Charles Schulz (1922 to 2000)
Protestant
Those l'il folks were peanuts to him.

Charles Monroe Schulz, creator of the comic strip Peanuts, was born in Minneapolis. After serving in World War 11, Schulz became a free-lance cartoonist with the St. Paul Pioneer Press and the Saturday Evening Post. In 1950 he created a strip entitled Li'l Folks, which later was syndicated as Peanuts. This became one of the most successful American comic strips of the mid-20th century. Schulz, a born-again Christian, was able to inject subtle truths into his comic strips, truths that many would otherwise ignore.
