Peanuts® and Lucy Pulling the Football Away
For over 50 years, the fall season would be marked by the annual "pulling away of the football" by Lucy van Pelt against a befuddled Charlie Brown. Oddly enough, this perennial tradition actually began with the character Violet, not Lucy, as she holds the football for Charlie Brown's attempted kick in a November 14, 1951 comic. In this first iteration, Violet was simply afraid of getting kicked in the hand by Charlie and so pulled away at the last minute, leaving him to fall on his back. The first time Peanuts® fans see Lucy do this is in a November 16, 1952 strip where she initially pulls the ball away because it's her new football and she doesn't want it to get dirty. After Charlie's failed kick, she even lets him try again and keeps the ball down, but Charlie still manages to flub it anyway.
A possible motivation for Lucy's continuing to pull away the football seems to be explained by a strip on October 18, 1953 where she is the one attempting and failing a kick only to be mocked and ordered home by Charlie Brown who tells her that little girls don't belong on football fields, despite the fact that the ball was hers. From that moment, nearly every year in the fall would feature a comic strip where Lucy would pull the ball away at the last minute and taunt Charlie Brown. Charlie Brown knows that Lucy will pull the ball away and yet somehow she manages to convince him to try again and again. On one rare occasion she does promise to a sick Charlie Brown not to pull the football away if he gets better. She upholds this promise only to be kicked in the hand by a clumsy Charlie Brown who fails yet again. Despite this ongoing failure, Charlie Brown's repeated attempts are comical and yet also motivational as they embody the spirit of never giving up.
