The “A Charlie Brown Christmas” pre-screener?

While I was doing research on the book adaptations of A Charlie Brown Christmas for yesterday’s post, I was delving into online newspaper archives – which is a great black hole for me, drawing me in and destroying the rest of my world. I get off on tangents, investigate odd …

“Will Ye No Quarterback Again, Charlie Brown?”

I think it’s great that Boom! is publishing a graphic novel adapting the never-produced Scotland Bound, Charlie Brown.
