Schultz drew plenty of material from his own brood of five kids.
Schultz was notorious, however, for refusing to ever accept any ideas for the famous cartoon from any one else- even his own family members.

Good morning, lt. This was a funny one; blast from the past.

#1 - I don't live in a typical neighborhood, I guess, as i didn't know people had "typical' neighborhood dance classes, or neighborhood dances, for that matter. My neighborhood is 1/2 'snowbirds' and out of a total of 62 homes, 2/3 are seniors. So I'd have to answer: waltz, polka, & foxtrot. Although if they don't know them at their age, they don't want to learn. Others would be the ones you do at weddings.
#2 - Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream
#3 - Alamonte - traggic.
#6 - Pancreas
#7 - Giant desert mutated Ants - it was the sound that made it the scariest, at the time, I think.
#8 - Not sure, but my guess is (1) Russia, (2) Africa, or (3) it's ice, does it really have 'land mass'?, (4) South Pole
T or C? - Crap.
