In The Complete Peanuts 1967-1968: As we rush toward the end of Peanuts' second full decade,Snoopy finds himself almost completely engrossed in his persona as theWorld War I Flying Ace — to the point where he goes to camp withCharlie Brown and maintains his persona throughout the entire two-weekperiod (much to Peppermint Patty's bafflement). Still, Snoopy looms large, so this volume (a particularlySnoopy-heavy one) sees him arm-wrestling Lucy as the "Masked Marvel"and then taking off for Petaluma for the national arm-wrestlingchampionship; impersonating a vulture and a "Cheshire Beagle"; enjoyinggolf and hockey; attempting a jaunt to France for an ice-skatingchampionship; running for office on the "Paw" ticket; being traded toPeppermint Patty's baseball team, then un-traded and installed as teammanager by a guilt-ridden Charlie Brown; as well as dealing with thereturn of his original owner, Lila. If you're surprised by that lastone, imagine how Charlie Brown feels... Lila makes only a brief appearance (as does Jose Peterson, ashort-lived — and short — star member of Charlie Brown's baseballteam), but this volume sees the appearance of what would be Schulz'smost controversial major character: Franklin. (Yes, in 1968 theintroduction of a Black character caused a stir.) Peppermint Patty, working toward her ascendancy as one of the major Peanutsplayers in the 1970s and 1980s, also has several major turns, includinga storyline in which she’s the tent monitor for three little girls (whocall her "Sir" — a joke Schulz would pick up later with PeppermintPatty's friend Marcie). Stories involving other characters include a sequence in whichLinus's flippant comment to his Gramma that he'll kick his blankethabit when she kicks her smoking habit backfires; Lucy bullies Linus,pesters Schroeder, and organizes a "crab-in"; plus Charlie Brown copeswith Valentine's Day depression, the Little Red-Haired Girl, theincreasingly malevolent kit...
