Rare comic strip by Charles Schulz shows adults

You have to love Charles Schulz, if nothing else, for his dedication to showing how kids view the world. Every comic strip has it's idiosynchracies, and Peanuts was no exception: adults were never shown as faces, except, it appears, in rare circumstances. In this case, it looks like a comic strip proposal, using a Peanuts pre-formatted page, was created using adults rather than kids.

Of course, for some other interesting and rare things that have occured in comic strips, note Beetle Bailey's eyes, Lena the Hyena's face, and BD without a helmet (much more recently, he's been permanently without one, something that, a strip in the 90s said, required outpatient surgery).
