She has befriended the tomboyish, athletic Peppermint Patty, and she has a mostly-unrequited crush on the underdog Charlie Brown. The character was modeled after Elise Gallaway, the roommate of Patty Swanson, Charles M. Schulz's cousin and the inspiration for the Peppermint Patty character.
She is one of a small group in the strip who lives across town from Charlie Brown and his school friends (although in The Peanuts Movie she, along with Marcie and Franklin, lives in the same neighborhood and attends the same school).

Peanuts

Peanuts WorldwideSnoopyCharlie Brown/Peanuts Specials
Marcie, unofficially surnamed Johnson and Carlin, is a fictional character featured in the long-running syndicated daily and Sunday comic strip Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz.
She also brings in a new group of friends (and heads a rival baseball team), including the strip's first black character, Franklin; a Mexican–Swedish kid named José Peterson; and Peppermint Patty's bespectacled, bookish sidekick Marcie, who calls Peppermint Patty "Sir" and Charlie Brown "Charles" and sometimes "Chuck" (most characters only call him "Charlie Brown", though he was known as "Charles" to Eudora, "big brother" to his sister Sally Brown, "that round-headed kid" to Snoopy, and "Brownie Charles" to Peggy Jean after misspeaking his name out of nervousness).

There's No Time for Love, Charlie Brown

Marcie first appeared on television in the 1973 special There's No Time for Love, Charlie Brown.
Simultaneously, he must fight off the distraction of Peppermint Patty and her classmate Marcie (in her animated debut), both of whom have feelings for him.

You're in the Super Bowl, Charlie Brown

In the animated special You're In the Super Bowl, Charlie Brown, Marcie's surname is given as "Johnson", but Schulz never gave her a surname in the comic strip.
Charlie Brown decides, she's right, and tries to kick the ball, until Peppermint Patty comes, with Marcie, Franklin, and Linus, and tells Charlie Brown and Lucy, there will be a punt pass and kick contest, and first prize wins a new bicycle, and a trip to the Super Bowl, and they should all enter.

The Peanuts Movie

PeanutsSnoopy And Charlie Brown: The Peanuts MovieBox office
In the 2015 The Peanuts Movie, for which Schulz's son, Craig Schulz, and Schulz's grandson, Bryan Schulz, were included among the film's writers and producers, both had decided to include for the first time the full name of the character "Marcie Carlin", which appears on a bulletin board at the kids' school.

It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown

However, she is sometimes portrayed as being somewhat naive as showed It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown when Marcie showed complete ineptitude in the kitchen, making several unsuccessful attempts at preparing eggs to color for Easter, and then later biting into one without removing the shell first (saying "Tastes terrible, sir"), all to Peppermint Patty's great consternation.
Peppermint Patty and Marcie attempt to color Easter eggs, but as it is Marcie's first time, she does not know how.

Charlie Brown

Peanuts'' character of the same namethe ''Peanuts'' character
She has befriended the tomboyish, athletic Peppermint Patty, and she has a mostly-unrequited crush on the underdog Charlie Brown.
Charlie Brown is always referred to by his full name (with the exception of Peppermint Patty who calls him "Chuck", and Marcie and Eudora who call him 'Charles') and his usual catchphrase is "good grief".

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

Marcie was a soft-spoken voice of reason to Peppermint Patty; an example of this showed in the 1973 Emmy Award winning special A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving; when Peppermint Patty throws a fit about the "dinner" Charlie Brown made for them, Marcie gently reminds her that he didn't invite her to dinner, but she invited herself.
Two quick subsequent phone calls from Peppermint Patty add Marcie and Franklin to the guest list, but since Charlie Brown cannot get a word in edgewise with Patty, he quickly finds himself in a quandary with no easy solution, at least not until Linus shows up.

You're the Greatest, Charlie Brown

In the special You're the Greatest, Charlie Brown, she proved quite capable on the athletic field, even winning the decathlon for the school.
Marcie also watches (and gives encouragement) and Snoopy works out with him (showing how in-shape he is and how out of shape Charlie is in the process).

Case in point, in a sequence from July–August 1973, when she reluctantly joins Peppermint Patty's baseball team, she becomes the target of a male teammate named Thibault (pronounced TEE-bo), who constantly follows her around tormenting her with chauvinistic insults until she ultimately slaps him senseless.
Floyd appeared July 26, 1976, at a summer camp Peppermint Patty and Marcie were attending, flagging Marcie's attention by calling her "Lambcake" as an expression of his immediate infatuation with her.
