Charlie Brown is the principal character of the comic strip Peanuts , syndicated in daily and Sunday newspapers in numerous countries all over the world. Depicted as a " lovable loser ," Charlie Brown is one of the great American archetypes and a popular and widely recognized cartoon character. Charlie Brown is characterized as a person who frequently suffers, and as a result is usually nervous and lacks self-confidence. He shows both pessimistic and optimistic attitudes: on some days, he is reluctant to go out because his day might just be spoiled, but on others, he hopes for the best and tries as much as he can to accomplish things.
There's not much you can say about Charlie Brown's quest to kick a football that Peanuts creator Charles Schulz doesn't have Chuck himself proclaim over the course of nearly 50 football gag strips in nearly as many years. As he tries and fails repeatedly to kick a football at the mercy of Lucy and others! He projects the grandest of metaphors onto his plight, he cries out to a higher power for answers in vain - the agony even manifests as a kind of PTSD that leaves him unable to trust, nearly destroying one of the great romances of his life. It's simultaneously harrowing and hilarious. Shakespeare's ghost surely spent half a century taking notes.
The football gag is a joke that has been featured many times in Charles M. Schulz 's comic strip, Peanuts. There have been several variations on the joke over the years. The football gag has also been included in some Peanuts animated television specials.
