When the play, You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, was first staged on March 7, 1967, at Theatre 80 in New York City, there was no real script. The six young actors were armed mostly with ten songs and ten years' worth of cartoons by "Peanuts" creator, Charles M. Schulz. Clark Gesner, who created the music and lyrics for the play, notes in the foreword to the Random House edition of the script that the success of the play could be largely attributed to Schulz's "immensely human view of the world and his special ability to say it for all of us." The story of the play itself is told through a series of vignettes that mimic the four-panel format used by the original cartoon strip, "Peanuts." The scope of the play is described as an average day in the life of Charlie Brown and is broken into two acts.
