>Snoopy Sanctified


Saw this a couple minutes ago: “LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Bill Melendez, best known for bringing the Peanuts characters to life with such classics as “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” died Tuesday at St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica. He was 91.”

I must admit the Charlie Brown television stuff never did much for me. Snoopy’s voice just didn’t fit; and there were other odd things.

But, wow, I’ve always loved the comic strip. There is better theology in some of the cartoons than in many “seminaries” and “Christian” textbooks.

Given a choice between the two, I’d quickly scarf up a “Peanuts” cartoon book rather than “The Shack.”
