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 movie — CGI or not, the lovable loser is here to stay.
It's time for a new adventure, Charlie Brown!— Cartoon Network (@cartoonnetwork) April 28, 2016
Coming (very) soon..
