This is great. Usually Marcie doesn’t buy into the fantasies.
Does this mean that the Peanuts gang is from Riverside, California? Nice to see the weekly storyline continuing on a Sunday for once.
I love reading the comics, everything is possible, (most) everyone is capable and tomorrow is a new edition (although Peanuts is old new editions but you get where i amgoing with that…right?)
I don’t remember any other case where the Sunday strip tied directly in with the storyline from the weekdays.
Riverside to Tulsa via El Paso? El Paso is WAY out of the way between the other two points.
“And I woke up high over Albuquerque on a jet to the promised land.” (The King)
Just needed a little altitude adjustment.
Anyone who understands airplanes & women isn’t just a good mechanic … they are a genius on the level of Elon Musk …
Happiness is a trip in your imagination.
“You ask how I know of Toledo, Ohio? Well I spent a week there one day.” John Denver lyrics
They went from Phoenix, Arizona, all the way to Tacoma, Philadelphia, Atlanta, L.A……
Marcie’s reading off the list of cities reminded me of Johnny Cash’s “I’ve Been Everywhere”…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNj6spCtUE0
What a clumsy exposition dump in panel 3. What can you do. Gotta get the story done.
At least Marcie appreciates a dog’s kiss, unlike Lucy.
I am thoroughly enjoying this sequence. The intersection of the power of girls with the power of imagination is wonderful.
Peanuts was the first strip I ever read… it was an excerpt from “Good Ol’ Charlie Brown” in a Reader’s Digest collection. It guess I can trace my love of comics from there to here, today.
Snoopy must be as fast as the Flash to keep up with them on the ground like that.
It’s would’ve been quite odd if snoopy kissed the house and kicked Marcie
Toledo? I don’t believe it exists.
One of the few arcs carried into Sunday? Thus the extra exposition?
Sparky must’ve planned this for awhile. Peanuts stories don’t usually carry over into Sundays.
I think Charles Schulz is the one who has the imagination and not the two girls or Snoopy. He could do what a lot of us wanted to do when we were younger. Draw comic strips by hand and create story lines and make people laugh. Unless you read Mary Worth, Rex Morgan, Judge Parker, Gil Thorp etc.
There was a long period of time where newspapers removed the second panel of every Sunday strip and rearranged the rest into a portrait mode. They printed this chopped up version for the sake of spacing, instead of how it was drawn in a landscape mode. Look at the original date for this strip, if you’re not sure what I mean – July 6, 1975.
My point is, if the original unedited version is available, why do we have to endure what is a form of censoring, and look at the this chopped up strip every Sunday?
It’s a rare storyline that continues through a Sunday.
The Powder Puff Derby was the name given to an annual transcontinental air race for women pilots inaugurated in 1947. For the next two years it was named the “Jacqueline Cochran All-Woman Transcontinental Air Race” (AWTAR). It was dubbed the “Powder Puff Derby” in reference to the 1929 Women’s Air Derby by humorist and aviation advocate Will Rogers.
In 1977, rising costs, insurance premiums, and diminished corporate sponsorship saw the competition come to an end after thirty years. After the commemorative final flight, the Air Race Classic continued the tradition for women pilots.
This segment would be better with some actual background while they are flying: ground below, birds other planes. The Red Baron trying to shoot them down.
And when a good mechanic is female? Shape up, Patty – don’t talk like a guy!
That’s what I’ve been doing wrong all these years… kick the engine, kiss the girl.
Uh, Toledo is a bit out of the way, actually.
Don’t you just love Snoopy’s ear up like that? Great visual.
One of the rare instances where the Sunday strip follows the Mon.-Sat. continuity.
The imaginations are running high in altitude.
They should be going to Oshkosh, Wisc. for the EAA Fly-in. ‘Course, that’s in late July, but maybe they’ll get there.
