QUICK TAKES

'Peanuts' strips migrate to Web

November 04, 2008|Associated Press

In a batch of 20 new episodes, Charlie Brown and the gang have been brought back to animated life, much in the style of their classic holiday TV specials. But this time Lucy, Snoopy and the others have been remade for the Web in 3-to-4-minute videos taken directly from classic 1964 comic strips.

The videos, produced with Flash animation, were made by Warner Bros.' Motion Comics, which has previously brought strips of Batman, Superman and Watchmen to animated life. The "Peanuts" project was done with the involvement of the Charles Schulz family and estate, which monitored the adaptation.

For a limited time, fans can download two episodes of the series free on Apple's iTunes. Otherwise, two bundled episodes are available for 99 cents each or the full season for $7.99.
