I read some quote (to lazy to find it) in an article today that said Bil Keane realized when he published a strip (can you call a one panel comic a strip? but Jude digresses...) where Jeffy says to his parents something about needing a hug and he got more mail about that then when he published the "funny". So, he goes on to say that he realized that his comic wasn't really about the funny, but the relating. So, there's that.
I remember as a kid that I loved the ones where he would track the kid's path through the yard, the neighbors, the house, whatev after mom asked the kid to take out the garbage or whatever. Totally loved those!
ETA: And TEAM DJ... i loved Peanuts. Especially when the holiday specials were on TV. We got to eat in the living room, in front of the TV, on TV trays!
