In 2000, In his last daily “Peanuts” comic strip after a 50-year career, Charles M. Schulz bids a fond farewell to the millions of fans who have made Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the gang among the most beloved cartoon figures in the world. The cartoon, depicting Snoopy pondering the typewriter atop his doghouse, was published like this: “I have been fortunate to draw Charlie Brown and his friends for almost 50 years. It has been the fulfillment of my childhood ambition,” Schulz writes in his farewell note, which takes up the entire panel. Schulz, 77, announced last month that he would stop drawing “Peanuts” this year in order to concentrate on treating a newly-diagnosed case of colon cancer. The cartoon, which first appeared on October 2, 1950, is now published in more than 2,600 newspapers around the world, reaching 355 million readers in 75 countries and 21 languages. Schultz died in February 2000.

In 2000, on Port Charles, Scott and Lucy agreed to postpone their wedding.

In 2000, Snoopy, perched on his doghouse in front of his typewriter, looks over a farewell message from creator Charles Schulz in the last new daily “Peanuts” strip, running in newspapers. Schulz, 77, who has written, drawn, colored and lettered every “Peanuts” strip for almost 50 years, decided to retire after being diagnosed with colon cancer in November. His contract stipulates no one else will ever draw the comic strip. The single-panel farewell strip is primarily a text message, over Schulzʹs signature, with the Snoopy drawing in the lower right corner. “Dear Friends,” Schulz writes. “I have been fortunate to draw Charlie Brown and his friends for almost 50 years. It has been the fulfillment of my childhood ambition. Unfortunately, I am no longer able to maintain the schedule demanded by a daily comic strip, therefore I am announcing my retirement.”

In 2000, “AACK! I canʹt stand it!” Cathy shouts Monday as she reads the last new daily “Peanuts” strip. In “Doonesbury,” a drug-addled Zonker in a Charlie Brown-style zigzag shirt stretches out on Snoopyʹs doghouse. Comic strip artists, political cartoonists and newspapers paid tribute the best way they knew how to a cancer-stricken Charles Schulz, whose last new daily “Peanuts” strip ran on Monday. Many of the 2,600 newspapers that carry “Peanuts” ran the farewell strip on their front page. “Cathy” artist Cathy Guisewite and “Doonesbury” creator Garry Trudeau inserted “Peanuts” in their comic strips. Jason, a character in the strip “Foxtrot,” appeared as Pigpen. The characters in “Jump Start” mentioned Schulz and Charlie Brown. Kirk Anderson of the Saint Paul (Minn.) Pioneer Press, drew a picture of Snoopy typing a story: “A shy local boy puts pen to paper, not knowing he will become the most successful and beloved cartoonist of all time. He raises the cartoon to high art; brings psychology, philosophy and theology into the comics; changes pop culture forever, gives the world characters as allegorical as Shakespeareʹs…” “I hope this has a happy ending!” Snoopy then thinks, his mouth a worried squiggle. Similarly poignant farewells have come from all corners of the globe for Schulz, 77, who is undergoing chemotherapy for colon cancer diagnosed in November. He alone wrote, drew, colored and lettered “Peanuts” for nearly 50 years.
