Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and Peppermint Patty will return to the silver screen in November 2015, timing that coincides with the 50th anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas, perhaps the most beloved cartoon in television history. But how will the new feature film — with 3-D, CG animation — compare to the hand-drawn charms of that 1965 small-screen classic? Or to the Charles Schulz comic strip that possessed an especially elusive brand of whimsy?
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
This is the worst idea ever. The comics were simple and charming, as were the cartoon adaptations. This is going to suck all the joy and fun out of life!
I’m telling you, nothing is sacred anymore.
