The Art and Making of Peanuts Animation

Client: Chronicle Books

Ever since the first Peanuts animated special, “A Charlie Brown Christmas” arrived in 1965, Charlie Brown and his friends became an indelible part of the our holidays. Working directly with the Peanuts archive, noted animation historian Charles Solomon presents the fascinating background story of how those beloved specials were made. Through original sketches, storyboards, character art, and interviews with the creators, we have a privileged window into the fifty-plus network specials and four feature films in which the comic strip came to life on screen.
