Charles Schulz still 3rd top earning dead celebrity

Forbes released it’s annual report on the top earning dead celebrities. Charles Schulz retains his third place ranking. Interestingly the first eight spots are unchanged from last year, but good ol’ Dr. Suess AKA Theodor Geisel moved from 10th to 9th place and tied with Bruce Lee, Steve McQueen and Betty Page.

From Forbes:

Cartoonist Charles Schulz ranks third with $40 million. Schulz?s Peanuts characters have never really gone away thanks to online versions of the comic strip, successful merchandising and the ubiquitous MetLife MET +0.61% ads featuring Snoopy and the gang. But now the Peanuts are being introduced to a whole new generation with an upcoming 3-D movie from Fox studios. The movie is slated to be in theaters in November 2015. If it?s a hit, expect Shulz?s earning to climb the following year.

It’s better than being dead last.
