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, …

A Charlie Brown Christmas in its original black and white

I did a little unboxing of the A Charlie Brown Christmas Coloring Kit, which is the third new print edition of A Charlie Brown Christmas that I’ve covered this year. (Email blog subscribers can see the video here.) What this video shows, if you pay attention, is: I really need to clean my …

It’s a Tree-Tumbling Christmas, Charlie Brown

Hallmark has released another book featuring their “itty-bittys” reworking of the Peanuts characters, this one with two stuffed Peanuts figures attached to it. While Charlie Brown and Snoopy are already represented in the itty-bittys stuffed line, of course, I believe that to get them in these particular costumes, you have …

Lets hold a panel to decide if two panels is enough

Normally, I don’t cover new coloring books on the blog – there’s just too many of them, and I don’t particularly collect them (although I do accumulate some), but AAUGH Blog reader John sent me this coloring book and while waiting for my first trick-or-treater of the evening, I just noticed …

A Charlie Brown Christmas keeps popping up!

The second (and not the last) of my new book editions of A Charlie Brown Christmas for this year is A Charlie Brown Christmas: A Hallmark Lighted Pop-up Book, available at better Hallmark stores now. Or soon. Mine didn’t have it on the shelf (yet?), but I ordered it online. This one …

This year’s entry has all of the dailies from 1950s. These books are not distributed through the standard book channels, which …

Recycled cookies!

Hey, I got the new Hallmark book Peanuts Favorite Christmas Cookies, only to find out that I already had it… it’s a reprint of the book Peanuts Christmas Cookie Set, which was supposed to come out in 2013 but finally came out in 2014, as a paperback with three cookie cutters (a …

The Masked Face of Snoopy

I now have the board book The Many Faces of Snoopy (not to be confused with the strip collection Many Faces of Snoopy, nor the strip collection The Many Faces of Snoopy.) It consists of eight two-page spreads, each looking at a different Snoopy persona, with text from Jason Cooper and illustrations by …

Many Faces of Snoopy

The new book Many Faces of Snoopy is a sort of book that we’ve seen pop up a few times, a strip collection focusing on Snoopy’s various personas. (That’s not a complaint; it’s a good idea, not everyone has all the old collections that I do already at hand, and with …

Losing 10 pounds, the Peanuts way!

The AAUGH.com Reference Library now has a copy of How I Lost 10 Pounds in 53 Years, the 2004 memoirs of comedienne Kaye Ballard. Now, Ballard may be best remembered as an actress in The Mothers-in-Law, a 1967-1969 sitcom brought by some of the key creative forces behind I Love Lucy. However, her …
