Peanuts (1976, 1980)
Synopsis of Lunch Box
Charles Schulz's comic strip about the trials and tribulations of a group of childhood friends has been a dominant force in the world of newspaper funny pages and animated holiday specials since the early 1950's. The Peanuts characters are well known to children and adults alike, and there have been several lunchboxes made to celebrate Charlie Brown, Snoopy and all of their friends. In 1976 and 1980, two variations on the Peanuts lunchbox (in red and yellow, respectively) were made by King Seeley. The metal boxes with matching plastic thermoses featured Charlie throwing a pitch on one side and Snoopy leading a troop of Woodstock and other birds on a hike. Both sides have dialogue panels from the comic strip.
