Violet was the original mean girl of the Peanuts gang. She was even the first character to call Charlie Brown a blockhead. Her main weapon was social exclusion: “I’m having a party, and YOU’RE not invited!” She was, on the surface, an unrepentant bully and one of the least likable characters in Charles Schulz’s strip.…
Charlie Brown is hesitant. Marcie is shy. Lucy is cruel. Schroeder is aloof. But Franklin is just…perfect.
For many years, I thought that Marcie, the bespectacled, book-obsessed girl in Peanuts, was Asian American. It wasn’t just about how badly I wanted an Asian American in my favorite comic strip; it was about how much I identified with her. Through Marcie’s various story arcs, Charles Schulz depicted the struggles of a…
For years, parents have been told to withhold peanut products from their children until the age of three. In a total flip-flop, the NIH has issued new guidelines recommending that babies be fed peanuts early in their lives to prevent the onset of dangerous allergies.
Aside from Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty is the most well-thought out, deeply characterized member of the Peanuts gang. Charles Schulz told some heartbreaking stories about unrequited love, single parenthood, gender norms, and deep-seated insecurities—themes that did not normally appear on the Sunday funnies page.…
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.
The future Transformers films will maintain one key element of the previous films. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 may have cast a new superhero. You might have to wait a bit longer than usual to see new Game of Thrones. Plus, high-res images from Suicide Squad and The Force Awakens. To me, my Spoilers!
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.
The first trailer for The Peanuts Movie was a bit jarring. All our favorite characters were there, along with the tone that made the franchise so popular. But the CG was so different and musical interludes so cringe-worthy. Now, a new trailer finds a balance of all that and ends up looking pretty great.
It was one of the country’s most beloved comic strips, but did anyone ever actually find the Peanuts gang entertaining? Of course not. But if Charles Schulz had taken a page from Takara Tomy and turned Snoopy into a transforming truck, his comic would have been even more enjoyable than Calvin & Hobbes.
The next Toy Story won't continue the story of the first three. There's another tease of Jared Leto's version of the Joker. Jeph Loeb says Marvel's Netflix shows won't cross over with the films just yet. John Barrowman gets a new series. Plus, Flash set pictures tease the return of Reverse Flash. Spoilers Now!
There is a new Peanuts movie coming on November 2015. I don't know if it's going to be good or not, but technically it looks like a pretty nice translation of Schulz's graphic language into the 3D world. The trailer below just seems like the classic Snoopy and Woodstock fantasy silliness.
Perhaps eventually all your childhood favorites will come back CGI'd, and that's okay! At least as far as the upcoming Peanuts movie is concerned. Because as you can see in the latest trailer for the November 2015 movie, the look is a little different, but Charlie Brown's probably still gonna wuff a punt, and adults…
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: …
We don't know where to stand on this CG animated Peanuts movie trailer. True, they got the Snoopy laugh down as well as the adorable Red Baron action. But then the clip breaks for a rockin' music moment and we broke out into anxiety hives.
Same Snoopy, same familiar "Linus and Lucy" theme music, but the look is a little bit different. Your old favorite cartoon, Peanuts, is hitting the big screen for the first time in 2015, and here's the first trailer. How do you feel about the gang going 3D CGI?
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.
The first trailer for the CG animated Peanuts movie has arrived, and the good news it that the animators clearly tried hard to match Charles Schulz's classic drawing style and characters in the movie's 3D models. The bad news is everything else.
