Okay, I know we thought Stranger Things parodies had run their course long enough to give us some space for season 2, but this one might have been worth the wait. Eleven, Will and all your Stranger Things favorites go Peanuts for a Charlie Brown makeover.
Between the new television cartoon, last year's remarkable CGI movie, the new comics put out by Kaboom and the themed strip collections put out by Fantagraphics to supplement the The Complete Peanuts series, it's been a good time to be a fan of the work of Charles M.

Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn.

Charles Schulz's Peanuts is one of the most popular and influential newspaper comics of all time, running from 1950 until Schulz's death in 2000. Even in the years since that time, Peanuts has continued to run in nearly every major American newspaper in reruns, and thanks to animated specials, movies, and merchandising, Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus, Woodstock and the rest are familiar presences all across the world. In this video you can learn about good ol' Charlie Brown and the gang from their earliest days to the end of the strip and beyond.
As Charlie Brown and Snoopy are perhaps best known for their classic holiday special ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas,’ it only makes sense that the new ‘Peanuts’ trailer debuts with a very Christmas-y feel.

Though Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the gang are turning 62 this November 25, it's 2015's celebration that 'Peanuts' fans should anticipate. Peanuts Worldwide, the joint venture of Charles M. Schultz Creative Associates and Iconix Brand Group, Inc., is planning to bring these beloved characters to the big screen in a feature film event a couple years from now.
Jimmy Kimmel had David Alan Grier on his show Tuesday night and they took a moment to discuss 'Black History Month'.
Luckily they had a clip from a Charlie Brown special to help them out, because the 'Peanuts' gang really nailed it.
