A Peanuts Valentine

There are now two books available called A Peanuts Valentine. There’s the strip collection, which came out last year, and now there’s the kids’ book. This is an odd item, a storybook with a cardboard envelope attached to each spread. Each envelope contains a cardboard object related to the tale… …

An early Charlie Brown Christmas celebration

When we talk about A Charlie Brown Christmas, we certainly recognize that after running for 40 years, it’s now considered a classic. However, there’s a thing about Christmas “classics”; they are often not recognized for their greatness when they first arise. There is a lot of history showing how Christmas …

Bleah!

You can see here my new favorite Peanuts book title, the German book BLEAH! We don’t have a copy in the AAUGH.com reference library yet, alas. What we have added to the AAUGH.com reference library is the 1958 edition of Txweco, the yearbook of Texas Wesleyan College. Now, many student …

Tonight is this year’s U.S. airing of A Charlie Brown Christmas on ABC. That makes it a good day to watch TV, of course, but it also makes it a good day for me to talk about some upcoming releases: two more animated Peanuts DVDs. Now, the movies are finally …

Nat Completes a Set

Complete Peanuts 4 Review

If you asked me what my favorite Peanuts daily and Sunday of all time were, well, my response would depend on when you asked me. But the odds are pretty good that I’d talk choose the Sunday strip where Linus builds a big snow dinosaur, and the daily where he …

Back in 2000, a publishing arm of Barnes & Noble put out a discount hardcover edition of Peanuts Treasury, for $9.98. Eventually, it was also available through other retailers. And then, in 2002, Barnes & Noble put out a discount softcover edition of Peanuts Treasury, for $9.95. That one remained …

While it’s not shipping from bookstores yet, I can tell you that The Complete Peanuts Volume 4 does exist – I have a copy sitting right here. Unfortunately, I’m still under the weather and can’t go through it and do a cogent review just yet (although I will note that …

Getting Snoopy’s gourd

I now have my copy of Baby Snoopy’s Pumpkin. I laughed, I cried, it changed my life. Oh, okay, it’s just a silly kids’ book, and the ventral mystery of it (what is that odd thing Baby Snoopy is growing?) is kinda given away by the title. But each of …
