Lot Details
A Charles Schulz Peanuts daily
dated 1-16, 1986, pen and ink on illustration board, depicting Lucy who asks Linus What would happen if you and I never got married and left home? What if you and I had to live together for the rest of our lives? Linus' hair stands straight up and he responds Don't scare me like that...it's too hard on my hair!, matted and framed.

In only four frames, Schulz shows the love-hate relationship so common between brother and sister. Acccording to the book Peanuts, A Golden Celebration (The Art and the Story of the World's Best Loved Comic Strip) by Schulz, Schulz was at Art Instruction class when he first sketched Linus with his funny wild hair. He is the perfect foil for his fussbudget sister Lucy. Schulz wrote, "Readers are generally sympathetic toward a lead character who is rather gentle, sometimes put upon, and not always the brightest person. Perhaps this kind of person is easiest to love. He is the one who suffers because he is a caricature of the average person." Charlie Brown and Linus fit this mold.
