Time Warner’s Boomerang network will begin airing the animated adventures of Charles Schulz’ “Peanuts” characters starting May 9. The shorts will air daily at 11:30am. However, the characters may not look exactly how fans of the classic cartoons (like A Charlie Brown Christmas) remember.
By the end of its run in 2000, Peanuts was an institution. It had become an omnipresent part of American culture, and that’s not a compliment.
What if Indiana Jones met every challenge with a cry of “Good grief!”? Artist Chris Thornley, also known as Raid 71, casts the Peanuts gang as characters from the Indiana Jones films.
I consider myself lucky. I managed to make it through the first weekend of December relatively unscathed by bad Christmas music—I didn't even hear the "Do They Know It's Christmas?" remake, which I consider a victory. But there's one album you could put on repeat from now until December 25 and I wouldn't mind one bit: …
It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown has been airing on television since 1966, and the folks behind Mystery Science Theater 3000 and RiffTrax decided it was due for an update. They add their snarky audio to a few scenes from the classic Halloween special.
Here's how Charles Schulz, the trailblazing cartoonist who created Peanuts, drew Charlie Brown. I love his sure strokes and how he builds out the character but most importantly, I love how he's done in less than half a minute.
An alien intelligence gets a hold of a book of Peanuts comics and misinterprets them as a protocol for life. Gradually, the intelligence spreads its misshapen imitations of Snoopy and Charlie Brown across the universe like a cancer, until all of existence resembles Charles Schulz's work filtered through a horrific…
When it comes to wild things in the woods, Max has nothing on Princess Mononoke. In this sweet mashup by Justin Hillgrove, the various spirits and creatures from Studio Ghibli's films pay tribute to San, the wildest of them all.
What would the holidays be without a Charlie Brown special? Every year you can count on the Peanuts gang showing up at Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. But what about corporate America's newest and most profitable holiday? Like it or not, Black Friday is here to stay, and Jimmy Kimmel has decided that it …
Once upon a time, it seems Peanuts creator Charles Schulz (edit: maybe) and Marvel cartoonist John Romita, Sr. drew a pair of
collaborative comic strips featuring the Peanuts cast and Spider-Man. In one, Spidey faces off against Snoopy's WWI ace; in the other, he helps Charlie Brown finally kick that football.
There was a delightful story floating around this week about a humongous poop tattoo rendered on some drunken cheating girlfriend's back. It's fake, of course. It's always fake. The internet is Lucy holding a football, and even in the weird online world of immediate and crippling skepticism, we're always sure that…
If Charles Schulz had written about a time-hopping Gallifreyian instead of a chronically depressed little boy, chances are his artwork would look like Larry Wentzel's. There's no Snoopy as K-9, but who wouldn't want to see A Weeping Angel Christmas?
