“Happiness is a Warm Blanket”

For me, the Peanuts gang are as real to us as our friends in school. It’s easy to relate our childhood friends to the Peanuts characters. They are REAL. You feel like you actually know these little kids because Peanuts is about us. And real friends are forever, that’s why they stand the test of time.

daily

“Fresh Peanuts Daily”

Everyone can relate to the Peanuts comic strip. We’ve all at one time in our life eaten our lunch alone or longed for companionship that was unobtainable. We tend to root for the underdog; we hope that each day we are going to see them succeed, and we can share in that joy if they do. More than anything Peanuts is about sincerity, and always trying harder. Who doesn’t need a little encouragement every day?
