Charlie was first published February 1, 1969, founded by Delfeil de Ton who was its first editor-in-chief. Tagged "The newspaper full of humour and comic strips", it also adopted the slogan, "The newspaper one reads on the couch while munching chocolate". Its name was an homage to Charlie Brown, hero of comic strip "Peanuts", and a parallel to a contemporary Italian magazine, Linus.
Charlie Mensuel ceased publication for the first time in September 1981, but was purchased by Éditions Dargaud and reappeared in April 1982. On February 1, 1986, the final issue was published, and the magazine merged with Pilote. A new magazine began publication on March 1, under the name Pilote et Charlie, but this lasted only until the magazine reverted to Pilote on September 1, 1988.
