Description


Amazing original hand-inked 11-panel Peanuts Sunday comic strip, dated December 6, 1964, on a 23 x 15.75 piece of artist’s cardstock. Strip depicts Frieda sending Snoopy out on a rabbit hunt, with Snoopy having an amicable visit with his supposed rabbit “enemies.” Upon meeting back up with Frieda, she reports to Charlie Brown that they saw no rabbits, with Snoopy giving a sly wink to Charlie at the end of the strip. Signed vertically in black ink in the last panel, “Schulz.” The third panel has an insert which shows Snoopy embracing two rabbits, with “Happiness is loving your enemies” penned underneath. This same image was used in a sequence from the animated television special, It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown. This particular strip provides brilliant abstraction of the trouble brewing in the larger world in 1964. Brilliant strips like this transcend the funny pages, and Peanuts included many such moments. Scattered toning to pasted on title piece (not uncommon to strips of this era), and a few scattered spots, mostly confined to the background of two right panels, otherwise fine condition. An incredibly desirable strip which offers a complete package of a Sunday strip from Schulz’s creative peak, a famous panel featuring one of the first “Happiness is…” quotes, great dancing Snoopy images, and a classic Snoopy/Charlie Brown gag at the conclusion places this strip in the upper echelon of Schulz’s work. R&R COA.
