    "Lucy comes from that part of me that’s capable of saying mean and sarcastic things, which is not a good trait to have, so Lucy gives me a good outlet." - Charles M. Schulz himself

    Lucille "Lucy" Van Pelt is a fictional character in the syndicated comic strip Peanuts, written and drawn by the late Charles Schulz. She is the older sister of Linus and Rerun. Lucy is characterized as a "fussbudget", crabby, bossy, and opinionated girl who bullies most other characters in the strip, particularly Linus and Charlie Brown.

    Blockhead Qualities

    1. For starters, she's really selfish and mean to Charlie Brown and her younger brother Linus.
      • In addition to Charlie Brown and Linus, she's also selfish to Snoopy as she calls him a "dumb beagle".
    2. The football gag where she pulls the football away before Charlie Brown can kick it, while hilarious and iconic, is mean-spirited at times.
    3. She's just a typical mean girl stereotype.
      • Perhaps the worst example of her being mean spirited is in the 1977 special "It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown", where she outright calls out Charlie for missing the kicks she was holding, even though she was pulling the football away from him, causing him to miss the football and land flat on his back, thus making her a hypocrite. Worst of all, Peppermint Patty believes in her, and they, along with Frieda, laugh at him at the homecoming dance.
      • Another good example that she is very mean and in her absolute worst is in "Why, Charlie Brown, Why?", where Linus talks about Janice - a girl with leukemia (cancer in the blood) - to her sister while she was watching TV. As soon as Linus enters, she asks him to bring her a glass of milk. He brings her sister the glass of milk. After that, he remembers that day at school when she said she wasn't feeling well, and when he put his hand on his forehead to see how warm it was. She is shocked and almost disgusted after hearing this and complains that he could have gotten leukemia from her and passed it on to her; Linus says that cancer is not contagious, and that it cannot be passed on to someone like a cold or the flu. That was enough for her to say that she might have taken it because she's a creepy kid. This is considered an insult to people who have cancer, and it was definitely one of the worst things Lucy has ever done.
    4. She has also showed signs of being misandrist at times, such as in "You're in Love, Charlie Brown", where she calls all men scoundrels and all alike.
      • Not only that. But on October 29th 1970, she also denounces the Great Pumpkin as a male chauvinist even though, (A), She has no Proof for her claim. And (B), The Great Pumpkin is not real. Which really makes things a lot worse then it seems.
    5. She appears to be horrible when it comes to playing on Charlie Brown's baseball team since she only joins the team just to be with Schroeder. To the point where Schroeder has threatened to quit the team because of her.
    6. Additionally, she has an extreme obsession with Schroeder in both the comics and specials as she does anything and everything just to be with him.
      • Examples include joining Charlie Brown's baseball team just to be with him (As stated earlier), mentioning marriage with him and even kissing him on some occasions.
        • There are even some times when she even goes as far as to destroy his piano just so she can get him to be with her, which is possibly the worst thing she has ever done to him.
      • In fact, her relationship with him is so bad, it is even hinted that this is the reason why she is so crabby, grumpy, and arrogant most of the time.

    Good Qualities

    1. Admittedly, the Peanuts franchise would not be the same without without her, and despite her flaws, she is one of the franchise's most iconic and beloved characters in the world.
    2. She hugged her younger brother Linus in The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show.
    3. She can be very likable in many specials, such as "A Charlie Brown Christmas", The Peanuts Movie, etc. She also used to be somewhat likable in her early appearances in the comic.
    4. She is very funny.
      • There are times when she gets her karma like getting kissed by Snoopy, which is hilarious.
      • And luckily, she was scolded by her brother Linus in "Why, Charlie Brown, Why?", after saying that she didn't want the glass of milk anymore, which causes him to yell, "No, thank you! I don't want to catch your crabbiness!", resulting in one of the most iconic moments in Peanuts history.
    5. Her voice actresses do great jobs at voicing her.
    6. In reality, she's not a bad character at all. Just flawed.


    • She is one of the many Peanuts characters to appear in the video game Snoopy's Street Fair, in which she operates her psychiatry booth from the comic strip.
