For those of you in the Santa Rosa, California area, or obsessive Peanuts animation fans from other areas: the new Peanuts special Bully (the last one Schulz worked on, about playing marbles) will have its world premiere at the Schulz Museum on Saturday, October 21. During the day, they’ll be showing It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown to celebrate the 40th anniversary of that special. At 3 PM, producer Lee Mendelson will talk about the making of that special and others. And then at 4 PM, they’ll have a showing of the new special!
And hey, as long as we’re talking about animation, forgive me taking a moment to point you toward my latest work, a little promo piece using my comic book character Licensable BearTM. It’s just 40 seconds, so check it out:
