Hey Peanuts Author:Charles M Schulz Which one is the real Charlie Schulz? — To tell the truth we're not sure. Some people say that cartoonists always draw themselves, and it is true that Charlie Brown--the round-headed little boy who heads up the Peanuts cast--is in many ways only a younger version of his creator. — Although big Charlie was once elected "Cartoonist of the Year" by t... more »he National Cartoonists Society, he never won so much as a vote of confidence during his early years. Schulz was, according to his biographers, much like Charlie Brown, the only kid in the world who lost 10,000 checkers games in a row. But also like his pen and ink alter ego, he never admitted defeat.
Now, as the proud father of those lovable, irresistible, totally unpredictable brainchildren known as the Peanuts bunch, Charlie Schulz has proved himself a regular genius. He has not only sketched his way to fame and fortune, but has the counterpart of the Peanuts gang in his own real life in California where he resides happily with his wife, five children and an assortment of livestock ranging from horses to rabbits.
