Sally is quite outspoken about matters in life. All she wants is what's coming to her, and all she wants is her fair share. At least, that's what she says when she writes to Santa Claus. She prefers money, and all in large bills, to make it easier for Santa to carry. She has a huge crush on Linus, and she believes they are meant to be together. He is her Sweet Babboo. Linus, of course, wants nothing to do with her. The only time they actually spent together was on Halloween when Linus was waiting for the Great Pumpkin. And, every time something bad happens at school, Sally immediately wants to quit. Charlie Brown is quick to talk her out of it, though.
Peppermint Patty fancies herself an able-bodied sports expert. She's the best at everything. Baseball, hockey, biking, skating, you name it. When Charlie Brown asks her to join his baseball team, she's reluctant because his team has never won a game. Patty's a real tomboy who only dresses up for special occasions. And sometimes not even then. She prefers a lose-fitting shirt, shorts, and flip-flops for shoes. She has a crush on Charlie Brown, often imagining that Chuck, as she calls him, calls her on the phone because he feels the same way. She always uses the phrase, "You sly dog!", when she thinks he's flirting with her. Her best friend is Marcie. Patty gets very low grades in school, most likely due to her short attention span and her habit of falling asleep in school.
Marcie is nothing like Patty at all. She's very smart in school, mild-mannered, and very bad at sports. It's a bit of a mystery why Patty and Marcie are friends. Marcie refers to Patty as "Sir", probably because of Patty's tomboy tendencies. She also has a bit of a crush on Charles, as she calls him. She feels sorry for him because of the way he's treated by the others. Marcie does not become angry very often, being very soft-spoken. It is believed that Marcie got her looks from an earlier character in the strip named Clara, who bore a striking resemblance to her. Clara was shown later in the strip without glasses, to avoid confusion with Marcie. Her first television appearance was in the special There's No Time For Love, Charlie Brown.
Woodstock and Snoopy first met when Woodstock's mother built a nest on his stomach. At one point, she flew away, leaving her two children behind. Snoopy got tired of them being around and released them into the world. Woodstock later returned, and Snoopy gradually got used to having him around. Charles Schulz has admitted that he took Woodstock's name from the rock festival in the 60's. Snoopy and Woodstock get into arguments about different things, and sometimes they won't speak to one another for awhile, but they always make up later on. One of Snoopy's extra-curricular activities is taking Woodstock and his friends, Bill, Harriet, Olivier, Raymond, Fred, Roy and Conrad, on Boy-Scout type trips. Snoopy is always the scout leader. Woodstock is terrible at flying, and can only fly for short periods of time.
Pig-Pen just can't stay clean. He has tried, on a few occasions, to clean up, only to step outside and have dirt fly to him as if drawn by a magnet. After a period of time, Pig-Pen gave up and just accepted the situation. He had a crush on Violet at one time, but only because he saw her making mud pies. The closest thing Pig-Pen has to a friend is Charlie Brown, who has said that Pig-Pen's dirt might have come from far away lands and might have been trod on by famous Biblical or historical figures. Pig-Pen has also appeared in Regina vacuum commercials.
Joe Cool is Snoopy's alter ego. He is found hanging around schools or on a street corner checking out girls. He sees himself as a college man who loves girls and root beer. He also loves good music and dancing. However, the girls tend to avoid him, seeing him as uncool. Sometimes he wears a t-shirt or a jacket to go with his cool shades.
