Peanut Characters as a D&D Party


One of the first things I remember drawing as a kid was Snoopy.  My sister and I would draw the whole Peanuts gang over and over again.  Well, actually, we would trace them and make adjustments to their faces where needed.  The recent Peanuts cartoon announcement on FOX got me thinking about the strip again, and how the angst ridden life of Charlie Brown made my life seem less crappy in comparison.

So - I was just thinking - I'd like to draw them again.  But as a D&D party.  However, that's as far as I've got in the thought process.  Exactly WHO should be included in the party (of five or so,) and what roles they should take - I'm not sure.

Crowd-sourcing to the rescue.  So - what do YOU think should be the party make-up?  Who fits into what character class?  Let me know in the comments.  I'll paste something together from your answers and draw the group.

Thanks for your input in advance . . . :)

  1. My two cp:
    Charlie = Hapless fighter (a la Roy from OOTS)
    Snoopy = Half orc wizard (with Woodstock dragonette familiar)
    Lucy = Bossy cleric
    Linus = Wizard (with blanket spellbook)
    Sally = Thief (in Shiela costume from the D&D cartoon)
    Peppermint Patty = Barbarian or Valkyrie
    Marcie = Low level mage
    Schroeder = Bard with one of those sideboard harps (forget the name)
    Pigpen = Troglodyte warrior

    Here is some inspiration, look forward to what you make:

    1. Hmmm. I think Lucy would get REALLY MAD if I put a beard on her. :)

    1. That is somewhat disturbing. I think I might need to bleach my eyes. Sally should NEVER be wearing hotpants.

  5. Lucy is an Asassin posing as a cleric, perhaps Cleric/Assassin...
    Snoopy is an Illusionist-explains all his adventures vs. Red Baron et. al.
    Woodstock is Snoopy's Familiar
    Pigpen is a Thief-no one can see him, making picking pockets, etc. easy.
