If Kyrgyzstan isn’t on The List, you should know you’ve committed a grave sin against Sporcle. ;)

I don’t see anything positive coming from further discussion in this thread, so I’m going to go ahead and lock it.

By the nature of the original medium (newspaper comics), as well as the sheer variety of other media Peanuts has secondarily inhabited, it was unusually difficult to answer any of those sort of questions without elaboration. If I was running this independent of the existing rules, I’d have probably made slight elaborations to those answers. Sometimes Yes and no feels insufficient. The TV series question, for example, was more problematic than it might seem even now. To my knowledge, Peanuts has never existed as a televised, serialized form: its TV incarnations were ostensibly independent specials. At the same time, in the series’ heyday they were produced with annual regularity. There was no satisfactory solution to that without elaboration disallowed by the rules. Similarly, Peanuts collections (in book form) are merely an elaboration of the original medium. I liberally interpreted book to mean either a novel or similar (since we were dealing with a fictional character); in retrospect, I might have selected yes or no.

I like to use Charlie Brown when I first play 20 Questions with a new group; newspaper comics are an often forgotten form, and I like to force people to think when movies, TV, novels, video games, etc. all fail to capture the character’s primary form. At the same time, he’s arguably the most famous funnies character, and therefore isn’t too obscure, and in fact can be guessed quickly if comics are established. Unfortunately, as seen above, it was difficult to satisfactorily do here.

All of that is merely an explanation; I did think about each answer I gave. We’re now in a different round, of course, so to answer Lou’s question above:

10. Yes.

He didn’t elicit any information, and was warned not to ask again.

EDIT: I’ll be heading to bed shortly, so if you have any questions that can’t wait until tomorrow, ask them now!

I guess I’ll host another one.

I’m thinking of a person, place, or thing. Good luck!

Some general advice for where the answer is a person: Narrowing questions (real or fictional, male or female, alive or dead, etc.) are a good way to get started. Once you’ve established those baselines, things like genre or profession can help narrow further.
