Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt is a major character from the newspaper comic strip Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz, introduced in 1966. She is a young tomboyish girl who lives across town from Charlie Brown and his friends. She has a persistent habit of profoundly misunderstanding basic concepts and ideas that most people would consider obvious, leading to ultimately embarrassing situations. She usually receives a D− grade on every test or assignment in school, but finally receives and A+ when she writes an essay that's about Snoopy. She is also very good at sports.
As Peppermint Patty's introduction in the strip came after A Charlie Brown Christmas was produced, she does not appear in that special. Curiously, recent storybook adaptations of the special do include her in place of the original Patty. She does, however, appear in "The Play", It's Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown, and "Christmas is on Its Way".
