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 comics.com/peanuts, 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. peanuts.com/search – bariumbitmap Oct 22 '15 at 16:30
    
@bariumbitmap: Brilliant! This is what I've been waiting for. – mmyers Oct 22 '15 at 23:23
    
@bariumbitmap: Note that the peanuts.com 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 '15 at 16:42
    
Aha! AMUreprints.com has a fully searchable database of every Andrews McMeel Universal comic strip, including Peanuts, Calvin & Hobbes, Garfield, Dilbert, and FoxTrot. It seems quite thorough. – mmyers Jul 10 at 5:16

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
