He created Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang. Now the former Minneapolis home of cartoonist Charles Schulz on West Minnehaha Parkway is up for sale.

Two wall paintings Schulz did of Charlie Brown and Snoopy in the 1950s still remain in one of the bedrooms.

Ken Abdo's father bought the house in the early 1960's, now Abdo is selling the the five bedroom, five bath, he grew up in for $850,000.

Together the wall art is appraised at $100,000. Abdo is considering removing the paintings, that would mean part of the walls, and selling them to the Charles Schulz Museum in California.
