Violet was the original mean girl of the Peanuts gang. She was even the first character to call Charlie Brown a blockhead. Her main weapon was social exclusion: "I'm having a party, and YOU'RE not invited!" She was, on the surface, an unrepentant bully and one of the least likeable characters in Charles Schulz's strip.
