Escabar_MimiThe “Peanuts” comic strip began on Oct. 2, 1950. Charles M. Schulz created the strip with the name “Li’l Folks” and when United Feature Syndicate bought the comic strip the name was changed to “Peanuts.” Over the years more characters were added and the strip became even more popular with television shows, stage productions, films, music and other products. Reprints of the strip are still syndicated and are read daily.
