Startng on January 31,we get 3 days worth of strips, showing how Sally gave Woodstock instructions to bring Linus back, before the little bird took off in Snoopy, on his rescue mission. However, Linus is then airlifted away from the farm, and Truffles.
I kind of wonder what people at the time thought of it see below. The final strips returned Linus to the Peanuts neighborhood. However, when he realizes just where his pilot is going to drop him, he pleads for Woodstock to stop. But as in most cases, money talks. There were no further attempts by Linus to locate her or vice-versaand one can assume that Linus probably has her buried deep within him, a symbol of a lost love from his youth I think many us have several of those.
However, when it comes to some Peanuts comic strips, the story arcs did find a second life in the world of animation. Though in a strange way for the strips involving Linus and Truffles, they were presented out of context. The first appearance of Truffles in animated form, was the hour-long television special, A Charlie Brown Celebration.
The opening of the show had an introduction by Schulz himself, before delving into smaller episodes, and simpler vignettes. One of the episodes told, was the second appearance of Truffles. This was a rather shocking continuity issue, as those seeing the episode for the first time had almost no back story as to whom Truffles was, and she and Linus were being very expressive towards each other.
He ended up winning anyway by one vote, cast by his opponent, who decided that Linus would make a better school president. A similar occurrence was featured in a strip with the same storyline; Charlie Brown asks him why he had to bring up the Great Pumpkin and Linus gives his reasons.
After Linus says that Charlie Brown is looking at him as if he was crazy, Charlie Brown responds, "I'm looking at you like I could've been vice president! He holds it over his shoulder while sucking his thumb. Ridicule of the habit is not a major concern for him. His friend Roy warned him at summer camp that he would be viciously teased for it; in response, Linus used his blanket like a whip and sheared off a tree branch with intimidating power, saying, "They never tease me more than once.
In a strip, it engaged in a campaign of clandestine attacks on Lucy, even routing her from the house, due to her constant, albeit failed, attempts to get rid of it by throwing it in the trash burner. In the special A Boy Named Charlie Brownit performed a complex dance routine with Linus upon being reunited with its owner.
Linus had lost the blanket, causing him depression, panic attacks, sweating and other withdrawal symptoms. In the earlier strips, Linus's relationship to his blanket was one of intense emotional attachment to the point of manifesting physical symptoms if he was deprived of it even for a short while. He suffered weakness and dizziness, for example, when Lucy took it from him only long enough to have it laundered, spontaneously recovering when it was restored to him.
On another occasion, Lucy snatched his blanket away and buried it in an effort to break Linus of his habit.

Linus literally dug up the neighborhood for days trying to find it until Snoopy finally dug it up. Possession of the blanket is often sought by Snoopywho has used many tricks and subterfuges to relieve Linus of it, even at one point having the blanket delivered to his doghouse. Snoopy commonly runs up, quickly grabs the blanket in his mouth, and drags Linus along with it, then swings him and the blanket around before letting go and sending them both soaring off.
Once, Linus was so angry at Snoopy for snatching his blanket again and again that he retaliated by threatening Snoopy's supper dish. Upon hearing that Linus had possession of his most prized possession, Snoopy gave Linus back the blanket fairly quickly, thinking, "I never dreamed he would fight so dirty!
When Lucy buried the blanket, Snoopy took the time to dig for it himself; and when he found it, Linus thanked him, upon which Snoopy thought, "Every now and then I feel that my existence is justified!
In one strip, Lucy confiscates Linus's blanket, locking it in a closet for two weeks as part of a bet. Linus thinks he can go without the blanket for two weeks and laughs off Lucy and Charlie Brown's differing opinion. After one week Linus begins suffering, and freezing without it; he tries to use Snoopy's floppy ears but Lucy notices and tells him "no substitutes!
Finally it appears that Linus has lost his mind; Charlie Brown persuades Lucy to give Linus his blanket back when they see Linus lying on the closet door scratching at it in a vain attempt to open it. Furthermore, there are many stories where Lucy and Linus's grandmother attempts to force him to give up the blanket, only to eventually concede in the face of his steadfast resistance. Unfortunately, her lack of aptitude for formal education quickly became apparent, as she nervously admitted in a later strip that she was sure they had made her go through kindergarten again because she had failed flower-bringing.
Nevertheless, she did eventually complete kindergarten and settled in at about first or second grade age for the remainder of the strip's run.

It was originally Linus who expressed a possible romantic interest in Sally. In a strip appearing shortly after Sally's birth, Linus is seen scribbling calculations on a fence. In a storyline which began on November 29,Sally was diagnosed with amblyopia ex anopisa lazy eye which required her to wear an eye patch for a while.
Her eye patch often went missing because Snoopy took it, pretending to be a pirate. Sally gave Snoopy the eye patch after her ophthalmologist told her that she did not need to wear it anymore. Some of the strips in which Sally was diagnosed with lazy eye were later reprinted in a comic book, Security is an Eye Patch, which was published and distributed for free by the U.

Sally first met her during a trip to summer camp in She became a pupil in Sally's class later that year and was Sally's closest friend for most of her run in Peanuts. In the later years of the strip, Sally started developing " Philosophies " on life.Weber's Bread Featuring Charlie Brown,Sally,and Linus
They were not the most well thought out philosophies, basically being phrases such as, "Who cares? Charlie Brown doted on her in the beginning, and was usually very patient with her.
Yet Sally has never developed proper respect for her big brother, and invariably ends up disappointed in him when he fails to protect her from being teased or threatened by bullies.
However, Sally constantly relies on Charlie Brown to help her with her homework, which usually results in his doing her assignments for her. Sally often annoys Charlie Brown and regularly complains to him.
She obviously thinks that Charlie Brown has a better bedroom than she does because she often tries to take it over from him. However, deep down Sally loves her big brother.

Sally usually complains when her big brother asks her to feed Snoopy whenever he is away from home. When she was still an infant, Sally had a friendly and playful relationship with Snoopy.
In one comic strip, dated August 30,Snoopy is shown happily playing with Sally, then stating that he liked playing with her and felt that they had something in common because, "She's the only one around here who knows how to walk on four feet.
During this time period, Snoopy and Sally were also seen teaming up to snatch away Linus' blanket. In later years, Sally occasionally enlists Snoopy's help in school assignments — she even treated him to an ice cream cone a very tall ice cream cone, with scoops of about a dozen flavors when Snoopy helped her get an "A" on a report about "Our Animal Friends.
