New TV Specials Coming!

In the midst of the announcement that Apple TV+ has the rights to the classic specials, I almost overlooked their announcement of the quantity of NEW Peanuts material they’ll be bringing. I had assumed that the announcement of The Snoopy Show would mean no more Snoopy in Space, but wrong I am! A …

It’s Off the Network, Charlie Brown?

I’ve been getting email asking me about this year’s airing of It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, because it wasn’t listed as coming up on the ABC schedule. And I was checking that schedule just the other day, and it still wasn’t there… and usually, it airs once early in the …

Schulz’s Youth – still available!

I sometimes lament that Schulz’s Youth, the book I compiled as the most complete collection of Schulz’s cartoons for the Church of God, is out of print. This is, after all material that is mostly not in print anywhere. However, when I say that, I should remember that “out of print” …

It’s a song of a parody, not a parody of a song

I had never really looked into The Mad Show, a 1960s off-broadway musical hit based on Mad, the satirical comics magazine, but I happened to look at its Wikipedia page for some reason, and there I saw, in the song listings, “Misery Is…” Now, this isn’t the song that anyone talks about …
