Addendum 2: Saturday night, Spooky and I watched Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown, which first aired December 9th, 1965. I don't think either of us had seen it since we were kids. It was actually sort of refreshingly placid. Very funny, but very quiet. I can't imagine it holding the attention of children these days, but I don't have children and could be wrong. Looking at it post-South Park, it seemed to have an innocence I think childhood's losing. Or maybe I'm full of dren. Anyway, Peanuts was the first comic strip that caught my eye as a kid. Later, I moved along to Bloom County, and that was pretty much it for me and the funny pages.
