I had a friend that sat next to someone on a flight and when he asked the traditional "What do you do?" the guy answered "I draw pictures." Only after conversing a while did he realize he was speaking with Charles Schultz.

This is the 2nd title on Apple TV+ that’s genuinely got me excited (the 1st was Wolf Walkers). I always loved the Peanuts cartoons when I was younger. I hope Apple does more interesting things with the characters.

I too, love all Apple has been doing with the Peanuts characters-it has put them in the hands of writers who share the same vision and passion that Charles Schulz had in creating these comics.

Actually, the Peanuts strips were ALWAYS journeys of self-discovery!

Likewise - in loving Peanuts!

My oldest friend we called Charlie Brown as a nickname back in Gr 4 … only to realize by end of Gr 8 he was already going bald (genetics). In a strange way many of us - either by some physical features or by character traits loosely resembled a character in the show.

I also loved Spaceman Spiff and the rest of the Calvin & Hobbes cartoon strip as well every Saturday/Sunday morning newspapers. Gads! I actually just remembered I read newspapers!

I just watched a short about Mr Rogers speech accepting an Oscar before he passed made my shed a few tears - simply because of how insanely cynical this world, our lives has become. I recall first year in college feeling, actually hoping, there was something really dirty or wrong with Mr Rogers, cause nobody is that nice - and being happily disappointed in those thoughts.

This … is … a HUGE moment not just in history and the art of comic strips … but in humanit’s, human nature and how far we’ve fallen as a society in terms of kindness towards one another.
