Family Charlie Brown (brother)

Sally Brown is the younger sister of Charlie Brown in the comic strip Peanuts by Charles Schulz. She was first mentioned in early 1959 and throughout a long series of strips before her first appearance in August 1959. Kathy Steinberg was the first to voice Sally in 1965.[1] born May 26, 1959

Background[edit]

Sally's birth took place on the strip May 26, 1959, but her name was not mentioned until June 2 and she did not actually appear until the August 23 strip. Sally was gradually aged up through the next three years, going from an infant to a toddler and finally began attending kindergarten in the September 5, 1962, strip. By 1963, she became a 1st or 2nd grader and remained this way for the rest of the strip's run.

Character Profile[edit]

Sally's principal character trait is her laziness. She enjoys spending the afternoon sitting in a beanbag watching TV and eating snacks. In a 1982 story, Sally goes off to "beanbag camp" for the summer and ends up coming home severely overweight. Because of this attitude, she is also a poor student at school and has a habit of making hilarious blunders on tests and book reports. In one strip, Sally states that she would like to become a nurse when she grows up because "you get to wear white shoes." She often confides all her personal problems to the school building, which "talks" to and comforts her, in addition to dropping bricks on kids who call her names. Sally also has a habit of attempting to commandeer Charlie Brown's bedroom for herself, and in one strip she actually moved all her belongings into it while her brother was away at camp. Except for a very few occasions, she always refers to him as simply "Big Brother" and never by his actual name. Charlie Brown habitually offers Sally advice on schoolwork or personal problems, but his words end up going over her head and she ends up putting him at fault for her failures.

Her other major character trait is her obsessive crush on Linus, whom she refers to as "My Sweet Baboo." Linus for the most part is dismissive of Sally and usually attempts to fend her off with a deadpan remark, with only a few occasions when he loses his temper.
