The Great Wednesday Compare #7- Marilla Cuthbert VERSUS Snoopy

The winner of last week's Great Wednesday Compare (Marilla Cuthbert VERSUS Dexter Morgan), with a final score of 6-2 was Marilla Cuthbert.

Honestly, the pairing last week was more out of personal amusement than anything else. Though it is interesting. I think Marilla would make a snide remark about anyone writing such crap as Dexter and then she'd move on, I think Lucy Maud Montgomery would be shocked and fearful about what the future literary arts hold. Serial killers? Egad! I guess I fancy Marilla as tougher than her creator. As for me, I didn't even know Dexter was a literary character until long after I'd seen the first season of the TV show. I still haven't read a Dexter book. But it looks like he'll be remembered more as a TV character than a literary character anyway. I did like the premise and how it toys with a viewer's (reader's) sense of morality. However, I thought the ending of the 1st season was pretty stupid and haven't bothered with it since.

Moving on. Vote in the comment section below before October 19th: Who is the better character?

Snoopy is classic, but I just have so much respect for Marilla, so I have to say Marilla Cuthbert.

Marilla again. No particular reason, I just love her character; while I don't feel particularly drawn to Snoopy.

Oh my goodness! Snoopy clearly has more talent in his little toe than Marilla has in her whole body. He's adept at all kinds of sports (baseball, hockey, figure skating), knows a little French, plays the accordion, writes (It was a dark and stormy night...) and of course is the World War I Flying Ace. "Curse you, Red Baron!"
Snoopy!

I can't say I've ever really been a fan of the Peanuts but if I had to pick a favourite it would be Linus. Snoopy & Woodstock just don't do it for me. Sooooo.....

Marilla again for me.

Never been a big Peanuts fan, although I do appreciate the truth of "wah wah wah" more than I used to. Still, it'll have to be Marilla.

Definitely Marilla. She is a wonderful creation.
