EPISODE 20: I WANT A DOG FOR CHRISTMAS, CHARLIE BROWN & HAPPY NEW YEAR, CHARLIE BROWN

12/15/2017
More
Should old acquaintance be forgot? No way! There's a party in Peanuts Town! First up this month, from 2003, the Van Pelt's youngest sibling Rerun just wants a dog for Christmas in the appropriately titled I WANT A DOG FOR CHRISTMAS, CHARLIE BROWN. Could Spike be the answer to his canine dreams? Maybe, IF Rerun can survive the rides on the back of Mom's bike and, in a frighteningly timely B-plot, allegations of harassment of a little girl with pigtails. Yes, really. Merry Christmas! The...

EPISODE 19: A CHARLIE BROWN THANKSGIVING & THIS IS AMERICA: THE MUSIC AND HEROES OF AMERICA

11/15/2017
More
EPISODE 19 has it all! Dinner AND a show! Dinner is courtesy of the 1973 holiday classic A CHARLIE BROWN THANKSGIVING. Peppermint Patty invites herself, Marcie and Franklin to Chuck's house for Thanksgiving, forcing Charlie Brown to face his crippling fear of buttering toast. Snoopy gets his butt handed to him by a lawn chair. Woodstock engages in flagrant bird cannibalism. Ah, holidays! The "show" part of the episode comes courtesy of the "MUSIC AND HEROES OF AMERICA" installment of the...

EPISODE 18: GOOD GRIEF! A CHAT WITH AUTHOR ANDREW FARAGO, PLUS WHAT A NIGHTMARE, CHARLIE BROWN

10/15/2017
More
The usual giddy joy at dropping a new episode of the podcast is dampened a bit this time with the news of the loss of Charles M. Schulz's home and Craig Schulz's home in the horrendous wildfires ravaging California. While the property (including much valuable Schulz memorabilia) was lost, thankfully, Jean Schulz was evacuated safely. Our hearts go out to the Schulzes and all of California. But the show goes on. And it's a good one. Episode 18 features my conversation with Andrew Farago,...

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT THE OCTOBER 2017 EPISODE

9/19/2017
More
So, hey, remember at the end of the September episode I said the rundown for the October episode was subject to change? Well, it changed. Andrew Farago - author, comics historian, curator of the Cartoon Art Museum - agreed to chat with me about his upcoming book THE COMPLETE PEANUTS FAMILY ALBUM: THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO CHARLES M. SCHULZ'S CLASSIC CHARACTERS. And I am thrilled to share that conversation with you in October. But, good grief! What does that mean for THE SCHEDULE! Hold on to...

Episode 17: It's Magic, Charlie Brown and The Charlie Brown & Snoopy Show (ep. 6)

9/15/2017
More
I demand absolute silence. I, the Great Podcastini, will now guess what number you are thinking of... It's 17! As in episode 17 of the podcast! Now, pick a card! Do it! *Gazes magically at you while I wait* Is this your card? The queen of hearts! I knew it was because the little heart is bent. I learned that trick from Marcie. (You'll understand that once you listen to the episode.) Until then, just bask in my powers over the dark arts. In IT'S MAGIC, CHARLIE BROWN, which first aired...

Episode 16: Life is a Circus, Charlie Brown & This is America, Charlie Brown: Building the Transcontinental Railroad

8/15/2017
More
In episode 16, we ride the rails in the 2/10/89 edu-tainment THIS IS AMERICA CHARLIE BROWN: BUILDING THE TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILROAD. Want to know the saga of one of American history's biggest construction projects, a story about literally uniting a post-Civil war country? Then hop aboard! As the train pulls away from the station, we jump on to run away with Snoopy as he joins the circus in the 10/24/80 LIFE IS A CIRCUS, CHARLIE BROWN. Forbidden passion! The lure of fame! Popcorn wantonly...

EPISODE 15: SHE'S A GOOD SKATE, CHARLIE BROWN and THE CHARLIE BROWN & SNOOPY SHOW (Ep. 5)

7/15/2017
More
This month in episode 15 of the podcast we wade into the Peanuts neighborhood kiddie pool to take on the burning question: If a Peanuts character says "Rats" alone in the woods, does it make a sound? Also, we explore the mysteries of why Peppermint Patty is sneaking out in the early morning hours, why is crime so rampant in Peanuts Town, and where did Marcie get an automatic duck plucker? The episodes this month are: She's a Good Skate, Charlie Brown, originally aired 2/25/80; episode 5...

Episode 14: You're the Greatest, Charlie Brown & This is America, Charlie Brown: The Great Inventors

6/15/2017
More
MAKE THIS PODCAST "GREAT" AGAIN The painstaking production and scrutinizing the schedule that went into developing this theme for this month's episode, #14 for those of you keeping score at home, is staggering. Both episodes have "great" in their titles. From 1979, we've got "You're the Greatest, Charlie Brown" and from 1989, "This is America: The Great Inventors". That's what you call synchronicity.* *No, it's not.** **It's just a random coincidence.*** ***This is the last...

Episode 13: Good Grief! It's my chat with Peanuts Historian Nat Gertler!

5/15/2017

Good grief! Another month has gone by already? We've got a first for the podcast on this lucky episode 13...a guest! Nat Gertler is a respected author (The Peanuts Collection: Treasures from the World's Most Beloved Comic Strip; The Snoopy Treasures), publisher and Peanuts historian. And he was nice enough to give a bit of his time, wit and wisdom to the podcast. Thanks, Nat! This month, we also watch and discuss two of the 2008 Warner Premiere Motion Comics, animations of 1964 Peanuts...

Episode 12: IT'S THE EASTER BEAGLE, CHARLIE BROWN and THE CHARLIE BROWN & SNOOPY SHOW (EP. 4)

4/15/2017
More
It's all about the eggs, y'all! In the 1974 special IT'S THE EASTER BEAGLE, CHARLIE BROWN, the gang is obsessed with the looming specter of Easter and living in existential fear they won't be buried alive in an avalanche of eggs. Everyone, that is, except Linus who takes a break from obsessing about the Great Pumpkin to obsess about a thing called "the Easter Beagle". (And Sally calls him on it.) Meanwhile, Marcie, apparently an Easter neophyte, cluelessly lays waste to scores of...

Episode 11: A BOY NAMED CHARLIE BROWN

A B-O-Y N-A-M-E-D C-H-A-R-L-I-E B-R-U-H-N Darn it! I just lost the National Spelling Bee! AUGHHHHHHHH! Well, at least I can empathize with Charlie Brown's trials and tribulations in his first big screen outing, A BOY NAMED CHARLIE BROWN, a box office hit in 1969. Charlie Brown has a shot at shedding his "failure face" when he wins the school spelling bee and heads off to the - gasp! - National Spelling Bee! In the B plot, Linus is separated from his trusty blanket. It's not pretty. So,...

Episode 10: You're in Love, Charlie Brown & A Charlie Brown Valentine

2/15/2017
More
Ah, love...life's sweetest reward. It's an open smile, on a friendly shore... Wait. That's "The Love Boat". Maybe we'll cover the Peanuts/Love Boat crossover in another episode (we wish). For now, we're right here in Peanuts Town where love pretty much always goes unrequited, especially for Charlie Brown. And this month's episodes don't disappoint. So pull up a heart-shaped box of candy and join us for 1967's "You're in Love, Charlie Brown" and, from 2002, "A Charlie Brown...

EPISODE 9: You're a Good Sport, Charlie Brown and This is America, Charlie Brown: The Smithsonian & the Presidency

1/15/2017
More
This month, the podcast is all about muddy messes - both on the motocross track and in the hallowed halls of the presidency. With the American presidential inauguration looming as this episode drops, we check out another installment of "This is America, Charlie Brown" from 1989 called "The Smithsonian and the Presidency". And we also look at "You're a Good Sport, Charlie Brown" because motocross is the sport that's sweeping the nation...in 1975. Apparently. This month's "Peanuts by...

EPISODE 8: A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS

12/15/2016

CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE...HAPPINESS AND CHEER! Well, here it is. Episode 8 has dropped faster than Santa coming down your chimney. For many, it's not Christmas until "A Charlie Brown Christmas" appears on their screens. Here at the podcast, we feel the same. We do a deep dive into the 1965 classic that almost didn't happen. Is the special more of a spectacle like a great, big, shiny aluminum Christmas tree, or is it more of an unassuming little twig of a tree that, with a little love,...

Episode 7: You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown & This is America, Charlie Brown: The Mayflower Voyagers

11/15/2016

November! America is busy gorging itself on turkey gravy while celebrating/mourning the recent U.S. elections (you might have heard about that) and, of course, giving thanks for all that we have, even if that's a little harder these days. This month, we're watching YOU'RE NOT ELECTED, CHARLIE BROWN from 1972 and THIS IS AMERICA, CHARLIE BROWN: THE MAYFLOWER VOYAGERS from 1988. Grab another slice of pumpkin pie and give us a listen, won't you? My thanks to Kevin McLeod at Incompetech.com...

This month, we have a spooktacular treat for your trick-or-pod bag! Our focus is the 1966 classic IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN CHARLIE BROWN and an episode of the 1983 series THE CHARLIE BROWN & SNOOPY SHOW. It's the Great Pumpkin's 50th anniversary. Good grief! Get yourself to the most sincere pumpkin patch you can find (take your pod-player with you, of course). My thanks to Kevin McLeod at Incompetech.com for creative commons use of his songs "Bass Walker" and "Mining by Moonlight". Thanks...

This month, we take a look at the 1971 Peanuts special "Play It Again, Charlie Brown" and another episode of the 1983 TV series "The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show". Beethoven in a spray can, blue security blankets that are actually GREEN(???), Schroeder living in a house with blood-red interior and being totally cool with it. What in the WORLD is going on with these episodes? Join us and we'll see if we can figure it all out. My thanks to Kevin McLeod at Incompetech.com for creative...

Epiosode 1: Charlie Brown's All-Stars & The Wright Brothers at Kitty Hawk

5/15/2016

Welcome to episode one of a new, monthly podcast which really just amounts to an excuse for me to rewatch dozens of classic Peanuts specials and films. This month, we discuss "Charlie Brown's All-Stars", which was the 1966 follow-up to the instant classic "A Charlie Brown Christmas." Does it honor it's predecessor? Then, we watch episode 3 of the 1988 series "This is America, Charlie Brown" and learn things. In a cartoon! Madness! My thanks to Henry Pope for the use of his "Linus & Lucy"...
