Marcie

  • First appearance: July 20, 1971
  • Peppermint Patty’s best friend, loyal follower, and complete opposite, Marcie is the smart one of the duo—even if she doesn’t know the difference between baseball and hockey. She’s horrible at sports, but terrific at friendship, especially with Charlie Brown (whom she calls “Charles”) and Peppermint Patty (whom she calls “sir”).

  • Did you know: Though Marcie first appeared by name in 1971, a girl named Clara who bears a striking resemblance attended Camp Kamp with Peppermint Patty in 1968.
