Happiness is a Warm Blanket by Charlie Brown

This Easter weekend, I saw for the very first time a Peanuts Gang hour-long cartoon titled “Happiness is a Warm Blanket.” How I knew it was Peanuts Gang is because I had (hopefully until now) a stuffed toy named Snoopy given by my aunt many years ago. Peanuts Gang is the name of a group of children, including Snoopy and the small yellow bird named Woodstock whose cartoon series I found in Philippine print newspapers, which I found out later on it was made possible through international syndication.

To give you a brief background, the Peanuts Gang was created by Charles M. Schulz who loved to draw when he was a kid and managed to make his work known worldwide through United Features Syndicate. Here’s a Wikipedia entry about him.
In New Zealand and other countries, at least according to my partner, the cartoon is marketed under Charlie Brown, hence the title of the blog post.

The story centers around Linus and his security blanket, and how Lucy tried to remove it from him. Here’s a video link of the cartoon, courtesy of Daily Motion.

There were moments in the cartoon where it was really funny, especially when a few of them were flipping, Snoopy looking for opportunities to snap Linus’ blanket out of him. I’m really glad to see this on TV. Even though I’m a woman, this cartoon makes the inner kid in me get excited.

I had a look at the websites below for more information, and am amazed they have a museum for him and his cartoons. Also very excited they have items for sale. I might buy a few for myself.

I would really love to visit the Schulz Museum soon, and so am putting it out there to the Universe so it will happen.
