A Charlie BANNED Christmas

Following up on yesterday’s post about how Texas prisons have banned The Peanuts Collection, I should note that that’s not the only Peanuts book they’ve banned. They’ve also banned the book adaptation of A Charlie Brown Christmas… and since they are, presumably, wise followers of this blog (all the best people …

Fire update

I’ve gotten some inquiries for an update on the fire situation here. Yes, the fire has continued to grow and has changed direction at times, but it has not come any closer to AAUGH.com central, we’re still about 10 miles away from the closest part of the burn region. We …

Peanuts – BANNED!

Friend of the blog Jeff alerted us to the fact that the Dallas Morning News has reported a list of books banned in the Texas prison system, and on that list is none other than The Peanuts Collection, the book on Peanuts history written by none other than the AAUGH Blogger …

Flames, redux

It was not so long ago that this blog was tracking the Santa Rosa blazes, with their tragic costs and the things that were spared. Now we here at AAUGH.com central have another fire to track, one that may be of less consequence to the Peanuts world, but is kind …

While Hallmark has seen fit not to grant us another book adaptation of A Charlie Brown Christmas this year (sniff), they have issued another new book for the reason-for-the-season crowd. Blessings from Peanuts: Thoughts on Faith to Make You Smile is a hardcover gift book which collects a number of Bible and religion-themed …

I’m an Amazon! And I’m Prime!

If you have both Amazon Prime and some strange urge to see the AAUGH Blogger talking, go watch the Amazon Prime Video steam of Charlie Brown’s Christmas Tales, because for some reason after the special they have tacked on “Sibling Rivalry,” a documentary featurette about Rerun Van Pelt that was …

A weak Christmas for the Peanuts book fans

While there certainly are some interesting new Peanuts books out for the shopping season this year, there are some notable absences. No 1990s edition of The Big Book of Peanuts, what had been an annual release of all the Peanuts daily strips, coming out a decade at a time. These books …

I’m to blame for Schulz forgeries!

EBay is, unsurprisingly, awash in fraud. It gets pulled in many ways, including knock-off items and forgeries. Cartoonist Terry Beatty (currently of the “Rex Morgan” newspaper strip) has been doing a good job of highlighting tracings and fakes being passed off as original drawings by famous cartoonists – and given …

Where are they now?

I was installing a new Blu-Ray player (well, reinstalling an old one, having lost the remote on the newer one), and I reckoned I’d test it by putting The Peanuts Movie disk in… which drew my 8 year old away form his video games, and he came over and watched the …
