Charles Schulz initially learned how to draw by answering an advertisement that asked, "Do you like to draw?" His art school correspondence school was the inauspicious start to his nationally syndicated strip Peanuts.

Charles Schulz died on February 12, 2000 from complications due to color cancer. He was 77 years old. He is buried at the Pleasant Hills Memorial Park in Sebastopol, California.

The last Peanuts cartoon was drawn by Schulz shortly before he died, and was printed the day after his passing (Feb. 13, 2000).
