending off unwanted advances from the bane of his existence: Lucy.
- Did you know: Schulz chose Beethoven as Schroeder's muse because he believed words beginning with "B" sounded funny...like blockhead and beagle.
- First appearance: August 23, 1959
- Charlie Brown’s little sister believes the world owes her an explanation. Why does she have to go to school? Why doesn’t Linus, her Sweet Babboo, love her? And what’s the capital of Venezuela? Sally is always on the hunt for answers – and when she doesn’t get them, she comes up with a whole new philosophy: “Who cares?”
- Did you know: For 6 months, Sally experienced amblyopia ("lazy eye") and wore an eye patch.
- First appearance: July 13, 1954
- Happily traveling in his own private dust storm, Pigpen is completely comfortable in his own (dust-streaked) skin. Despite his outward appearance, he always carries himself with dignity, knowing full well that he has affixed to him the “dust of countless ages.”
- Did you know: Charlie Brown is the one kid that unconditionally accepts Pigpen for who he is, even defending his uncleanliness in one strip
