Strip by: Mt. Calvin

(Linus turns on the TV and sits down in a beanbag chair)
Lucy: What are you watching?
Linus: "Citizen Kane".
Lucy: "Rosebud" was his sled.
(Linus is shocked)
Lucy: It was his sled from when he was a kid.
Lucy (Walking away): There, I just saved you 2 hours.
Linus: AAUGH!

The author writes:

I got the idea pretty much right after I found out the Family Guy joke that named the "It Was His Sled" subjective trope was predated by several years by a Peanuts comic that also referenced the well-known reveal in Citizen Kane.

Original strip: Peanuts , 1973-12-9
