Schulz[...'s] greatest disappointment [was] the name "Peanuts," forced on the fledgling cartoonist by the syndicate editor when they first agreed to buy his strip."It's totally ridiculous, has no meaning, is simply confusing — and has no dignity. I think my humor has dignity."

Thankfully, the Peanuts moniker isn't really as defining a name for his work and characters as the name Charlie Brown is. I never say, "I can't wait for the Peanuts special!" I say "I can't wait for the Charlie Brown special!"

He may have thought Peanuts was ridiculous, but how would the original title, Li'l Folks, look today?

Well... I would say that if a new strip/property/shows were being made in this century, it would be pretty bland and lame sounding. I think if it had 40 or 50 years to fester in our popular culture, we wouldn't think twice about the name. Kinda like how Little Rascals just fits.

That last trailer made me want to go see the movie. I really do think this is going to capture the spirit of the television specials and the comic strips.

I do too. I think old and new Chuck fans will enjoy this.

A string of Charlie Brown specials would be a good way to celebrate the release of the new film. Nickelodeon, the former home for Peanuts, should do a marathon.

I was hesitant at first, but after seeing the trailers I'm looking forward to this. I agree though someone at Nick should get onboard with some new specials.
