I enjoyed listening to the interview, but didn’t get on with my question. I was curious if any of the guests had an opinion about the documentary, “Good Ol’ Charles Schulz” which aired on PBS several years ago. I have a DVD from the filmmaker and feel it is a balanced and heartfelt treatment of Charles Schulz, the man.

I never met Sparky, but I had the good pleasure to meet Jean at the recent Festival of Cartoon Arts. I think she may be the reason everyone liked Sparky. ;)
