6. Schulz didn't actually name "Peanuts."
实际上《花生漫画》并非由舒尔茨命名。
In 1950, Schulz approached the United Feature Syndicate with his comic strip Li'l Folks. The syndication company accepted Schulz work but decided that the name "Li'l Folks" was too close to the names of two other comics of the time: Al Capp's "Li'l Abner" and a strip titled "Little Folks." So, to avoid confusion, United Feature Syndicate settled on the name "Peanuts" after the peanut gallery featured in the "Howdy Doody" TV show. In the end, Schulz did not name his famous work.
1950年,舒尔茨把连环漫画《孩子们→小家伙》卖给了美国联合图画公司, 但是该公司认为这部漫画的名字和当时另外两部漫画——艾尔•凯普的《莱尔•阿布纳》和《小孩子们》太接近。所以为了避免读者混淆,联合图画公司将它更名为《花生漫画》,这个名字取自胡迪•都迪电视节目中的花生画廊。最终,舒尔茨没能给自己最著名的作品取名。

7. And he hated the name.
而且他讨厌这个名字
Schulz always disliked the title of his famous comic strip, "Peanuts". In a 1987 interview, Schulz said of the name: "It's totally ridiculous, has no meaning, is simply confusing, and has no dignity -- and I think my humor has dignity."
舒尔茨一直不喜欢这部著名连环漫画的名字——《花生漫画》。在1987年的一次采访中,舒尔茨这样评价这个名字:“它完全就荒唐可笑→荒唐透顶,毫无意义,令人困惑,而且没有格调。我认为我的幽默是有格调的。”

8. Schulz wanted to call Snoopy "Sniffy."
舒尔茨想把史努比叫“斯尼非”。
Schulz was originally going to call his star dog character "Sniffy", that is until he discovered that name had already been used in a different comic strip. So the cartoonist changed it to "Snoopy" after remembering that his late mother Dena Schulz told the family that if they were ever to acquire a third dog, it should be called Snoopy, an affectionate term in Norwegian. (The word is "Snuppa".)
舒尔茨原本要给他的明星狗角色取名“斯尼非”,直到他发现这个名字已经被另一部不同的连环漫画用过了。所以漫画家在记起已故的母亲德纳•舒尔茨告诉家人如果养第三只狗→再养一只狗,就叫史努比后,把这个角色的名字改成了“史努比”。史努比是挪威语“Snuppa”的昵称。


9. And Schulz wanted Snoopy to be entirely silent.
舒尔茨想让史努比完全沉默。
Schulz originally imagined Snoopy as a silent character. It was only after two years of the comic that Snoopy verbalized his thoughts to readers in a thought balloon in 1952.
舒尔茨原本把史努比设想为一个沉默的角色,不过史努比的沉默只持续了两年,1952年它在想法气球中对读者说出了自己的想法。


10. Schulz named many of the other "Peanuts" characters after his friends.
《花生漫画》中许多其他角色以舒尔茨朋友的名字命名。

Linus and Shermy, prominent characters in the Peanuts comic strip, were named for good friends of Schulz, Linus Maurer and Sherman Plepler.

《花生漫画》的主要角色莱纳斯和雪米就是舒尔茨根据好朋友莱纳斯•毛瑞尔和雪米•布莱勒的名字命名的。
