Peanuts is a comic strip written and illustrated by Charles M. Schulz, which ran from October 2, 1950, to February 13, 2000, continuing in reruns afterward for 2 – 10 years.
The strip is the most popular and influential in the history of the comic strip, with 17,897 strips published in all, making it “arguably the longest story ever told by one human being”. At its peak, Peanuts ran in over 2,600 newspapers, with a readership of 355 million in 75 countries, and was translated into 21 languages.
The main character, Charlie Brown, is the lovable loser in the zig-zag t-shirt—the kid who never gives up (even though he almost never wins). He has a wildly imaginative, supremely confident, world-famous beagle is a canine master of disguise names “Snoopy”. He’s aloof, unflappable, above the fray, the hip dog we’d all like to be.
Join everybody’s favourite characters from the World of Peanuts. Charlie Brown along with his best friends Snoopy and Lucy, decide that instead of sitting around inside on the couch and watching television, it would be great fun to play outside, get fit and practice their sporting skills.
After testing out a few different sports they decide to have a challenge to see who will win and take home the Gold Medal for the best sportsman. Join our host Holly as she sets up different challenges for the gang to participate in, and let’s the audience decide who the winner of each challenge will be by using her applause meter. “The louder you cheer, the higher the meter goes”. Children will learn that it doesn’t matter whether you win or lose, it’s all about how much fun you have.
Children can have the chance to be part of the Snoopy Gang and have the chance to make their very own bird house fit for Charlie Brown best friend Woodstock.
These little wooden bird houses, can be decorated to your own style for the family and hung to attract all types of birds. What type of bird will you attract at home?
