SUNDAY DEBUT ON THIS DAY IN 1952

Peanuts

The first Sunday strip of Peanuts (above) appeared in the half-page format,
which was the only complete format for the entire life of the Sunday strip. Most 
of the other characters that eventually became the main characters of Peanuts
did not appear until later. The comic strip was written and illustrated by Charles
M. Schulz and premiered on October 2, 1950 in nine newspapers.

SHOW DEBUTED ON THIS DAY IN 1968


Happening ’68 was co-hosted by Mark Lindsay and Paul Revere
with their band Paul Revere and the Raiders making frequent       
appearances on the show.

Happening ’68 was a rock & roll variety series produced by Dick Clark
Productions
, which aired on the ABC television network. The show
followed American Bandstand on Saturday afternoons. Happening ’68 
was popular enough that ABC added a weekday spin-off. It’s Happening
ran on Mondays through Fridays from July 15, 1968 through October 25,
1968. When 1968 ended, Happening ’68 became just Happening, which
was canceled in October 1969.


1966 ~ 1972
