It is interesting to look at the strip at gocomics.com. Right now, the regular Peanuts entry shows strips from cirka 1970. At the same time, there is the “Peanuts Begins” entry which shows strips from the first years, 1951-1952.I don’t think it’s fair to say that it went all downhill, but it sure is an entirely different strip.

Early Charlie Brown is wonderful and sometimes quite dark and definitely not what it was later on. I actually fell in love with the strip again when I finally got to read the early ones.

On the other hand, the strip for May 2nd, 1958, is a bit too accurate for comfort…

Early Charlie Brown was kinda dark.
