Exclusive Preview: Go To Summer Camp With Charlie Brown For The ‘Peanuts’ 65th Anniversary Special

KaBOOM_Peanuts_25_hed

This year marks the 65th anniversary of Charles Schulz' Peanuts, the syndicated comic strip widely regarded as not just one of the greatest works of its kind, but as one of the great works of American comedy in the 20th century. For an extraordinary fifty-year run, Schulz told the story of neurotic schoolyard philosopher Charlie Brown, his dreamer beagle Snoopy, and their eternally young cohort of broadly-drawn kids with surprisingly complicated souls.

It's been fifteen years since Schulz ended his run, which means there are kids Chuck's age who were born years after Peanuts. Thanks to Boom Studios' KaBoom imprint, these kids aren't growing up in a world where Peanuts is the sole preserve of nostalgic grown-ups. KaBoom has been reprinting Schulz's stories alongside new strips by today's creators, all aimed at a contemporary audience of kids. The 25th issue, out next week, celebrates 65 years of Peanuts with an ad-free 32-page original story by Paige Braddock and Vicki Scott, and KaBoom have given us an exclusive preview to share with our readers.

‘Peanuts’ Movie Teaser, Images Promise All The Snoopy You Could Want And ‘No Twerking’

Peanuts movie CGI main
Blue Sky Studios

Charles Schulz's much beloved, long-running comic strip Peanuts is coming to theaters in a new, all CGI film in November 2015, and fans got their first look Tuesday via a few images and a 60-second teaser from Blue Sky Studios.

From the looks of it, fans should probably feel pretty encouraged. Not only do the movie characters look a whole heck of a lot like Schulz's comic designs (or at least 3D versions thereof), but the teaser indicates that the unforgettable Vince Guaraldi music that accompanied Peanuts TV specials for decades will be used. Check out the teaser and images after the jump!

This Charming Charlie: ‘Peanuts’ Remixed With Morrissey Lyrics

tumblr_mracmfSbIi1seji43o1_1280

 

Kudos to Lauren LoPrente for connecting the pronounced themes of failure, unrequited love, and existential dread that defines so much of Charles Schulz's legendary comic strip Peanuts with the similarly dour words of the great Smiths lyricist Morrissey. Named after The Smith's "This Charming Man," LoPrente's This Charming Charlie blog draws from Morrissey's limitless supply of loathing and depression and applies those lyrics to some of Schulz's most iconic layouts and poses. Its a good laugh, and you can see some of our favorites along with their musical sources below.
