Franklin's 50th "Peanuts" Anniversary | The Daily Show


  • Published on: 2018-08-10
  • this week marked a milestone in civil rights history the 50th anniversary of Franklin's first appearance in the comic strip Peanuts now now it seems like a joke but the reason this was a landmark is that before Franklin appeared newspaper comic strips were segregated right black comic strips Roy separates separate from white comic strips in fact if you even tried to put the pages of the newspaper together the police would just break down your door you'd be like Ron they'd be like well well well we've got a troublemaker over here so the character of Franklin was a pretty big deal and what's really fascinating is his origin story April 1968 Martin Luther King had been shot and killed American cities burned in rage in California a 42 year old teacher and mother of three felt helpless and I remember sitting in suburbia saying is there anything I can do Harriet Lichtman wanted to reach someone with influence she wrote to Charles Schulz his peanuts comic strip was read by nearly a hundred million people each week Charlie Brown Lucy Linus they were all white Glickman told Schulz he should integrate okay that was a pretty dope of that lady but fuck but at the same time also kind of a weird reaction to a tragedy I mean Martin Luther King is dead there's chaos in the streets and her first reaction is maybe Charlie Brown can help like I wonder if there's some nice suburban lady today going did you know they're putting kids in cages we got to get Garfield on the case where is he and the creator of peanuts Charles Schulz he made sure that Franklin's arrival was a statement his first appearance in the comic strip was at a beach swimming with white kids and that may seem trivial now but don't forget for many people in 1968 blacks and whites swimming together was not a normal thing and this image was seen by a hundred million people because peanuts in the 60s had the same kind of cultural dominance as friends in the 90s which unlike peanuts never managed to add a full-time black friend civil rights trailblazer we turn out to our very own Roy Wood jr. everybody no matter who you are you've got a love Franklin right oh man love him are you kidding man Franklin was a straight-up G integrated to shit out of peanuts yeah and I must have been a pretty big moment for you as a kid when he first appeared in the strip first appeared that was a 1968 how old do you think I am 50 40 60 I'm 39 Trevor this is the thing newspaper Franklin was great newspaper Franklin was great you can't argue that but when they put him on TV it was a different story all of a sudden they made him a stereotype [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] why what couldn't Franklin just do the hokey-pokey trap you telling me blackheads can't put they left foot in and take that left foot out if my white Franklin was auditioning for house party too it's so cool to have him in there even if he had one dance break it was every time with this kid anytime you walk down the street in peanuts Ville you might run into Franklin and his homeboy pop walking and even when he's hanging out with his friends everyone else gets a normal handshake with no not Franklin he got his slapped skin see what I mean all the other peanuts are just kids but Franklin's a runaround peanut feel like a damn baby shaft he's a tiny bear I just don't want him to be the other kid all the time even at Thanksgiving yeah they invited him even the dog just to sit with the kids watch the dogs even at the damn table it's Kudo Franklin Franklin look ma'am Franklin they did you a favor you don't want none of that bland ass white people Turk the internet ain't putting those sprinkles on it you know they don't season the food right hope y'all have things given in Africa Yeah right anyway like I hear what you're saying but I'd like I liked having Franklin on the screen I think it's important for kids to be able to see a version of themselves okay cool so if that's the case the cartoon should honor the original revolutionary spirit of Franklin if you don't make him rap do it right [Music] [Applause] what would you need everyone [Music] [Music]

  • Daniel Corregan

    Lol when black have nothing better to be proud of other than when the whites let them join their clubs.

  • Fearn’s Antics

    100 million Peanuts comic strip readers?!?! Wow didn’t know that. Trevor you expressed distaste that the old lady would turn to Charles Schultz after MLK murder... that it’s strange to turn to a comic strip for change. Don’t you consider yourself a comedian? You’re constantly bringing up civil rights issues and calling for change. I might be wrong but, based on exposure, I guess you can say that Franklin did more for civil rights than you do? 😉

  • C gatz

    trevor is jealous of franklin ,because he's" all black"

  • KC NotQuiteHD

    I only recently found out that there really is a cartoon called, “This is America, Charlie Brown.” Lol!

  • Miss BloopTart

    For all of you moaning and groaning, you do realize this is all a joke, right? They aren't as pissy about a comic character as much as you all are pissy at the thought of someone being pissy over a comic character. Come on, the Thanksgiving bit was a JOKE. Get over it.

  • Doug Breazeale

    What's wrong with FAKE NEWS shows like the Daily Show and CNN etc is that all of them do their best to make an agenda more important than freedom. Something that cost blood to obtain and can be lost by the whims of those deemed to be our rulers.

  • Emelia Bailey

    Do you realize you have more YouTube subscribers then Will Smith.

  • Bruce Wang

    Dear trevor noah, You are the worst, your "jokes" fall short everytime. The people who find you entertaining, enjoy how you pander to their victimhood more than anything else. Ignorant people watch programs like yours and believe themselves to be informed on political views, but all you do is say what everyone else is already saying. You aren't daring and you aren't clever. Please stop being who you are immediately. Thanks, Bruce

  • Michael Tepes

    We just broke The DaVinci Code of Charlie Brown racism LOL

  • Matthew Cosby

    They say we have cultural differences but then when you show the differences, they cry about it being a stereotype. For goodness sakes, complaining to complain, typical.

  • Mikey' Michael

    And we supposed to care because Charles Shultz added a token black?? Trevor Noah should stick to talking about the problems in his shit hole nation , and the blatant prejudice of whites there ! .and this show is shit since this chimp took over !

  • Poco the Pupper

    **draws some lines all over a peanuts character** "We just fixed American racism"

  • C gatz

    trevor uses his black half to push his racist political bullshit

  • Steve Levandoski

    They forgot the part where Schultz's editor asked him to change it and get rid of Franklin and he said, "Well, Larry, let’s put it this way: Either you print it just the way I draw it or I quit. How’s that?.

  • IW EU

    Hey Trev, you should consider making a return to South Africa. I hear appartide revenge is in full swing. Maybe you could tell your jokes there to kick off the genocide. Clearly that's what you want.

    The Falcons are going to win the Super Bowl this year 👍 👍

    She knew the way to touch the mind of the public is to get a hold of the children.

    That was crazy funny. I'm still laughing while typing. Lol

  • Natalie Bell

    Woooow is all I gotta say when they had Franklin dancin to "This is America" 😆

  • Lochen Dude

    So Franklin is a stereotype of blacks in America bringing the jams and the dance to the party? Jazz, blues, rock, rap.....oh wait, that really happened. Congrats Franklin! Keep on kicking out the jams, bunk that ol hokey-pokey!

  • John Smith

    So you'd rather have Franklin act like a cracker than have his own personality?

  • neb519

    Can't believe you're still on the air

    Regarding the rapping Franklin clip, yeah it's hilariously awkward to look at now. But, A) according to Wikipedia, "It's Spring Training, Charlie Brown" "was produced in 1992 but unlike previous specials it was not shown on CBS, and remained unseen until Paramount released it on video in 1996 alongside 1966's Charlie Brown's All-Stars." So out of all the "Peanuts" specials that aired on TV, they picked a clip from one that never did and was held back from the public for four years. And B) it was the 90s. Even Mickey Mouse had a rap album in the 90s. (Seriously, it was called "Mickey Unrapped.")

  • Jambudgaming

    ah, peanuts, such a classic, met them through Charlie Brown's Cyclopedia, read some comic strips later

  • superfisher28

    I love how Trevor makes a southern accent when he portrays the racist police. No wonder people in the south and Midwest hate the media. They are marginalized by them daily. Keep it up Noah you'll have 4 more years of MAGA.

  • Nana mbaye

    This shows how ignorant whites are. I dont remember ever seeing Franklyn. RACIST MOTHER FUCKERS!

  • H.N.I.C

    Stop it Asians had to li be with that fuckin Apu stereotype since we'll now

  • Jack Middleton

    God dam it I thought for one fucking video I was going to see something wholesome from this guy and not more complaining.

  • Kay-Dom

    Not to be racist or nothing, but you should be thankful that you have a "black" person on the tv/newspaper

  • Teddy McCall

    Franklin wanted sweet potatoe pie and not pumpkin so he sat by himself in protest LOL

  • OptimusX1972

    Schulz didn't have much control over the animated stuff, so he wasn't able to control what happened to Franklin....like the Thanksgiving table scene.

  • Versailles

    Who the fuck cares Skin color still matters to you Trevor? Fuck you this is why you’ll still be a biased liberal son of a bitch cause you are so sensitive you still view skin color as a social hierarchy.. Skin color should define this as a break through We are all human beings

  • First Last

    Trevor always pushing race to divide Americans.

  • Pumpi Kara

    Crazy how they will sit here and complain about stereotypes and literally mention the stereotype of white people not seasoning food.crazy

  • UkrGaz

    Black does crack... oh wait.

  • Mike Fernandez

    Funny thing with kids in cages is the fact that they are ILLEGAL to our country so they have no rights in America as we have sovereign immigration laws. BIG DIFFERENCE

  • mc luvinnn

    “You couldn’t even put the black & white comic books together” whaaaaahhh

  • Xander Fulton

    I never put that together about Franklin. I always thought he was just cool

  • Demonio

    No mention of Trump? Is this dubbed?

  • 1mantisco

  • gjaddajg
