Today is not only the 60th anniversary of the debut of Charles Schulz’s immortal Peanuts comic strip, but part of an ongoing COUNTDOWN TO THE GREAT PUMPKIN social media game whereby fans can contribute their own memories, videos and so on on a variety of platforms. Participants win points towards winning a custom Peanuts iPad, and then a further $25,000 prize. Full details in the link.


  1. I say this sincerely, and if it comes across and sloppy and sentimental, it’s meant to:

    Happy Birthday, Peanuts. And thank you Charles Schulz for giving so much joy to so many children and adults. Myself included.

    Bring on the Great Pumpkin,
