Ethan first appeared on July 14, 1993, in the same summer camp as Charlie Brown. Ethan is Charlie Brown's bunk mate. In his first appearence, he shows Charlie Brown an arrow that he made in art class, describes it as an Indian arrow. The next day, he tells Charlie Brown he wants to be a newspaper columnist, because he has strong opinions about everything. He demonstrates by telling Charlie Brown he thinks the shirt he is wearing is stupid. Nothing more is seen of Ethan after that.
