    Peanuts rated top dog comic strip headliner in the Chicago Tribune Sunday edition. Comforting member of the family strip along with Dondi and Terry and The Pirates, Gasoline Alley, Moon Mullins.

    As memory serves Terry is still in Hong Kong. April last seen inside what I believe was Kowloon; or perhaps she never left the island.
