I am on record as saying Woodstock is one of my favorite characters, so I was thrilled to have voice actor Rob Tinkler on episode 60 of IT’S A PODCAST, CHARLIE BROWN. We talk about how he gets inside the head of a little yellow bird who doesn’t talk to voice Woodstock on “The Snoopy Show” and “Snoopy in Space”. We also talk about other things he’s worked on and the craft of voice acting.

Also on this episode: a discussion of “The Snoopy Show”, season 1, episode 4; another “Peanuts by Schulz”, titled “Have a Nice Day, Linus”, and we find out Rob’s favorite “Random Strip of the Month”!

In episode 59, we’re going to the movies! Our guest this month is actor Brandon Ford Green. We’re talking about his 2017 movie “Good Grief”, which he wrote, directed and appears in. Interesting title, Brandon. And the group of adult friends gathering together for a funeral look awfully familiar. Hmmm. We’ll ask Brandon about that.

We also talk about “The Snoopy Show” episode 3, another random strip of the month and a “Peanuts by Schulz” short called “Novel Idea”. 

It’s a feast for your earholes!

Guess what! There’s new Peanuts content on our TV’s! Well, those of us who have Apple TV+, but it’s still pretty exciting!

“The Snoopy Show” debuted on February 5 and this month on episode 58 of IT’S A PODCAST, CHARLIE BROWN, we watch and discuss the first two episodes of the six-episode season one. Is the show a tasty, televisual meal of jelly beans and toast or the bitter disappointment of a pulled-away football?

We also take a few minutes to talk about one of our favorite characters as Marcie undergoes a character study.

AND…another “Peanuts by Schulz” review and “Random Strip of the Month”.

Remember travel? It’s a thing people used to do before the pandemic.

This month in episode 57, we vicariously take a trip abroad as Peppermint Patty, Marcie, Snoopy, Linus and good ol’ Charlie Brown become exchange students in France. But mystery awaits our intrepid travelers. Who is Silas Brown? Who is Violette? Why were Linus and Charlie Brown invited to stay at a creepy old chateau? How dangerous is the baron who vows to get rid of them no matter the consequences? How is Snoopy paying for all that root beer?

From 1980, it’s the fourth Peanuts feature film, BON VOYAGE, CHARLIE BROWN (And Don’t Come Back!) Oh la la!

Plus, the “Peanuts by Schulz” short “Creepy Crawlies” and another Random Strip of the Month!

GOODNIGHT 2020!

(With apologies to Margaret Wise Brown)

In the year gone by,

There was an election

And giant asteroids

And frogs whose stem cells

Powered robot androids

And there were 306 electoral votes

And 67 monoliths

And a vaccine wish

And Chris Evans hoo-ha gave Twitter fits

And the attack of the murder hornets

And lawsuits and conspiracies and Giuliani did gush

And court after court strongly ruled Trump should “hush”

Goodnight pandemic

Goodnight Tab Cola

Goodnight black lives lost all over

Goodnight LeCarre

And private space launchers

Good night Trebek

Goodnight unemployed workers

Goodnight Aunt Jemima

And goodnight Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina

Goodnight RBG

And goodnight Russian hackers now seen

Goodnight David Prowse

And goodnight quarantine in my house

Goodnight Confederate symbols

And goodnight John Prine

Goodnight nobody

Goodnight election result whine

And goodnight to those courts STILL telling Trump to “hush”.

Goodnight stars

Goodnight air

Goodnight noises everywhere

Snuggle down deep into your cozy bedclothes with a snack and beverage of your choice. In episode 56, from 2011, we’re watching HAPPINESS IS A WARM BLANKET, CHARLIE BROWN. This was the first TV special made without Schulz, Mendelson or Melendez. So is the final product truly happiness or….something else? Tune in to find out.

EPISODE 55: DOG SEES GOD + THEATRE DIRECTOR ALYSSA OLTMANNS

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/16777775/height/100/width//thumbnail/no/render-playlist/no/theme/custom/tdest_id/949208/custom-color/87A93A” height=”100″ width=”100%” scrolling=”no” allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen]

We may still be in the time of Covid, but episode 55 of the podcast is going to the theatre…virtually. We’re exploring Bert V. Royal’s 2004 play “Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead”. It’s a self-described “Peanuts parody” imagining the Peanuts gang as teens dealing with LGBTQ issues, substance abuse, violence and issues of identity and place in the world. 

To give us some perspective on why we need this play and why we need it right now, we chat with Muscatine (Iowa) Community College theatre director Alyssa Oltmanns, whose controversial production of “Dog Sees God” premieres virtually on November 20 and 21, 2020. Proceeds of the play go to support Clock Inc. of the Quad Cities.

EPISODE 54: YOU’RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN

IT’S A PODCAST, CHARLIE BROWN episode 54! A GREAT episode for a GOOD man!

The good man in question is, of course, our man Chuck Brown. We talk about the history of iconic stage musical YOU’RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN. We cover the original 1966 “concept” album to the 1967 off-Broadway production, to Broadway, to TV (including the 1985 animate feature) and beyond. 

We also have a “Random Strip of the Month” and a “Peanuts by Schulz” review. This month’s episode is “Amateurs”.

Looks like they’re dimming the houselights. Get to your seats, sit back, relax, and enjoy as the curtain rises on another episode!

EPISODE 52: SNOOPY’S GETTING MARRIED, CHARLIE BROWN + MOTION COMICS

I really need a giant mug of root beer right now. Or maybe Schroeder’s mom’s slipper full of root beer. (You’ll understand after you listen.)

So, here’s the thing. The recording of episode 52 went just fine. The post-production? Not so much. BUT, we got the episode out, though you’ll notice the audio is glitchy in some places. Sorry about that.

The good news is…SNOOPY’S GETTING MARRIED, CHARLIE BROWN! This 1985 special finds our favorite beagle all set to walk down the aisle. Will he go through with it?

We’ve also got a couple of “Motion Comics”, a “Peanuts by Schulz” titled “Autumn is Here” and another Random Strip of the Month.
