A Chat with DC-Born Cartoonist Liza Donnelly

Liza Donnelly by Elena Rossini by Mike RhodeWe're going to wrap up this crummy, lousy, bad year with an interview with an excellent, world-class, funny cartoonist to put a hopeful spin on starting 2021. The Washington Post ran an excellent article by Liza Donnelly earlier this year in which she pointed out that she was born in DC. With this hook, she's agreed to answer our usual questions.What type of comic work or cartooning do you do?I do a variety of things, but I am perhaps most known...

Why A Charlie Brown Christmas Is So Enduring

“Charles Schulz had what Maurice Sendak had: respect for children. He understood the way they think and feel, not the way adults want them to think and feel. He understood that there’s a point in children’s growing up when Christmas doesn’t work its magic as reliably as it once did. Schulz let them explore a taboo subject, Christmastime unhappiness, while still reassuring them that Christmas is a good and fun and wonderful thing.” – The Atlantic

‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ is now an Apple TV+ exclusive

On first screening, the network assumed it had a disaster on its hands. It was a quiet cartoon — more of a meditation on seasonal depression than a proper holiday film. The pacing was slow, it was voiced by a cast of amateur children and the soundtrack amounted to little more than the jazz piano stylings of a mustachioed North Beach hipster nicknamed “Dr. Funk.” Worst of all, “A Charlie Brown Christmas” actively railed against the commercialization of the season, primarily in the form of an exte...

39 reasons Orange County should rename John Wayne Airport

The long-simmering debate over whether John Wayne’s name is appropriate for Orange County’s airport has boiled up again. In an era when racial injustice is back in the spotlight, the county’s Democratic Party — and others — now want the actor’s name off the facility for offensive remarks made a half-century ago. It became John Wayne Airport in 1979 after the Newport Beach resident’s death. Let me start by saying I think airports and the surrounding tourism industry are best served when a name te...

The Peanuts Gang Performs Pink Floyd’s Classic Rock Opera in the Mashup “Charlie Brown vs. The Wall“

YouTuber Garren Lazar has hit upon a brilliant idea—take clips from Charles M. Schulz’s universally beloved Peanuts cartoons and cut them together with universally beloved (more or less) popular anthems like “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Don’t Stop Believing,” “Freebird,” and “Stayin’ Alive.” The huge emotions of these songs suit the oversized feelings of the comic’s characters, who were, all of them, variations of Schulz himself. As Jeff Kinney writes in his introduction to Chip Kidd’s book, On...

Peanuts Rock: Watch the Peanuts Gang Play Classic Rock Songs by Queen, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Journey & More

In a very crowded field, Garren Lazar's comical take on Queen’s "Bohemian Rhapsody" is a stand-out. Comical in the literal sense. Lazar, aka Super G, struck a rich vein when he thought to mash the Rolling Stones’ "Sympathy for the Devil" with footage culled from Charles Schulz’s animated Peanuts specials. And over the last six years, he’s mined a lot of gold, using Final Cut Pro to pair familiar clips of a drumming Pigpen, Snoopy slapping a double bass, and the iconic “Linus And Lucy” sc...

Enjoying the melancholy undercurrent of Charlie Brown television specials

Presently hovering between Halloween and Christmas, after watching It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and on the way to A Charlie Brown Christmas. I was seven years old when Charlie Brown’s sad tree was first shown on TV in 1965 — the same year my parents divorced. Oddly, or perhaps not so oddly, my memory of that period has vanished. I do recall watching Abbott and Costello in Jack and the Beanstalk one evening, and then being told after it ended that they were getting divorced. No recollec...

Umberto Eco Explains Why We Make Lists

Creative Commons image by Rob Bogaerts, via the National Archives in Holland We hate lists, which have told us what to do since at least the days Leonardo da Vinci, and which now, as "listicles," constitute one of the lowest strata of internet content. But we also love lists: a great many of us click on those listicles, after all, and one might argue that the list, as a form, represents the beginning of written texts. "The list is the origin of culture," said Umberto Eco in a 2009 Der Spiegel i...

5 ways to celebrate Snoopy’s birthday at Knott’s

In 1950, the world met what was to become one of the most popular dogs ever, Snoopy. Cartoonist Charles Schulz loosely based the Peanuts character on Spike, a black and white pup that he’d had as a teen, and incorporated him into the gang’s fun, along with sending the beagle on some of his own adventures. On Aug. 10, 1968, Schulz’s comic strip depicted the Peanuts Gang giving Snoopy a surprise birthday party and, no surprise, 50 years later, many of us still have a case of puppy love and celebra...
