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.

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.
