schroederI knew there was a reason that I always thought Schroeder was the coolest dude in the Peanuts gang. Turns out that in the various cartoons in which he makes an appearance, the musical notes that floated above his piano in the strip weren’t just random ink blots. They actually translate to music if read properly, and the tone of the music corresponds to the mood of the strip.

Very cool NY Times piece explains the whole deal HERE.
