An homage to the late legendary Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz, featuring 50 Sunday and daily football-themed comic strips, as well as Peanuts objects and ephemera, will be on display in the Charles M. Schulz’s Pigskin Peanuts exhibition at Forest Lawn Museum from January 18 through March 15, 2018. Pigskin Peanuts demonstrates the fun Schulz had with the sport of football and gives audiences an up-close-and-personal view of the Peanuts characters: Schulz’s long-loved bunch of cartoon kids and animals–Charlie Brown, Lucy, Marcie, Snoopy, Woodstock and the rest of the gang. Visitors will see iconic strips like “Fall Classic,” during which Lucy pulls the ball away from Charlie Brown just as he runs up to kick it, the “Mad Punters’” exuberant capers, Woodstock’s valiant gridiron efforts, Marcie’s total ineptitude at the game, and the passion and ferocity which marked Peppermint Patty’s play. Visitors will also have the opportunity to dress up in the team locker room, take a photo for a football trading card and try their own hand at “pulling the football” from Charlie Brown. Free.
When: January 18 through March 15, 2018. Tuesday through Sunday from 10am to 5pm
Where: Forest Lawn Museum 1712 S Glendale Ave, Glendale, CA 91205
