Charlie Brown, the “lovable loser,” was created to represent a caricature of the average person.

The main character of Peanuts, an American comic strip written and illustrated by Charles M. Schulz, is characterized as an innocent and meek child who suffers a lot.

As a consequence he is often anxious, lacks self-esteem and self-confidence. But just as any other person who’s sometimes pessimistic and refuses to go out and meet a bunch of people who might spoil their day, Charlie also has plenty of good days.

That’s when he hopes for the best and tries to accomplish as much as he can. Although he is bullied and often seen as a loser, Charlie Brown is, in fact, an ambitious and courageous kid who manages to overcome difficulties.

The classic comic strip is actually filled with life lessons for all ages, and Charlie is someone that anyone can relate to at one point or another.
