USPS Celebrates Charles M. Schulz's with Peanuts stamps

The United States Postal Service is celebrating the 100th birthday of artist and “Peanuts” creator Charles M. Schulz.

In a commemorative mode, characters from his beloved comic strip “Peanuts” adorn the 10 designs on this pane of 20 stamps. They are Charlie Brown, Lucy, Franklin, Sally, Pigpen, Linus, Snoopy (with Woodstock), Schroeder, Peppermint Patty, and Marcie.

Debuting in 1950, “Peanuts” garnered hundreds of millions of readers worldwide. Its original cast included Charlie Brown and Snoopy, soon joined by Lucy, Linus and others. Each character reflects Schulz’s rich imagination and great humanity. Charlie Brown, at the heart of “Peanuts,” is often defeated but always resilient. Schulz’s resonant stories found humor in life’s painful realities including rejection, insecurity and unrequited love.

In the 1960s, “Peanuts” became a worldwide phenomenon with beloved television specials, books, a Broadway show and countless products. For five decades, Schulz steadfastly wrote, drew, inked and lettered every “Peanuts” strip — nearly 18,000 of them — the last one published the day after he died.
