Quantcast

It is guaranteed that there are people out there that will complain about this. I am not one of them. The first teaser trailer for FOX Family Entertainment's big-screen PEANUTS Movie (which I first posted about back in 2012) has arrived, and while it might be taking Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the gang into 3D for the first time... it sure feels right. Like PEANUTS should. While this is a true "teaser," the film will be released in 2015, just in-time for the 50th Anniversary of Charles Schulz' iconic characters. Watch it below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

For Day 30 of 31 Days of Halloween 2013 here on The Rock Father, we have... a repeat entry from 2012? Indeed we do, as IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN makes it back into my annual celebration of the Halloween Season. Airing tomorrow, Halloween night at 8|7c on ABC, as I said last year, there has never been, nor will there ever be, another Halloween special as timeless as the 1966 classic featuring The Peanuts Gang. If you don't already have it on DVD or Blu-Ray (or maybe, even if you do), there's just something really special about sitting down as a family and watching it on live television. In the meantime, here's a couple of clips...

There has never been, nor will there ever be, another Halloween special as timeless as the 1966 classic, IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN. That said, it's only fitting that I include the Peanuts gang in 31 Days of Halloween on the big day itself. If you don't already have it on DVD or Blu-Ray (or maybe, even if you do), ABC will be running THE GREAT PUMPKIN tonight at 8pm ET.

On November 25, 2015, just in-time for the 65th Anniversary of the debut of the PEANUTS comic strip and the 50th Anniversary of A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS, the iconic PEANUTS Gang will make their big-screen debut. Earlier today it was announced that Twentieth Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios have acquired rights to make a feature film based on the famous characters by the late Charles Schulz. As a Dad that has previously made special trips to Hallmark stores to acquire a plush SNOOPY for his daughter, you can bet that I'll be taking the munchkins to see this.

FREE COMIC BOOK DAY is TODAY!

It's Saturday, May 5, 2012 - which means that it's FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! Yes, it's the annual day in which independent comic shops open their doors to readers new and old to dish out some free books for kids of all ages. While I don't agree with some of the marketing materials regarding the popularity of print comic books these days, I do think that this is an important day, and the perfect chance to take the kids to a local comic book store.
