Even though the strips stopped in 2000 after the creator Charles M. Schulz passed away, it is still a part of the remarkable American un-success story and shares life lessons in the most innocent ways.

Charlie Brown was supposed to be this meek, innocent boy with many anxieties but with a heart in the right place. He is an antithesis to the go-getter, living the American dream story, which we all are aware of.

Charlie Brown would say the catchphrase, “good grief” whenever anything goes wrong in his life. He was not a popular kid, nor the smart one—just an average kid who entertained us every Sunday from 1952 to 2000. The comic strip first appeared in the Charlie M. Schulz hometown newspaper, the St. Paul Pioneer Press, and went on to gain national and international fame. There are movies, television specials, and merchandise with the various characters from 'The Peanuts' comic strip.

Charlie Brown and his friend have made an appearance in various sports-related activities, like kite-flying and baseball. Snoopy is Charlie Brown's pet dog, who also became popular. Together they share life lessons regarding human nature and show us the simplicities of life.
