Is there any database or search engine for the comic strip Peanuts? I'd like to be able to search the text of the strip, if possible.

I know such things exist for e.g. Dilbert and Calvin and Hobbes, but I haven't been able to find one for Peanuts.

There are a few strips at, but they're not searchable (or at least don't appear to be) – ChrisF Aug 20 '10 at 21:43
There is a search engine now. – bariumbitmap Oct 22 at 16:30
@bariumbitmap: Brilliant! This is what I've been waiting for. – mmyers Oct 22 at 23:23
@bariumbitmap: Note that the search engine only covers a subset of all Peanuts strips -- presumably those which have been recently rerun. (Example: search for "hate him", which should lead to the very first Peanuts strip.) Still, it's a very good start. – mmyers Oct 27 at 16:42

The Peanuts online page lists, but doesn't link to, various on-line sources for cartoons.

I would suspect, given that Comics.con has so few strips online, that they want to charge for online access to all the strips given the strip's continued popularity.

Probably true. I actually don't necessarily need the strips themselves; I just wanted to quote one (on English.SE) and couldn't remember how it went. – mmyers Aug 20 '10 at 22:13
