I had to really reach back in the memory bank for this one!

I knew them all - but was definitely challenging and clever

Good puzzle, Jim! I raised my kids on the Peanuts cartoon books, the TV specials (and still watch them), the music from the specials, plus we have old lunch boxes and toys. Wish it would have been longer to include more of the "kids".

Really brutal puzzle there! I've been reading "Peanuts" all my life and know the characters pretty well, but these puzzles were incredibly tough. My hat's off to those who got this in fewer than 40 moves!

I still have some paperback collections of old Peanuts' strips. I really enjoyed this WP, thanks!

Brutal puzzle! Just no place to get a fingernail under that sucker! I read Peanuts all my life and didn't have a clue what the heck I was doing in there!

And I feel TWICE as stupid because our newest word puzzle star Wolfie860 did it twice as fast in half as many moves!

OUTSTANDING! (clapclapclap)

I knew who they all were I just couldn't remember what they do. Great puzzle.

I enjoyed this one even though I struggled some with it. I would be interested in seeing all the answers once it was over as I thought the ones that I had were clever and missed some of the characters. Sherry

Fun puzzle, Jim! Tough for sure, and entertaining as well. Good job!

I prefer the unsalted variety!

Very well done- a lot of big words, so a tough "Nut" to crack.

My set didn't include "one character" I was hoping. Guess?

Still- bravo!

"has affixed the dirt of uncounted ancient ages" (or whatever) was just too big a leap for me from that messy little boy with the untied shoelaces. I think I put all but one letter into that one. That x flat kicked my butt.

Was it "the soil of some great past civilization"? That's from *A Charlie Brown Christmas.* I'd have preferred it to my letter-killer, "parades in the rain with his zig zag trim" for Charlie Brown. I blew through at least ten letters on that one. I assume it's talking about the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Patade, although I can't think of the last time a character other than Snoopy or Woodstock was balloon-ified. Of course, I also assume "zigzag" is one word just because Merriam-Webster tell me it is. What do I know?

I liked my other puzzles, though: Peppermint Patty, Marcie, Franklin, and Woodstock.

Technically the term trim was incorrect, the zig zag on Charlie's shirt is part of the design of the fabric, trim in clothing is something added on, like applique. Picky bitch, I know. Sorry, having health problems & you messed with my beloved Peanuts. I'll forgive you when I'm feeling better, Jim

Thank you for all of the kind words. I think trim is wrong, as well, now that you mentioned it. Here are all of the pharases:

Allen’s Peanuts

Snoopy – Extroverted beagle and flying ace
Charlie Brown – Parades in the rain with his zig zag trim
Peppermint Patty – Chucks boisterous baseball superior
Marcie - Innocence with knowledgeable intelligence
Franklin – Centerfielder with no anxieties or obsessions
Linus – Van Pelt with a blanket and philosophical revelations
Woodstock – Confidant who uses birdspeak and exclamation points
Schroeder – Piano player who idolizes Beethoven
Pigpen – Has affixed the dirt of countless ages
Lucy – Fussbudget grouch who charges for advice
