I'm Jean Schulz. My husband drew the PEANUTS comic strip for 50 years and I'm happy to talk with you and take your questions.
Hello reddit! I'm the president of the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, California (http://schulzmuseum.org/) which opened in 2002 and we've received visitors from all over the world. Talking with them is one of the happiest aspects of my life.
Museum visitors tell me about their connections with the Peanuts characters and what they meant to them all of their lives, and I enjoy sharing with them comments about the characters and about living with Charles Schulz for 26 years. I'm here to do the same with all of you on reddit, and Victoria from reddit is helping me.
This has been so much fun for me because the questions have been REALLY interesting and the comments are heartwarming! The questions have made me think and search around some good answers for people. We believe that Sparky's spirit is in the museum, so all of you lovely fans, I do hope you come to the museum. You can always ask if I'm around! I'm often there hiding upstairs in my office.
Thank you, this has been fun. I would enjoy doing it again.
