Lucy character jug produced in China by Vandor of Salt Lake City, Utah, in 2021. Lucille "Lucy" Van Pelt is a fictional character in the syndicated comic strip "Peanuts", written and drawn by Charles Schulz. She is the older sister of Linus and Rerun. Lucy is characterized as a "fussbudget", crabby, bossy and opinionated girl who bullies most other characters in the strip, particularly Linus and Charlie Brown. Lucy operates a psychiatric booth, parodying the lemonade stand operated by many young children in the United States. Here, she offers advice and psychoanalysis for five cents, most often to an anxious or depressed Charlie Brown. Lucy has an unrequited crush on musical prodigy Schroeder, in part because Schroeder, a one-note character, cared about nothing but Beethoven and playing the piano.
