介绍全世界其中一部极受赞扬的漫画

  几乎没有几部卡通能够和米老鼠一样长期名利双收,但查理‧布朗、他的狗史奴比和他那些格格不入的朋友无疑地让《花生》漫画获得很高的评价。这部有趣的四格漫画从 1950 年到 2000 年连载了将近五十年,这一万七千八百九十七回的漫画后来重新连载,至今仍在出版当中。《花生》漫画从头到尾都是由查尔斯.M.舒兹撰写及作画,其中有一些角色和场景是以他自己人生的一部份为灵感。


  查理.布朗和其他『花生帮』的成员不仅在北美洲,且在全世界都变得相当知名,《花生》漫画的读者遍及七十五个国家,被翻译成二十一种语言的版本。《花生》漫画的电视版本也大获成功,尤其是它每年推出的假日特别版,至今仍是全家人最爱看的节目之一。这部卡通还在《电视指南》所调查的有史以来最棒卡通排行榜中名列第四。这部卡通的特别版已得到了几个很有名望的奖项,其中包括四座艾美奖。


  《花生》漫画的其中一位主角史奴比是一只小猎犬,牠的生活过得很快乐,而且牠总是活在自己的幻想世界中。查理.布朗和史奴比的关系非常复杂,你有时候会搞不清楚到底是谁在发号施令。史奴比是一只偏好睡觉,并寻求省事方法的懒惰狗狗,这让努力想让自己的狗开心的查理.布朗很苦恼。史奴比从早期《花生》漫画中不讲话的角色,到后来有时候光芒会盖过查理.布朗而成了主角,牠无可争议地已成了全世界最为人所知的卡通角色之一。即使人们已没有新的《花生》漫画可以期待,但可预期的是这部留给后人的作品仍会持续好几个世代。
