new Peanuts cartoon permiere

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.

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:
