Cartoonist Charles M. Shulz would have turned 100 this week. He was the creator of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and all of The Peanuts gang.
I grew up watching The Charlie Brown holiday specials on TV. A few years ago I bought a DVD that includes several of the holiday specials. I’m glad I did because they don’t show these programs on TV anymore. I love to play the DVD but I kind of miss the yearly commercials.
We have a special affection for his cartoons in Minnesota. There are statues of the characters all over the Twin Cities Metro. It borders on mass hysteria.
To mark the occasion here is a great fan video. We play this song all the time on the live stream. The Great Luke Ski is an amazing parody artist. Everyone should check out his bandcamp site.
