Charlie Brown makes a come back


Recommended Posts

No, no, no! I hate Peanuts. I always felt like Charlie Brown growing up and I do not need to re-live my childhood. Plus, there is much better stuff if you want to watch something that depressing.



Lol,, that's too funny.


I forgot how depressing Charlie Brown was until I watched it again with my young kids.

I'm pretty sure Charles M. Schulz would have loved to be able to utilise modern animation programs.


But there is still something to be said for the 1/4 - page (or whatever) drawings.

The 'video' footage runs like a film - which is fine.

But when Chuck needed to tell his story with perhaps only 6 frames' worth of space you can be sure he put all his creative genius into what needed to be shown in the 'boxes' and what could safely be omitted.

Those hand-drawn individual 'snapshots' are (IMHO) the pure undiluted essence of 'Peanuts'.


But if the new stuff raises awareness to his genius then why not? This is the Modern World.
