Canada-based kids entertainment company DHX Media has recently inked an agreement that secures the rights to the entertainment division of Iconix Brand Group, which in turn gives them an 80% controlling interest in Peanuts (the remaining 20% remains with creator Charles Schulz’ estate) and 100% of Strawberry Shortcake. The transaction is priced at a whopping $345 million USD and is expected to close on or around June 30.

The new deal bolsters DHX Media’s already impressive library of content, adding more than 340 half hours more of proprietary content that can be used across the company’s wide range of territories and channels, as well as feed potential new productions across different platforms.

“Peanuts is one of the world’s greatest entertainment brands, with a tremendous global legacy of comics, animated content and consumer products reaching back almost 70 years. We are thrilled by the opportunity to welcome Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the entire Peanuts gang into our family of leading kids’ properties, including Teletubbies, Inspector Gadget, Caillou, Degrassi and others,” said Dana Landry, CEO of DHX Media.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is getting ready to release a brand-spanking new animated collection from their new Peanuts cable TV series.

Peanuts by Schulz: Snoopy Tales will allow fans to experience Peanuts like never before – all the warmth, wit, and humor of Schulz’ body of work, with stories from the original, print comic strips rendered through beautifully animated vignettes.

“Consumers today may not remember that Peanuts originated as a comic strip. Peanuts by Schulz: Snoopy Tales has combined two wonderful mediums, print comic strips and cutting-edge animation to create a really unique Peanuts experience,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation Marketing. She added, “Peanuts by Schulz: Snoopy Tales takes us back to the origins of Charles Schulz’s remarkable work. No Peanuts fan will want to miss this new release.”

The Peanuts by Schulz: Snoopy Tales collection will be available in stores by January 24, 2017. The new Peanuts series, on the other hand, premiered in the U.S. on Boomerang, Cartoon Network’s sister station in May 2016.

A bunch of pictures from Fox and Blue Sky’s upcoming CG animated adaptation of Peanuts is already floating around on the Internet, but for those of you who are skeptical of non-moving images and their ability to show a film’s quality, the official trailer has finally been released by Fox. And it’s in HD, too.

People who don’t want the franchise to turn into CG should be glad to know that it’s not trying to be realistic. In fact, the CG feels more like a cross between stop motion and the original 2D.

You can check out the official Peanuts movie trailer below:

The Peanuts Movie is directed by Steve Martino, and written by Bryan Schulz, Craig Schulz and Cornelius Uliano. The film is scheduled for a Nov. 6, 2015 release.

Fox and Blue Sky Studios have recently released a handful of new preview images for their upcoming CG animated Peanuts Movie. Based on the iconic comic strip and cartoon franchise from Charles M. Schulz, The Peanuts Movie marks the first time Snoopy and the gang will be portrayed in 3D Animation (okay, barring the 3D vigeogames.)

Based on the preview, the CG was used to portray a sleek cartoonish style instead of trying to depict the characters realistically. This bodes well for the production, as it means the visuals won’t get dated so easily.

If I had a dollar for every princess makeover app I’ve found on iTunes, I’d be a millionaire. But not everything in the Apple app store makes me want to rethink my consumer decisions. I’ve always been a sucker for simulation games, especially if the games revolve around my favorite characters. Because I’ve adored Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang since I was small, it only seems to fit for me to download Snoopy’s Candy Town. Beeline Interactive released the game this month.

The story? Snoopy’s dad imparts his son with a Candy Factory, but Snoopy doesn’t know gumdrops about making sweets. It’s up to his buddy Woodstock and sister Belle to give him a hand.

Beeline Interactive provides the following information on the app’s store page:

  • Enjoy the spectacle of a fizz-popping Candy Factory where a team of frantic birds operate mechanical marvels like the Candy Popper, the Jelly Jammer and the Candy Folder!
  • Help Charlie Brown and the Peanuts Gang fix up the entire town as he sets out to become Class President!
  • Expand your Factory and build your empire from the ground up!
  • Hordes of hungry, candy loving kids, all clamoring for your candy! Me first!
  • You’ll never see a cuter sight than a tricycle ridden by a team of birdies. Well how else do you think your ingredients get delivered!?
  • They’re even cuter when you upgrade them – scooters, cars, trucks, we’ve got ’em all!
  • Warning: do not attempt to eat any of the candies you see in your game. Biting into iPhones, iPods and iPads can seriously damage your device. And your teeth. And your credibility if you happen to try it while in a public space.

The game requires iOS 5.0 or later on the iPad, iPod touch, and iPhone. Please keep in mind that this is a freemium game – thus, you may have to pay if you want to upgrade something or buy a cute lawn decoration.

The ABC Television Network has recently announced that they have extended their deal over the popular Peanuts animated specials until 2020, via Peanuts Worldwide LLC and Lee Mendelson Film Productions. The specials were created by Charles M. Shulz himself and were produced and animated by Lee Mendelson and Bill Melendez.

ABC began airing said specials in December 2001. The “Peanuts” animated holiday specials include “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving,” “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” and the iconic “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” which first aired on television in 1965, and will celebrate its 50th anniversary in the coming year.

“We are thrilled that our 13 year association with ABC will now extend to 20 years,” said executive producer, Lee Mendelson. “The network has shown us tremendous support from the start, including restoring the original length to our holiday shows. Charlie Brown and Snoopy are dancing today!”

When I was a little girl, I dreamed of working on a Peanuts special. I didn’t know how to get a job with the magical studio that made these specials – I assumed you had to look in the newspaper for a secret, hidden ad or ask your mom to call somebody in Hollywood and tell them you’d be the perfect Sally. I’m well beyond the appropriate age now, but I still think about it now and then. It sure would’ve been nice.

For those Peanuts fans who lived their pipe dreams through holiday reruns and stuffed Snoopy dolls, The Art and Making of Peanuts Animation: Celebrating Fifty Years of Television Specials is a great way to learn about the people behind the movies and specials. Don’t know the name behind the first voice of Charlie Brown? You will now. Want to know how difficult it is to draw Linus or Lucy? This book may give you the answer you seek.

I get the feeling that the people who worked on Peanuts specials enjoyed their work. They didn’t think of it as another job to add to their resume; they actually had fun. You learn a heck of a lot about the technical aspects of the creative process, and you gain a new respect for the people who had to deal with (now) archaic means of communication. It’s a wonder how anybody got anything done with the risks at hand.

If you love production cels, this book has them in spades. If you collect them, you may drool at the cels you know would go for hundreds if not thousands of dollars on any given day. The Art and Making of Peanuts Animation: Celebrating Fifty Years of Television Specials doesn’t fall short on art, that’s for sure.

The book retails for $45 with 192 pages in total.

Fox Reveals More Details About Peanuts CG Movie

One of the more popular topics at last week’s CinemaCon event in Las Vegas was Fox’s upcoming Peanuts feature, which the studio confirmed to be CG animated and in stereoscopic 3D. The studio has also confirmed that the film will be released in November 2015, in conjunction with the 65th anniversary of Charles M. Schulz’ original comic strip.

The animation for the Peanuts film will be produced by Fox’s regular partner Blue Sky Studios and directorial duties will be handled by Steve Martino (Horton Hears a Who!, Ice Age: Continental Drift). The Script will be written by Charles Schulz’s son, Craig, and his grandson Bryan. The film is a milestone because Schulz has always been reluctant to grant film licenses to his characters. But there have been several 2D animated features made for the strip, most of them having been re-released in either DVD or Blu-Ray these past few years.
