“My strip is not like the kind that depends on variety or new characters. I’ve got pretty much the same characters and basic idea that I had so many years ago. I want to keep the strip simple. I like it, for example, when Charlie Brown watches the first leaf of fall float down and then walks over and just says, ‘Did you have a good summer?’ That’s the kind of strip that gives me pleasure to do.”

quoted in Barnaby Conrad’s Introduction, in Snoopy’s Guide to the Writing Life (Cincinnati, OH: Writer’s Digest Books, 2002), 22.
