Austin, Leland, Milo, and Ruby appeared in 17 strips of a 1977 storyline in which Charlie Brown ran away from home to flee the United States Environmental Protection Agency after taking revenge on a Kite-Eating Tree. [*]
Seriously, I think this is right up there with the time Garfield died

The links in that old entry about Garfield are all broken.
On the other hand, that alphabet made my day.

They've moved the comic archive into Shockwave Flash, which makes linking to specific comics impossible. You'll have to click through to http://www.garfield.com/comics/vault.html
, use their search thingy to go to "October 23, 1989", and then click "Next" through the following 6 days. (*mutters imprecations about stupid Flash breaking the Web*)
If it makes you feel any better, Apple is doing their level best to destroy Flash. (And I think they might actually succeed.)
Oh, yes. It is my favorite. Charlie Brown takes a bite
out of a tree.
("You didn't think I'd do it, did you?"
) And while he's away from home, he sleeps in a cardboard box. In fact, I
wrote that sub-entry for Wikipedia.
Though not the sidebar. That's new. My confusion there (Frieda's brother?) led me through a few pages about TV specials, where I learned that there is a TV special, "It's an Adventure, Charlie Brown," based on this story. Frank Oz is credited as the tree.
It's not on YouTube, alas.

That's OK you can watch the Star Wars Christmas Special instead.

Wow. This is one of those "small world" moments that we would find entirely too convenient
in a work of fiction.
I really want to see this TV special -- or at least these strips -- now.
