Your second chance to buy Peanuts!

Remember not that long ago, when Iconix was selling of their portion of the Peanuts rights, and you were digging through your sofa cushions hoping to find enough money? And the DHX Media went and bought out the rights and you felt that dadgummit, now you’d never own Peanuts? Well, …
