I was surprised that in my online wanderings recently to see that Tertullian's name came up here instead of somewhere else. english_si is moving up the charts on my favourite poster's list.

I've never even heard of Snoopy's Christmas.  It must be pretty obnoxious to top that list, though.
Don’t ever disrespect the peanuts!!! All classics with good stories. charles would be rolling in his grave, if he heard you say that.

Peanuts was good for its time but the fact that it's still being rerun on comics pages keeps another currently-produced strip from getting the exposure they need. There's only so much room on the comics page.
I think you're overstating the number of comics in existence that are milquetoast enough to replace Peanuts in the comic section of major newspapers without generating complaints about a) the removal of Peanuts and/or b) the comic that would take its place.

Newspapers will occasionally change the comics they publish &/or shrink them to fit more on a page. But with on-line comic publishers like Go Comics, there is practically no limit. In addition to "Classic" Peanuts, there is "Peanuts Begins".

Speaking of Peanuts I just heard the Royal Guardsmen singing a song about Snoopy verses the Red Baron.

If I may, I'm going to share this with my fellow Midwesterners:

None of the above. We had Fannie May candy and Lenell cookies.
