Linus Van Pelt's role in The Peanuts:

Linus Van Pelt, the "peacemaker" of the Peanuts crew, is a valuable member of the Peanuts community. Solving situations and disagreements, Linus is smartest of the gang, though is often not perceived as so since he is in fact, the youngest. When Lucy questions his security blanket, asking: "Don't the other kids laugh at you? (12/29/2009 Peanuts cartoon)", Linus replies in a calm and rational manner. This response displays his stability and confidence: especially in the presence of his security blanket.

Symbolism of the blanket:

In the Peanuts cartoon, Linus's blanket acts as a source of comfort and confidence. Like a shadow, his blanket accompanies Linus wherever he goes. Linus thinks of his blanket as his best friend, and a human being. He cares so much for the blanket, worrying that "IT'LL BLEED!! (7/18/08 Peanuts cartoon), therefore treating it with extreme care.
Giving courage to Linus, the blanket also helps him to bear every day situations. Allowing Linus to ignore teasing at school, the blanket transforms him into the "...Count Dracula from Transylvania!..." (7/15/2008 Peanuts cartoon). Responsible for his self-esteem and security throughout the Peanuts cartoon series, Linus would be devastated if without his security blanket.
