Peanuts at Comic-Con

If you’re one of those folks lucky enough to have tickets for the sold-out San Diego Comic-Con next weekend, you’re in for an interesting treat

  • Saturday, 4:45-5:45 PM: It’s a Great Comic-Con, Charlie Brown— Together for the first time at Comic-Con, Warner Home Video, United Media and the Schulz Estate bring you a Peanuts voice cast reunion in celebration of several great holiday DVD releases this September and October. Featuring Chris DeFaria (Peppermint Patty), Gabrielle DeFaria Ritter (Pigpen), Lisa DeFaria (Peppermint Patty), Sally Dryer (Violet and Lucy), Robin Kohn Glazer (Lucy), Jason Mendelson, Hilary Momberger (Sally), executive producer Lee Mendelson, and Jeannie Schulz, the wife of Charles M. Schulz. Room 6A

Plus, there will be a Peanuts booth on the sales floor again, as usual selling some limited-edition made-for-the-con goods: Peanuts lanyards, a Charlie Brown bobblehead based on the very first Charlie Brown figure, and  shirts featuring Lucy (for the girls), Linus (for the boys) and Snoopy (for the unisex among us.) Production runs of all these items are in the 300-600 range. Pictures available here.

I’ll be at the con, but as I don’t have a booth this year and have no panels scheduled, I won’t be easy to find. If you’re going to be there and have something you want to talk to me about, drop me a line at questions@AAUGH.com now, and we’ll see what can be set up.

I know that it can be hard to interpret the Peanuts characters for 3-D, and particularly to stylize them, but in this new set of blind bag ornaments from Hallmark, Linus appears to have cornrows. 40 SHARES Share Tweet this thing Follow the AAUGH Blog

Twerski’s fifth book

AAUGH Blog reader Asher asked me about the reference in the Tablet article that I linked to yesterday to Rabbi Twerski having written a fifth Peanuts-illustrated book, What’s the Big Deal?, which was issued translated into Japanese but never in its native English. He was wanting more information on it, …
