Thibault pronounced tee-bo is a minor male character in the Peanuts comic strip by Charles M. Schulz and the adversary of both of his appearances the protagonists being Charlie Brown in the first storyline and Marcie in the second. He first appeared in the strip from June 4, , in which Charlie Brown was very surprised by his unusual name. Thibault is shorter than most of the other Peanuts characters, but in spite of that, he is angry, argumentative, pugnacious, and generally unpleasant, with an angry look and a perpetual frown on his face. He sports a mullet-like haircut and, despite being smaller than most of the gang, he is surprisingly depicted as having sideburns in both his comic strip and TV appearances. The storyline in which Thibault was introduced saw Peppermint Patty ask Charlie Brown to come over and lend his baseball glove to a player on her team who does not have one.
Charlie Brown's baseball team
Charlie Brown is the manager of this team and, usually, its pitcher, with other characters of the strip comprising the rest of the team. Charlie Brown is a terrible pitcher, and his efforts often giving up tremendous hits which tend to knock him off the mound, leaving him with only his shorts on. However, he shows up for every game with very rare exceptions, and stays even when it starts raining causing everyone else on the team to go home. The rest of the team is also poor.
The hapless Charlie Brown who was usually called by both names—though Peppermint Patty invariably called him Chuck and the bespectacled Marcie called him Charles was an indecisive, likable, easily embarrassed elementary-school boy. Schulz considered him his alter ego. He represented a youthful Everyman. While expecting the worst, he hoped for the best, as evidenced by his role as the manager of a perennially underperforming baseball team.
