My brother introduced me to Charlie Brown and the gang.
For whatever reason, the evening newspaper my family got did not carry the Peanuts comic strip. Perhaps it was in the morning paper. (Yes, there was a time when cities had a morning paper and an evening one.) So if my brother had not discovered Peanuts and bought paperback compilations of the daily strip, I’m not certain when I would’ve found the wonderful characters created by Charles M. Schulz.
