The Peanuts Are Coming Back to Stateside Television Next Month


April showers will bring May blockheads, as Variety reports that Charlie Brown and his gang hit Stateside TV sets next month in a series of animated vignettes. Titled Peanuts, the cartoons boast a fresh watercolor-art style (like this) and start unspooling May 9 on Boomerang, with new episodes coming every day at 11:30 a.m. Normaal Animation of France, under Peanuts Worldwide LLC, is behind the series, which originally aired overseas two years ago. The news comes half-a-year after the well-received Peanuts movieCGI or not, the lovable loser is here to stay.
