Peanuts manga mode!

Recommended Posts

Wow. I love how bent out of shape everyone is getting about AN OPINION.

Dorks.

PS-I like all of those interpretations (especially the Futurama one)

It would be hypocritical for me to criticize a "remix" for ignoring the original artist's intent...

...but what the hell. That's just sooooo not Peanuts--completely messes up the characters.

Good grief.

Hey, someone else noticed the irony here! Amazing.

Anyways the reinterpretations are novel, but nothing more. Also,

OLD OLD OLD OLD OLD.

Seriously. Old.

I saw this a while back. There's nothing wrong with the drawings in and of themselves...but they aren't the Peanuts characters. Art style isn't just to give shape to a character's figure it also gives shape to the personality. These anime style figures have effectively lost the charm and personality of the characters they are based on.

I'm surprised no one complained or mentioned the time when the guys who make "Family Guy" did their reinterpretation of the peanuts gang; In particularly when Charlie Brown explodes into a house explaining himself while the skank was next to him. Or the time where Peppermint Patty and Marcie were shown as lesbians :P

That's because Family Guy is full of BS, their main marketing point. It's what makes them funny, and why noone in their right mind would dare take them seriously.

That, and it had not been brought up before you mentioned it.

While on the subject of "altering" classic characters here's a couple more though from a different artist that some how got to work within a department of Matt Groening's make

http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/46036660/ - her take on a Simpson pic

http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/46124117/ - Another take this time on Matt Groening's Futurerama characters...

In between reading what was said and written.. There seems to be some talk in reviving Futurerama... Any help with confirming this would be great!

edit: I noticed it's been out for a while.. (6 months) I'm surprised I haven't heard about it till today lol...

They're having 4 Futurama movies. The first of which I think is coming out in late November. They're turning the movies into episodes later for Comedy Central.

I never thought I'd recoil in horror at anything peanuts related. Fortunately it’s just some idiot on the internet who can’t draw that made this travesty.

The thing about those though, is the fact that the artist didn't destroy the essence of the characters by drawing them in another style.
