Peanuts things to put together

My family gave me two Peanuts gifts for the holidays, both from Japan. One is this glow-in-the-dark jigsaw puzzle, That will be assembled on some Sunday morning at a breakfast table with bagels.

There will be a Christmas in 2022!

It’s the new year, and with a new year comes, of course a new Christmas, waiting just around the corner. Well, not around the near corner, but it’s somewhere around the far corner of the year, so we might as well be working toward it. Will this year bring us …

Comic book Peanuts

Obscenuts

I utterly accidentally stumbled across this 1981 piece noting that the syndicate was suing Minnesota-based comics publisher Edward Alexander for having produced an all-too-adult take on the Peanuts characters. This is bothering me because it’s not something I’ve ever heard of before, nor am I finding any other reference to …

Charlie Brown’s Big Christmas

So, my copy of that new book adaptation of A Charlie Brown Christmas arrived today, the one that Hallmark has listed at $65… although if you act quickly (i.e., Monday, the day you’re most likely reading this), you can probably still get one at 20% off. Is it big? Well… …
