Summary: cartoonist who created the "Peanuts" comic strip and drew more than 18,250 "Peanuts" comic strips in a career that spanned nearly 50 years, which expressed a droll philosophy through its precocious children, but whose trademark characters included the hapless, angst-ridden Charlie Brown; Snoopy, a romantic, self-deluded beagle; piano-playing Schroeder; insecure Linus; and self-centered Lucy.
