Chosen Exile or Not

It's fun to see Charles Schulz delineate grown-ups and cars and such. It shows that the simplicity in Peanuts was a chosen exile.

Update: Jim Sasseville drew these panels. Did not know that. Maybe it was not a chosen exile of simplicity for Schulz. Thank you commenters.

Schulz didn't draw this strip. He brainstormed gags and then turned the drawing duties over to Jim Sasseville. A better look at Schulz drawing non-kids can be found in his cartoons for church publications (e.g. Teenager Is Not a Disease).

Here's a good interview with Jim Sasseville, the artist who drew that for Charles Shulz.
