Everyone knew the Peanuts
comic strip would end when Charles Schultz died. The strip was such a personal creation, no one else could possibly have continued it.
Well, at least this project has the involvement of Schultz's progeny, so I'm hoping for the best.
BTW, not that it's germane to the topic, but my brother went to school with two of the boys who did the voice of Linus in the TV cartoons.
I guess you could call that cartoon-dropping.
