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 second half of our double-header finds Charlie Brown ringing in the new year burdened with that albatross of a novel "War and Peace", which he is assigned to read and report on over winter break in HAPPY NEW YEAR, CHARLIE BROWN from 1985 (though it actually first aired on January 1, 1986). Tolstoy! Musical Chair Death Matches! The Little Red-Haired Girl! Shots of root beer garnished with dog germs!
We've also got a review of a "Peanuts by Schulz" short called "A Hard Winter" and we've also got another "Random Strip of the Month" submission!
So grab your top hat and tails from Snoopy and join the fun!
It's the holiday season! If you're like me, you still sorta believe in Santa (come on, admit it), so I wrote a Santa Claus story for us adults. It's called IN THE ST. NICK OF TIME. I hope you'll check it out. Here's one of the places you can do that.
