Lot #10: Charles Schulz Original Hand-Drawn ''Peanuts'' Comic Strip From January 1953 -- In this Early Strip, Linus & Snoopy Battle Over the TV & Linus Is Shown Without His Blanket


Charles Schulz original hand-drawn ''Peanuts'' comic strip, published 24 January 1953. Having debuted as a character in September 1952, this is one of Linus Van Pelt's earliest appearances, even shown without his signature blanket, which wouldn't debut until 1954. Although Linus was also non-verbal until 1954, he does make a ''MEOW!'' sound here to get Snoopy to move out of his way so he can watch TV. Strip measures 28.75'' x 6.5''. Some light foxing and discoloration, and very faint tracing in pencil over parts of Snoopy. Overall very good condition.
