L'il Folks was the weekly single panel cartoon Schulz did for his hometown paper. It's obviously a precursor to Peanuts. A few of the characters seem to be the same, or very similar, to the Peanuts characters. ... 27_2_l.jpg

That's very true, even Charlie Brown's name is mentioned in one. Precursor is absolutely correct.

But it's not the strip.
