You’re a Good Man, Charles Schulz!

Charles Shultz and Peanuts

Let’s be real. Everyone loves Snoopy. He’s an American icon. Heck, he even has his own balloon in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. And don’t forget his owner, the clueless, yet loveable Charlie Brown! Where would we be without the poster child of continuous determination?

Well, now, The Peanuts is not only hitting the big screen, but creator, Charles Schutz’s phenomenal work is now being displayed in an exhibit at the German American Heritage Center in downtown Davenport, IA.

Not only does the exhibit consist of multiple selections that Schulz created over his years as a cartoonist, but it also includes Lucy’s famous “psychiatrist office” and that famous piano Lucy draped herself over to get Schroeder to notice her as more than just that bossy dark-haired girl. The exhibition is child-friendly and includes color sheets for children to decorate their own Peanuts comic strips.

So, this weekend take the family over to enjoy this little gem. The German American Heritage Center is located at 712 West 2nd Street in Davenport and opened Tuesday through Saturday from 10 AM to 4 PM. It is also open Sunday from 12 PM to 4 PM. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for children. The Schulz exhibit runs until October 25th.
