Snoopy Vs The Red Baron ("80 men died trying to end that spree, of the bloody Red Baron of Germany") by The Royal Guardsmen was in the UK Top 10 in 1967 and then again in 1973 in a ska version by the Hot Shots. Schulz & UFS initially sued the Royal Guardsmen for using the name without permission (it was pre-existent song about the Red Baron and they added some new lyrics about Snoopy), but must have come to an agreement at some point as they made more records about Snoopy in subsequent years.

The paperbacks of the strip were in bookshops and newsagents everywhere in the UK.

There were also the Bill Melendez animated cartoons which would be shown frequently on television in the 60s, 70s and 80s...

Whilst I love Vince Guaraldi's music, I find Peanuts mystifyingly boring.

I remember the cartoons on TV were one-off specials rather than whole seasons. The only thing I really liked about the TV specials was Vince Guaraldi's music, which was great.

EDIT: snap about the music.

I liked them, though they were sometimes a bit cute and sickly.

I love the comics but couldn't stand the animated movies.

Yeah they totally lacked the strength of the strips.

I think I would like a a TV version of Peanuts that was made by the people who did Home Movies; with H. Jon Benjamin as Linus and Kristen Schaal as Lucy. Maybe Chris Parnell as Charlie Brown.

I mean the comic strips too. Just dull.

Quote from: bgmnts on October 27, 2023, 11:18:24 AMHad a few 80s Dandy annuals as a kid and thought Brassneck was the tits.

The exclamation 'wango-bango, bingo-bongo-nuts' (I paraphrase slightly in the absence of text) has always stuck in my mind after a scene where Brassneck's brain mechanism gets deranged by a blow.

Newsagent Provocateur doesn't get mentioned enough round here. What was that other one? The fella who said "yak"?

Quote from: Alternative Carpark on October 28, 2023, 05:07:17 PMThe Daily Mail used to print the cartoons daily - in the 70s and 80s at least. And there were loads of paperback books with compilations of them available then as well.

My parents weren't Tories, so I never knew that the daily ones were in the Mail. The longer Sunday strips were printed weekly at the back of the Observer colour supplement throughout the 70s and 80s.

Belatedly bought the first volume of the Fantagraphics reprints and loving it so far.

ANOTHER CaB thread that's going to cost me a fortune. 27 volumes in this fucker!


13 schoolyards

I started buying those Fantagraphics collections when the series first began - I read the first one with my then girlfriend and we really bonded over it.

Then she dumped me on my birthday after I flew from Melbourne to Sydney to spend it with her, which kind of cast a pall over picking up new volumes twice a year for the next thirteen years

Awk that's a shame even if your last sentence is really really funny
