Schulz was born on Nov. 26, 1922.

As if presaging his eventual stardom as the creator of "Peanuts," his nickname was itself based on a cartoon.

Just two days after Schulz was born, his uncle was the first person to call him Sparky.  He got the name from the horse, Spark Plug, in comic strip, "Barney Google."
