Snoopy to the Rescue!

The latest in the AMP series of strip collections for kids, Snoopy to the Rescue!, is not a Snoopy-specific collection, but rather a collection of circa-1969 strips, ones that were fairly recently reprinted in the papers. It keeps most of the features of the previous AMP collections – everything’s in color, …

After-Rats

So Yaolee Chen has followed up her Chinese book of Peanuts related text, Rats! (reviewed here) with Stories of Charlie, which appears to be another collection of Peanuts stories in prose, in Chinese. This is being published in the US by a Taiwanese woman living in the US; I’m dubious that it is properly …

Because Itty rhymes with Bitty, you see.

So I got my itty bittys Peanuts Easter Beagle Stuffed Animal and Storybook Set from Hallmark. And yes, as you see here, the itty bittys tag does keep Snoopy’s arm (well, leg… well, no, itty bittys don’t have legs) propped up. The storybook is an adaptation of the TV special… but it’s …

I’m Glad I Got A Letter From Me!

The fine folks at Escape Pod Comics in Huntington, New York got in a load of Hallmark minibooks, and among them was a copy of A Letter From Me, which was a hole in the AAUGH.com Reference Library. It’s a cute little storybook. Charlie Brown is trying to write a letter, …

The Peanuts Game

Back when I was working on Complete Peanuts 26, an eBay listing like this would lead me to fret. Sure, it’s clearly not lettered by Schulz, that’s visible even at this low resolution, but what if they had him draw a strip special for them and then change the dialogue? There …

Finally, a book about The Peanuts Gang!

Yes, I sacrifice much for you, my dear AAUGH Blog readers! I actually ordered myself a copy of the book on this bold new Peanuts Gang, finally finding a replacement for those characters from the last century! No more Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty. Now, The Peanuts Gang (and it’s italicized, always italicized) is …

Zoom In On Amazing Author Charles Schulz

I sadly actually want to get all of the biographies of Charles Schulz aimed at children. These things, almost always issued as part of a large set of biographies aimed to fill library space and be the easiest thing to write a book review about, tend to be expensive, and …

Peanuts Sunday Calendar

For those who want Peanuts strip reprints in every corner of their lives, there’s this Peanuts Sundays Calendar available through Cafe Press. Now, if you’re hoping for a calendar in which every day is Sunday, so you never have to go to work and you can show people what you mean when …

Snoopy’s Masterpiece

Among the other things that my pal David Folkman has worked on is The Comics: An American Tradition, a newspaper supplement from (if I’m dating this correctly) the early 1970s. This 16 page newsprint item has reprints of comics from across the era of strips (including a 1951 Peanuts strip), with short …
