Off the top of my head, I can definitely name the four main characters of The Peanuts series. Alright, there was Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Linus and Lucy. Although these characters made the TV show as memorable as it was, there were also other characters that contributed as well, but didn’t appear in every episode. Here is a list of the top ten character appearances from The Peanuts.
- Charlotte Braun
Charlotte was the female version of Charlie Brown, who, funny enough, looked just like him. She had hair though, and it was curly. She, too, was always being yelled at by her friends, all because she was known to be admittedly loud and obnoxious, Soon after she was introduced back in 1954, Charles Schulz, the Peanuts creator received a letter from Elizabeth Swain who was a young fan of the comic strip. She told him to get rid of Braun because she found the that the character was annoying and unfunny. Truly dedicated to his fans, Schulz wrote Swain a letter back (which is actually now in the Library of Congress) saying that he would “discard” Braun as requested, as soon as possible. Schulz had a rather dark sense of humor. That being said, he jokingly told young Elizabeth Swain that she would “have the death of an innocent child on your conscience. Are you prepared to accept such responsibility?” Next to his signature, Shulz included a rough sketch of Charlotte Braun with an ax stuck in her head. Braun showed in the comic one more time, after this- however she never returned.
