    I guess it’s nice to see Peanuts getting more exposure, but would Charles Schulz want any of this? I’m not sure new Peanuts material should be released without Mr. Schulz approving it.

    I feel the same way. I think the new Peanuts material (such as the graphic novel accompanying the new DVD) has been beautifully done, but would it have been what Sparky wanted? It makes me feel slightly uneasy.
