The comic strip Peanuts was created by Charles M. Schulz (1922 – 2000). Peanuts was published in newspapers from 1950 to 2000. The comic often addressed cultural, political, or social themes. Lucy van Pelt is one of the characters of this comic who is known for being bossy and opinionated, which is displayed in the phrase, “I don't care if anybody likes me.. Just so I'm popular!” The phrase from this comic frame is one in a set of commonly used quotes on memorabilia to display Lucy’s character and Charlie Brown’s patience or boredom with her.
