peanuts will always be one of my favorite things in the world, and one of those things that completely makes me feel no matter how cynical i get.

i grew up owning 2 beagles named lucy and snoopy.

i can't understand who would ironically enjoy peanuts. the older you get, the better they get.

when i first starting dating my most recent ex, she went with my to visit my parents' house for the first time and saw my bookshelf full of peanuts collections. she asked me about it and i distinctly remember getting a lump in my throat talking about why peanuts meant so much to me.

it's amazing how it manages to be cynical, sweet, honest, optimistic, and pessimistic all at the same time.

Yeah Peanuts was great. Nothing to have to ironically enjoy about it at all.

I wish I could find the actual string of comics this is based on but this cartoon of it is pretty accurate I think. That story was so great.

Matt Groening has said tons of times what a big influence Peanuts was on him and especially on Life in Hell.

Peanuts had such a dark undercurrent to it and a lot of sharp social satire while also coming out pretty optimistic most of the time. One of the greatest American pieces of art of the 20th century.

i love so much just how old so many still-relevant (sorta) staples of american pop-culture are

peanuts is 62 years old
superman is 74 years old
mickey mouse is 85 years old
charlie chaplin's film career is 100 years old


batman was created 73 years ago and over the past seven years was the focus of one of the biggest blockbuster series in movie history. that's amazing to me

Wait'll they make "modern-day" interpretations of these things in a few more decades.

didn't schulz do a pretty good job securing the rights so peanuts wouldn't be fucked with? i remember hearing once that after his death they could only make new specials if they were based directly on the comic strip, but maybe that was just a rumor.

have had that schulz biography from a few years back sitting on my shelf for ages, thread might be the inspiration i need to finally start it.

yeah, he handed over all of the rights to his children who have been incredibly guarded about letting anyone touch it.

the biography is really great. it's a great life story, but it also does an incredibly job explaining why the strip was so great and you'll look at it differently than you did before.

I was actually kind of wondering how it was that we haven't seen a live-action Peanuts movie or something. Thank fucking god. I still expect something like that in my lifetime but I'd like to see it put off as long as possible. His kids are better than Dr. Seuss' money-grubbing whore wife.

That's a really cool point. Never looked at it like that.

Craig and I had a similar conversation when we visited Graceland. He just doesn't see how it will stay relevant for future generations.

The pastor at my church growing up would reference Peanuts almost every week.
