Good Grief!

If this had appeared on October 2, it would have made sense as a 64th anniversary tribute (now I’m imagining Charlie Brown, in his halting, phoenetically-spoken voice from the television specials, singing “When I’m 64″ — and it’s not pretty). Since they’re going back to 1952, if this had run on January 6, it would have commemorated the first Sunday strip (1/6/52). But is there any particular point to this running in mid-September?

Okay, I understand the Monday and Friday gags; but the rest of them, and the point of the arc itself… not a clue.
