Welcome to Super Blog Team Up! This time out, a gang of comic book and pop culture blogs and podcasts are teaming up to focus on Doctors.

My post spotlights the world’s most popular football holder and psychiatrist – Lucy van Pelt. 

When I was growing up, the Peanuts comic strip was in its prime and had the top spot on the comic strip page and in the Sunday Comics. Plus, A Charlie Brown Christmas and It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown were required viewing when they were shown. Because of this, I fell in love with Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, Lucy and the rest of the Peanuts gang.

Charlie Brown Cookies

These wonderful Charlie Brown cookies were made by Cooper’s Cookies. Lucy’s booth is on one of the cookies.

These days, the best way to read old Peanut strips are in the gorgeous hard back Complete Peanuts volumes published by Fantagraphics.

When I was a child, old Peanuts strips were collected in books that looked just like paper back novels. 

For the back cover of You’re Out Of Your Mind, Charlie Brown, Charles Schulz drew a sketch of Lucy van Pelt sitting behind a box labeled Psychiatric Care 5¢. This was the first appearance of Lucy’s psychiatric booth. This was before it ever appeared in a comic strip or cartoon.

A few months later, on March 27, 1959, the booth appeared for the first time in the comic strip.

Amazingly, it was a one time gag!

The booth didn’t appear again for two years. On January 28, 1961, Lucy’s psychiatry booth finally appeared again.  This time, it was beginning to look like the classic version of the booth.

Did you know that Lucy has also used her psychiatry booth for other purposes such as selling Goop

and valentines?

Valentine's Day

 

Once in a blue moon, she has even had someone else man the booth. Here is a wonderful Sunday strip where Snoopy takes Lucy’s place.

 

 

And, here is one where Woodstock assists Lucy.

These wonderful Charlie Brown cookies were made by Polka Dot Gal Bakery.

In addition, this close-up of Chewbacca’s face shows his teeth and eyes in detail. A piece of black fondant in the background highlights his teeth.

His fur was created with lines in the brown fondant.

Moreover, the birthday name is written in grey letters on the cake board.

Goofy Birthday Cake

Splendid Goofy 3rd Birthday Cake

This splendid Goofy 3rd birthday cake features Goofy’s smiling face. 

This wonderful cake was made by Sweet Art by Kat

Firstly, I like the color choices for this cake. The primary colors for the cake are green, orange, and blue. The cake board is green with blue writing that matches the blue cake. His shirt matches the orange stars and his green hat and the green number 3 matches the stars and the green cake board.

Secondly,  separate fondant pieces are put together to give him dimension. His shirt, neck, mouth, tongue, teeth, ears, nose, and hat are all separate pieces of fondant of a different color and thickness.

Flintstones Cupcakes

Flintstones Cupcakes

Happy Mother’s Day!

These fantastic Flintstones Cupcakes were made byPerfectly Crafted.

They feature Fred, Wilma and Pebbles Flintstone, their pet Dino, and Barney, Betty and Bamm-Bamm Rubble. Each character looks perfect!

When I was a child, if the Flintstones were on TV, I was usually glued in front of the TV watching them. My favorite episodes are probably “The Hot Piano” where Fred purchases a stolen piano for Wilma as an anniversary gift and “Ann-Margrock Presents” which guest stars Ann-Margret and has an adorable lullaby. 

The reason I picked these Flintstones Cupcakes for Mother’s Day was because my favorite multi-episode storyline is when Wilma gives birth to Pebbles. Half way through the 3rd Season, Wilma tells Fred that she is going to have a baby. The next few episodes deal with them getting ready for the baby. On February 23, 1963, Pebbles Flintstone is born. The birth of Pebbles takes a great cartoon and makes it an even better. She is a wonderful character and her birth really leads to a lot of growth of Fred and Wilma’s characters.

Pebble birth works out so well in the cartoon that less than a year later Betty and Barney Rubble adopt Bamm-Bamm.

These are some of my favorite cartoons and I thought they were a perfect focus for Mother’s Day.
