Whether through magic, science, or pure imagination, many of our favorite storytellers love to create things with small exteriors that are disproportionately huge inside. Here are ten things from movies, TV, and literature that are “bigger on the inside.” [Read more…]
Here’s another amusing mashup for you guys. This time, it’s for those of you who cannot get enough of Doctor Who. Now I don’t know if people who are into Doctor Who are the same types who like Peanuts, but Larry Wentzel ((Via Larry Wentzel)) obviously thinks there is something about putting them together. He says “I imagine after the 11th Doctor was put in the Pandorica, the villains broke out into a little celebratory dance. Apologies to Charles Schulz and the Peanuts characters.”
He sure has a rich imagination, and I don’t think that Charles Schulz and the Peanuts characters would mind this depiction. Not at all. Me, I think the characters are edgier, and if Peanuts tattoos are your thing, these would make for a cool ink.
Doctor Who/Peanuts experts – what’s your judgement?
Who doesn’t know Peanuts or it’s main character Charlie Brown? They never bore, each year without missing they are on TV for the holidays in the U.S. The comics are full of imparting wisdom’s.
I found nine tattoos good enough to be posted here. There are lots of tattoo photos but personally I find only a handful good. People have different tastes, but some tattoos we can all agree are ugly. I choose nine tattoos, mostly Charlie Brown that are nicely done. [Read more…]
In 1977 David Desmond wrote a letter to the creator of Peanuts, Charles M. Schulz. He wrote Mr. Schulz to tell him how much he enjoys Peanuts and to ask how Mr. Schulz managed to create a comic for kids that also appeals to adults.
Much to his surprise Charles M. Schulz wrote him back with a surprising statement, that Peanuts is drawn for adults from the point of view of a child. According to Mr. Schulz a lot of the dialogue is beyond a child’s comprehension. If you are familiar with Peanuts you know a lot of the dialogue is about life and life lessons.
As for David Desmond it was amazing to receive a reply to his letter, which indeed is amazing. It’s not often you hear from famous creators of cartoons, comics and movies who take the time to decently answer back a letter. Although they do get a lot of fan mail of which I’m sure a few are worth answering back, like this one.
I can still recall the feelings of amazement and excitement that I experienced when I received this letter. Even then I understood that the production of a daily comic strip could be quite demanding, so for Charles M. Schulz to have take the time to reply to my letter made it that much more special.
As for the letter, I totally dig the yellow with Snoopy, his typewrite and the address: Number One Snoopy Place. It makes me as a Calvin and Hobbes fan wonder how Bill Watterson’s letters would be if he wasn’t such a private person and wrote to his fans.
