All the loves in Shulz’s Peanuts strips are unrequited. His long-running story of Charlie Brown’s admiration for the Little Red-Haired Girl a reflection of his own rejection of a marriage proposal to the real-life Little Red-Haired Girl Donna Mae Johnson. For Schulz the idea that the greatest happiness was to be found in the simple sense of connection to others, in the strip itself the experience of happiness was a much more complex and elusive thing.
