Good Grief ! Cartoonist Charles Schulz retires.

Schulz drew every Peanuts strip himself.

355 million readers will say goodbye to the Great Charles Schulz, the creator of the Peanuts cartoon strip which has appeared in news papers across the nation for the past thirty years.

January 3 will be the last daily cartoon, although one final new Sunday strip will appear on February 13. After that, reruns from the 1970s will begin.

But Schulz will not stop working. He plans to work on new TV specials and books.

You'll be our good man
orever Charlie Brown!
