Everyone is familiar with the iconic comic strip, “Peanuts” that follows the adventures of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, Lucy, and the whole gang. Its creator was the late Charles Schulz who wrote and illustrated the whole series for the 50 years it ran.
It now appears that the California wildfires that have threatened the lives and livelihood of so many, have spread to the doorstep of Charles Schulz’s home that he lived in for years and passed away in almost 20 years ago.
His son, Monte Schulz, recently confirmed that his father’s home and everything in it was wiped out by the wildfires that are currently ravaging parts of California. “It’s the house he died in. All of their memorabilia and everything is all gone,” Monte shared. Thankfully, his father’s widow, Jean Schulz, was able to escape before she lost everything in the fire.
Fortunately for fans and the family, most of the author and artist’s original work was on display at the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center. While the artwork at his home was lost, the research center survived, preserving most of Charles Schulz’s legacy.
