What is and is not exclusive at that Peanuts offsite

As I mentioned a couple posts back, the Super7 store in San Diego will be doing a Peanuts pop-up within the shop starting on the Friday of San Diego con. The earliest release made it sound like this was just a launch for their products, but (alas for those who …

The Mystery of the Daily Dozen

I’ve written before, albeit not recently, about Snoopy’s Daily Dozen, a 1960s wall chart that had the Peanuts kids demonstrating various exercises.

One of the nifty things about how the San Diego Comic-Con has grown over its 50 years of existence (I’ve only attended… oh, probably 30. Egad.) is that the convention has outgrown the convention center and spills out for many blocks around. Various companies and groups, not wanting to pay …

A Sunny Day coming in December?

The last month of the year will bring Woodstock’s Sunny Day, a board-shaped bird book… excuse me, bird-shaped board book… written by Patty Michaels and drawn by Vicki Scott. “It’s a beautiful Spring day, and Woodstock doesn’t want to just hang around Snoopy’s doghouse. He convinces his best friend that they …

An unexpected Snoopy sighting

So I’m sitting here in pain from wiping out on my bicycle today, looking for some comfort viewing on TV. I start streaming Cybill, the 1990s sitcom created by Chuck Lorre as a vehicle for Cybill Shepherd. In episode 2, Cybill-the-character is sitting with her ex-husband talking about their impending grandparenthood, …
