Pig Pen

  • First appearance: July 13, 1954
  • Happily traveling in his own private dust storm, Pigpen is completely comfortable in his own (dust-streaked) skin. Despite his outward appearance, he always carries himself with dignity, knowing full well that he has affixed to him the “dust of countless ages.”

  • Did you know: Charlie Brown is the one kid that unconditionally accepts Pigpen for who he is, even defending his uncleanliness in one strip.
