It's a Podcast, Charlie Brown

As a kid, it was a good Saturday afternoon if I had a bowl of Cheetos and a collection of Peanuts comic strips in front of me. Charlie Brown and the gang were friends to me. (I especially identified with Linus.) I really liked the week-long story arcs and the brilliant mix of humor, frustration and perseverance of these lil' folks. And, honestly, I'm a little sad Shermie never took off as a main character. Animated Peanuts was great too. The airing of a Peanuts TV special was a big event in my house. I was pretty young, but I remember seeing RACE FOR YOUR LIFE, CHARLIE BROWN in 1977 in a movie theater. I know I watched A BOY NAMED CHARLIE BROWN over and over on cable. BON VOYAGE, CHARLIE BROWN (And Don't Come Back!) is a wonderful movie, animated or otherwise. And I don't think a year has gone by that I haven't watched the Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas specials. I pretty much have the dialogue memorized, much to the chagrin of my wife and kids. To date, Charlie Brown and the gang have appeared in five feature films and dozens of TV specials, including the series "This is America, Charlie Brown" and "The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show". And on this podcast, we're going to watch them all. We'll discover what we liked and what we didn't. What worked and what didn't. There are many layers to a Peanuts special. Even in two dimensions, these characters are fully fleshed-out humans - and one beagle - with all the fears, anxieties, joys and laughs we all experience. Let's explore those together.

Episode 74 is here with love. And it's no small thing! 

(Seriously, this thing is like two hours long. Get comfy.)

This month, we take a gander at the latest offerings from Apple TV+, Wildbrain and Peanuts Worldwide. First up: "It's the Small Things, Charlie Brown" in which Sally has dandelion-angst. Then we watch "To Mom (and Dad) With Love", in which everyone, especially Peppermint Patty, has Mother's Day angst. 

We also have another "Random Strip of the Month" and a "Peanuts by Schulz" episode. 

Also, if you haven't already, check out the bonus episode where I describe my thoughts after seeing a production of "Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead".

Thanks to Kevin McLeod at Incompetch.com for creative commons use of his songs "Mining by Moonlight" and "Bass Walker". 

Thanks to Nick Jones for the use of his song "25% Off".

Thanks to Sean Courtney for the "This Month in Peanuts History" theme.
