1977 BBC Schulz Interview (Audio!)

“We must always remember that what I’m trying to do is just simply draw funny pictures.”

Peanuts lovers know that Charles Schulz’s funny pictures were far from simple. As almost every cartoonist will tell you, he was one of my biggest influences.

Here’s some wonderful audio of Schulz talking with BBC interviewer R. Morris about the origin of Snoopy, searching for ideas, and, oddly enough, Billie Jean King. Enjoy!
