I largely agree with this, except that I found the trailers for Snoopy Flying Ace to be effective -- Linus was a barkeep, talking about the exploits of the Legendary Flying Ace, and it was all done as 3-D CGI. Obviously, I'd prefer cel animation, but that's not what the studio they're partnered with does. The original Peanuts comics from BOOM! Studios have been surprisingly good. Happiness is a Warm Blanket worked a lot better than I thought it would. The impression I have is that the Schulz family is treating the comic strip as a completed canon while recognizing that they need to do other things in other media to keep Peanuts as an ongoing and thriving concern.
