An enduring love for Schroeder

| No Comments

There are few things in life I love as much as the Muppets.  Peanuts is one of them.

While I have fairly intense love for Snoopy (I've been told I dance just like him), I've always had a huge soft spot for Schroeder. I used to think I wanted a boyfriend just like him.

I just read this article describing an exhibit at the Charles M. Schulz museum which analyzes the music featured in Peanuts strips, giving a whole new dimension of brilliance and fantastically nerdy awesomeness to Schroeder and the subtexts Schulz gave him. I enjoyed reading about Schulz's own music obsession, and it made me remember just why I adore his strip and his characters so much.

Whenever I talk to people about how much I love cartoons and comics, I feel like I have to defend myself, but I'm done with that. I think I'm finally at a point in my life where I can admit that most of my life philosophy has been gleaned from Kermit the Frog, and I thinkPeanuts is damn fine culture.

(And if you know any cute single guys like Schroeder, I wouldn't mind being set up with them... just saying.)
