That may be gibberish to some, but to me, it was the dewey-decimal system location of the Peanuts strips in my Elementary school library. I really gained my love of Peanuts from those library-bound books, but always remembered coming back to 'The Peanuts Jubilee,' which was (at the time) the only way to find insight into the earlier strips. With Fantagraphic Books, we've been able to see what many of those early years were like. With the latest volume, we've moved into familiar territory with some of the more familiar characters and stories.
In this volume, a number of revelations come about:
-Lucy goes to extreme measures and throws Schroeder's piano to the kite-eating tree.
-Snoopy befriends one of the many birds that hangs around his doghouse, and the friendship with Woodstock is born.
-The Little Red-Haired Girl moves out of the neighborhood.
-The Head-Beagle appears(in name only). Soon after his 'appearance,' Snoopy is promoted to the role...and finds out how hard a job it is.
-Snoopy becomes the first beagle on the moon.
Some of the comics in this collection have been seen in some previous collections, but most cut out some of the key bits. One example was a previous Peanuts collection that showed the aftermath of the Little Red-Haired Girl moving away, but not what came before.
One note to make is that there appear to be two different versions of this volume. If you purchase the volume as a single book, it includes a 3-panel strip that was not included in the previous volume. The version that comes in the 2-book set (The Complete Peanuts 1967-1970) does not have the missing strip.
The 1967-1968 set was quite familiar to me, but 1969-1970 wasn't. Clearly, the first two years were well represented in the Treasuries I used to get from my library.
Definitely buying more, as I only have 1950-1952.
One of my favorite strips ever.
If you enjoy the Peanuts and want to collect the series, this is the best way to do it. The quality of this publication is excellent and the slipcase is a great addition.
Thank you Amazon for providing this set at a great low price!
