Gang leadership

Usually, when I order a Peanuts book, I have a pretty good idea of what I’m going to find inside. I do, after all, have hundreds of Peanuts books, and am able to discern patterns. This will be a storybook, that will be a themed strip reprint, and so on. And so, …

Peanuts Favorite Christmas Cookies

Not satisfied with destroying my wallet, Hallmark now also targets my waistline with Peanuts Favorite Christmas Cookies, a new cookbook with about 50 cookie recipes, plus some strips. AAUGH! I don’t have a copy yet, so I’ll avoid commenting on the slightly odd title until I’ve gotten it.

Why Linus is our generation’s Jeb Bush

When they took the Linus-becomes-a-student-council-candidate storyline from the strips and turned it into a TV special, they gave it the title You’re Not Elected, Charlie Brown, even though Charlie Brown was not a candidate.

The reason that this seemed unlikely is that the four films are owned by two …

AAUGH Blog fan Bill just alerted me to this item you see pictured, a  Walmart Exclusive 50th anniversary set of Charlie Brown Christmas. It’s got two CDs,  four postcards (not just postcards, collectible postcards, we are told. They have not been collection-proofed! And looking at them, very non-Christmassy!) And what’s that over at the …

Big Book sighting

AAUGH Blog reader Bobby just dropped me an email to let me know that he’d sighted the 1960s volume of The Big Book of Peanuts, with all the daily strips from that decade, in a big pile at his local Costco in Virginia, along with copies of the 1970s and …

Timed totally coincidentally to launch on the day of The Peanuts Movie release is the Kindle edition of Bridge Mix: the Bridge Cartoons of Charles M. Schulz, the collection of the bridge-themed cartoons from Schulz’s single-panel newspaper feature, “It’s Only a Game”. The publisher is About Comics, which is… hey, that’s me! …
