As Peanuts reaches the mid-1980s, a period of Peanuts that is far less wellknown than the endlessly collected 1960s and 1970s eras, Snoopy's deadpan,droopy-mustached brother Spike takes center stage. In romantic news, thePeppermint Patty-Marcie-Charlie Brown love triangle of overlapping unrequitedlove heats up (well, kind of), while Linus continues to vociferously deny thathe is Sally's "Sweet Babboo"; of course, Lucy's unsuccessful pursuit ofSchroeder remains unabated. In what is probably his most baroque and hilariousbaseball-involved humiliation yet, Charlie Brown agrees to join PeppermintPatty's team the "Pelicans" only to discover that he's wanted not as a playerbut as a mascot. Linus gives up his security blanket and forms a support groupfor other kids who are trying to do the same, and Peppermint Patty manages to beheld back in school and go on a European trip with her dad, sending backperiodic dispatches from the road: all this plus appearances from Franklin,Rerun, and the rest of the gang.

Another outstanding compilation of two years worth of Peanuts cartoons by the late Charles Schulz. The characters still retain their freshness and depth, something he consistently managed to do throughout his career, something that is sorely lacking when you look at strips like Family Circus that should have been put out of their misery long ago.
