Floyd is a minor male character in the comic strip Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz. He attends summer camp with Peppermint Patty and Marcie in a storyline that began on July 20, 1976.


Marcie first tells Peppermint Patty on the bus to camp, that the boy behind her is calling her names. Marcie responds by hitting him with a first-aid kit. Later at camp, the boy keeps calling Marcie names, so she clobbers him with her lunch, pushes him off the dock (into the lake) and shoves him into a patch of poison oak.


The first appearance of Floyd from July 26, 1976.

Six days after he was first referred to, the boy makes his first appearance in the comic strip. It is revealed that his name is Floyd, and he was only calling Marcie "Lambcake" to get her attention because he liked her. Marcie dismisses Floyd's use of the pet name as sarcasm intended to mock her. Peppermint Patty tells Marcie she is being ridiculous by beating up Floyd, just because he called her "Lambcake", which is not at all an insulting name. However, Peppermint Patty gets very angry, and even beats up Floyd when he calls her "Sir".

Floyd keeps following Marcie and calling her by the same pet name until he leaves camp. When the time comes for Floyd to go home, in the strip from August 6, 1976, he is unhappy that Marcie still does not like him back and saddened that he cannot write to her because he does not know her surname or address. Fortunately for Marcie, Floyd never surfaced in the strip again.
