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.

Remember how when we were kids, we'd celebrate New Year's Eve at, like, 5 p.m. because midnight was too far away? Episode 68 of IT'S A PODCAST, CHARLIE BROWN is a little like that.

Even though this episode drops December 15, we're going to a New Year's Eve party! We've got the BRAND NEW special "Snoopy Presents: For Auld Lang Syne". How new? So new, I had to cram my review of it into the rest of the pre-recorded episode to get it out to you!

Then we check out S1, episode 11 of "The Snoopy Show", a "Peanuts by Schulz" short called "On the Campaign Trail" and enjoy another "Random Strip of the Month". 

Pop open a root beer and join the party!
