[Peanuts, February 2, 1971.]

The often inelegant, sometimes playful suffix -wise.

Snoopy is reading a letter from Woodstock, who’s received a scholarship to attend worm school. Woodstock was going to bring “a girl” home to meet Snoopy, “but she ran off with a stupid robin.” This 1971 strip is today’s Peanuts.

Exactly. The Apartment is in one or more of the related posts. The screenplay ends with a great line: “And that’s about it. Story-wise.”

I wish I had had a chance to show it to a class. Never hit on the right context.
