Original art. Charles Schulz, creator of the beloved "Peanuts" cartoon strip, first introduced his "Peanuts" phenomenon in syndication in 1950. The strip is now considered the most successful to have ever appeared in print. What makes the strip unique and endearing are the many personas and sequences Schulz developed for the loveable gang, none more popular Than The Red Baron! The Flying Ace made his debut in Peanuts on October 10, 1965, and quickly became one of Snoopy’s best loved personas. Offered here is a very important Sunday example, dated 7/10/1966 less than one year after the first appearance of the Red Baron, featuring Snoopy as the Red Baron, and Charlie Brown in every panel. The Schulz museum has confirmed that this is the 6th Red Baron Sunday. This Sunday bears the following inscription "To Lucille Lyons and all our friends in the Fourth Grade- Charles Schulz".
Of Special significance, is the letter that accompanies this art, written in response to a request from his former teacher. The hand written letter from Schulz to his former fourth grade teacher in which he reminices about grade school and the origins of some his most important story-lines: "The memories will always remain because I lived directly across from the school for many years, and the school yard was our baseball diamond, our football field and even The Sahara Desert when we pretended we were part of the British Lost Patrol."
Art and letter are in overall Very Fine condition, the art measures 15.25" x 22.5".
