Rerun was "born" into the strip in 1972, during a storyline in which Lucy threw Linus out of the house only to learn that yet another little brother had just been born. Rerun's first actual appearance was on March 26, 1973. He initially looked like a smaller version of Linus. Lucy, who always wanted to be an only child (or have a younger sister), was less than thrilled at the prospect of having a second younger brother, and commented that getting a second younger brother was like watching reruns on television; thus, Linus came up with the idea of calling the family's new addition "Rerun." ("Rerun van Pelt. Good Grief!" muttered Lucy.) 1972 (MCMLXXII) was a leap year starting on Saturday. ...

Eventually, Lucy warmed up to Rerun and even became somewhat of a teacher or mentor to him, being much more kind and patient with Rerun than she was with Linus. Linus also took Rerun under his wing in later years, attempting to "convert" Rerun to his belief in "The Great Pumpkin", and taking his little brother along on door-to-door "missions" to spread the word of the Great Pumpkin. Linus awaits the Great Pumpkin. ...


The first storyline in which he was featured involved a still pre-verbal Rerun becoming a player on Charlie Brown's baseball team and being involved in a gambling scandal that ended in the team having to forfeit one of their rare victories. Later strips had him verbalizing in thought balloons and featured him as a nervous passenger on the back of his mother's bicycle.

Rerun was rarely used in the 1980s; in fact, by that time, Schulz had come to believe that introducing Rerun into the strip was a mistake. However, in the 1990s, he resurfaced, having grown to where he was almost equal in height to his siblings and the other kids. Schulz's drawing style had suffered by this time, and sometimes it was hard to tell Rerun from Linus. To distinguish him, Schulz added overalls and a flattened hair style.

Schulz made Rerun into a main character and much of the focus of the strip in its final years was from Rerun's perspective. (Schulz admitted in a 1997 interview with Gary Groth that the character virtually "took over" the comic.) Most of his storylines involved his anxieties and struggles with being a "little kid" among big kids, and his desire to play with Snoopy and have a dog of his own. Snoopy usually didn't want any part of it unless Rerun gave him cookies. Failing that, Rerun also was often shown trying to sell Charlie Brown something in order to make money to buy his own dog: His most recent appearance was in the 2006 television special He's a Bully, Charlie Brown. 1997 (MCMXCVII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

 Rerun: How would you like to buy some homemade fudge? Charlie Brown: Who made it? Rerun: My grandma, my mother and my sister. Charlie Brown: Are you the middleman? Rerun: No, they're all taller than me. 

Another recurring scene had Rerun always hiding under his bed in an attempt to get out of going to school, a ploy that usually didn't work. In school, Rerun displayed something of a rebellious streak, always drawing "underground comics", (usually referring to them as "basement comics") instead of paintings of flowers as the teacher had instructed. Rerun was also often shown flirting with an unnamed pigtailed girl in his kindergarten class. On one occasion he joked about taking her away to Paris, and was suspended from school for sexual harassment. Mr. ...

Rerun's animated debut came in the animated television special It's Arbor Day, Charlie Brown, and his first major appearance in the strip was adapted in the first produced episode of The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show.
