Part II: Charlie Brown - The Everyman
THE PEANUTS GANG | FreedomProject Media
Published: May 9, 2017
We focus exclusively on Charlie Brown, the strip’s “everyman,” the long-suffering, lovable loser with a heart of gold and the resilience of Job. Always the straight man, never the winning pitcher, perpetually unable to kick that football, the recipient of no valentines, and the patient victim of unrequited love for the little red-haired girl, Good Ol’ Charlie Brown is always ready with a crooked smile to mask his broken heart, and the eternal optimism that comes from faith in things and ideas bigger than himself.
