Theyre Playing Your Song, Charlie Brown by Charles M. SchulzRead in memory of my sister, a big Snoopy fan, who passed away 12 years ago today.
Another winning Peanuts collection, this features selected cartoons from “Win A Few, Lose A Few Charlie Brown vol 2” and was published in 1979 (the Coronet edition I read) with comics from 1973 and 1974. Running from just before Christmas and into a New Year, this is amusing (Snoopy features a lot) and quite melancholic, especially when Charlie Brown struggles to understand the need to have a snow league that prohibits kids randomly building snowmen in their back garden (“why can’t kids just do things on their own?”). My highlights include the rosebud spoiler; Woodstock and his tree full of Christmas stockings; Snoopy hugging Woodstock, “Merry Christmas, little friend of friends”; Sally and schoolwork; Snoopy writing a horror story “The Monster And The Bunnies”; Lucy not buying Snoopy’s book but offering to take a free authors copy; Snoopy suffering from anxiety; Rerun on Mrs Van Pelt’s bike (“she’s getting better!” says Linus); Snoopy taking a downtown bus to chase cars because his neighbourhood is quiet and Marcie breaking it to Peppermint Patty that Snoopy isn’t ‘a funny looking kid with a big nose’ - “A beagle?” asks an incredulous Patty. There’s also a lovely little arc (which apparently ran from 29th December 1973 through to 3rd January 1974) where Snoopy and Woodstock hide under a blanket from a “strange light” in the sky, which Linus informs them is comet Kohoutek (which was real). Amusing, poignant and as warmly nostalgic as you could want, this is a great read and I would highly recommend it.

Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and Peppermint Patty will return to the silver screen in November , timing that coincides with the 50th anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas , perhaps the most beloved cartoon in television history. But how will the new feature film — with 3-D, CG animation — compare to the hand-drawn charms of that small-screen classic? Or to the Charles Schulz comic strip that possessed an especially elusive brand of whimsy? That changed, of course, and the strip became the untouchable but beloved titan of its medium appearing in 2, newspapers in 21 languages reaching a collective readership north of million. Schulz died in the hours before his farewell strip was delivered to doorsteps, adding a poignant ending to his career.
