Yes, I guess so.
In Panel 4, no less.
In fact, this year’s Peanuts desk calendar even has the beginning of this serial(during the week between Christmas and New Year’s), starting with Snoopy and Woodstock seeing the “strange light in the sky” and hiding under a blanket.(2023). As I’ve said, the Peanuts desk calendars seem to be following this pattern, containing the (daily) strips from 50 years ago according to the year in question. (This year’s desk calendar, 2023, contains those daily strips from 1973, for example.) Thus next year’s will likely contain those from 1974, beginning with the “conclusion” of the Kohoutek serial. They skip the Sunday strips for the obvious reasons.
I don’t remember it at all; I was only 4 years old. Next December will mark the 50th anniversary of Kohoutek; maybe it’ll be mentioned in the news then, so as to commemorate the milestone anniversary of that rather “scary” event.
Sounds like Lucy’s tears make the grass as green as the fields and trees in Ireland. Ha, ha.
His pose or position here was then borrowed in one of those Peanuts books demonstrating that a bull is color blind and thus he cannot see the red color of the cape in a bullfight(it’s really the rapid movement of the cape that gets him all fired up). Anyway, this position of Snoopy here charging the mailbox and destroying it was borrowed into this demonstration, where he was depicted as the charging bull(and Linus as the matador, even wearing the traditional matadors cap), Snoopy says “I hate playing the bull!” as Linus waves the red cape.
Trivia: This is 50 years to the exact day when this strip was published-Saturday, 5/6/2023. How quickly time flies, even 50 years.
Either that or they’re “psychic,” as would be the case in Panels 10 and 11, as Snoopy spies the PS note and reads it. Ha ha.
I’ll say they don’t seem to be very close-knit.
Did they even have monitor cameras in 1973?
Yes, I guess so.
