A classic tale of an underdog story, this comic strip franchise was written and animated by Charles M. Schulz beginning in 1947 and continuing until 2000! This strip has remained a staple in classic animated films with its affable characters, including Linus van Pelt. Linus is the most insecure yet the smartest of the bunch. An intellectual and a philosopher, Linus is the younger brother of Lucy. Linus, Charlie's blanket-toting best friend, is shown on this coin.
These characters soared in popularity along with the strip as television specials, including "A Charlie Brown Christmas" and "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" were intertwined with family traditions during the holidays. Additionally, the stage musical "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" has been a successful and popular production that still plays today.
This set transcends generational boundaries with its timeless stories that every child can relate to. The new movie is expected to be a hit as it will introduce these characters to an entire generation.
