“Peanuts” creator and cartoonist Charles M. Schultz and his daughter Jill appear on “People Are Talking,” a local San Francisco talk show, in spring 1984. People from the audience and the show co-hosts ask questions of Schulz and his daughter, who is a professional ice skater and aspiring actress. Schultz answers why Snoopy is a beagle and Linus plays Beethoven (and the answer may surprise you!), whether or not he is like Charlie Brown and much more. On January 3, 2000, the last original weekday Peanuts comic strip was published and the final Sunday strip was published on February 13, 2000. Peanuts was created by Schultz on October 2, 1950.
