Charles Schulz

The last strip ever run in Charles Schulz's comic strip 'Peanuts.' The strip ran on 12 March 2000 -- coincidentally, the day after Schulz died of colon cancer. Schulz's strip has continued to be published in reruns in thousands of papers; United Feature Syndicate said in 2009 that the number of papers was close to 2600.
