The Complete Peanuts: 1975-1978 (Hardcover)
ITEM#: 12672732The Complete Peanuts 1975-1976: Good grief, Charlie Brown, we're halfway there!Thats right! With this volume, The Complete Peanuts reaches the halfwaypoint of Charles M. Schulzs astounding half-century run on the greatestcomic strip of all time. These years are especially fecund in terms of new canine characters, as Snoopy is joined by his wandering brother Spike(from Needles), his beloved sister Belle (from Kansas City), and... did you know he had a nephew? In other beagle news,Snoopy breaks his foot and spends six weeks in a cast, deals with his friend Woodstocks case of the the vapors, and getsinvolved in a heated love triangle with Linus over the girl Truffles. The Complete Peanuts 1975-1976 features several other long stories, including a rare double track sequence with twoparallel narratives: Peppermint Patty and Snoopy travel to participate in the Powderpuff Derby, while Charlie Brown finallygets to meet his idol Joe Shlabotnik. And Peppermint Patty switches to a private school, but commits the mistake of allowingSnoopy to pick it for her; only after graduation does she realize somethings not quite right! Plus: A burglary at Peppermint Pattys house is exacerbated by waterbed problems... Marcie acquires an unwanted suitor...Charlie Brown and Peppermint Patty become desk partners... The talking school building collapses... Lots of tennis jokes...and gags starring Schroeder, Lucy, Franklin, Rerun, Sally, and that vicious cat next door. Its another two years of Peanuts at itsfinest! Featuring an introduction by comedian Robert Smigel (Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, Saturday Night Live).
The Complete Peanuts 1977-1978:As the 1970s wind down, the last two recurring Peanuts characters havefallen into place: Snoopys brother Spike and the youngest Van Pelt sibling,Rerun. But that doesnt mean Schulzs creativity has diminished; in fact, thisvolume features an amazing profusion of hilariously distinctive new one- (ortwo-) shot characters! For instance, in an epic five-week sequence, when Charlie Brown, foundguilty by the EPA of biting the Kite-Eating tree, he goes on the lam andends up coaching the Goose Eggs, a group of diminutive baseball players,Austin, Ruby, Leland, and did you know there was a second Black Peanutscharacter, aside from Franklin?Milo. Also: a tennis-playing Snoopy ends up reluctantly teamed with the extremeType A athlete Molly Volley... who then reappears later in the book, nowfacing off against her nemesis, Crybaby Boobie. (Honest!) Add in Sallysnew camp friend Eudora, the thuggish caddymaster who shoots downPeppermint Patty and Marcies new vocation, an entire hockey team, and asurprise repeat appearance by Linuss sweetheart Truffles (creating a lovetriangle with Sally), all in addition to the usual cast of beloved characters(including the talking schoolhouse and the doghouse-jigsawing cat, who getsahold of Linuss blanket in this one), and youve got a veritable crowd ofcharacters. Introduction by 30 Rock's Alec Baldwin.
Its another four years of the greatest comic strip of all time, full of laughsand surprises.
