An Emmy Win for Peanuts
Over the weekend, the first portion of the primetime Emmy’s were awarded, and we’re pleased to announce that the Peanuts special, “It’s Your 50th Christmas, Charlie Brown” won for Outstanding Children’s Program. The show, hosted by Kristin Bell and with cameos that included a congratulatory message from Barack and Michelle Obama, paid tribute to the 50th Anniversary of the ever popular “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” Executive Producer, Jason Mendelson, the son of longtime Executive Producer of all the many Peanuts television specials, Lee Mendelson, was on hand to receive the award.

“Like millions of Americans, I grew up with ‘Peanuts.’ But I never outgrew it.”
The 25th volume of “The Complete Peanuts” featuring an intro by President Obama is set for release this May and is the last in a series of hardcover books reprinting every daily and Sunday strip of the iconic series that appeared from 1950 to 2000. The volume covers Jan. 1, 1999 through February 13, 2000 when the final Peanuts comic strip was published the day after the death of its creator Charles M. Schulz.
