A new “Peanuts” TV series is about to launch that will feature the familiar characters from “Peanuts” comics and TV specials. The cable channel Boomerang announced plans for the show’s premiere, set for Monday, May 9, at 11:30 a.m. ET/8:30 a.m. PT.
The channel also released a promotional clip this week, and you can watch it below.
“For the first time, the individual Peanuts print comic strips come to life in vignettes filled with humor and heart for the whole family,” Boomerang said in its announcement, adding: “The series captures the spirit of the timeless adventures of Charlie Brown’s gang and his wildly imaginative, supremely confident and world-famous beagle, Snoopy. The watercolor art style, textured backgrounds and framing deliver a viewing experience that will excite both classic Peanuts enthusiasts and new fans alike.”
A sneak peak of the show is planned for Cartoon Network the week of May 9 at 10:30 a.m. (ET/PT). Additionally, selected individual shorts will roll out on the Cartoon Network video app.
The show comes from Normaal Animation under license from Peanuts Worldwide LLC.
The announcement notes: “Boomerang’s exclusive U.S. premiere of Peanuts further establishes the network as a prime destination for original, family-friendly animated programming with a slate that includes ‘Bunnicula,’ ‘Wabbit,’ ‘Be Cool,’ ‘Scooby-Doo!,’ ‘The Tom and Jerry Show’ and the hour-long special ‘Super Hero High.'”
