Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
Formerly confined to the comics section of the newspaper and occasional TV specials, the Peanuts gang now stars in its own weekly cartoon. The episodes mainly follow the goings-on in the printed comics, with Charlie Brown still not getting any respect, Lucy still being a crab, and Snoopy still living in his strange fantasy world.

For years, CBS tried to persuade "Peanuts" creator Charles M. Schulz to do a "Peanuts" animated TV series, but Schulz steadfastly refused, because he did not want anyone else other than himself to write the stories for such series. Eventually, Schulz was convinced by CBS, but only on the condition that the series be based strictly on stories from his strip. (Schulz himself would also write all-new stories especially for the series). This series was that result. See more »
If anybody has read any previous comments by me then they have been on cartoons, which tells you I am an expert Cartoonist and cartoonist critic at age 12. To second with, I don't bother writing a comment unless it's a good one, so all comments are good. Anyways this is a great show for adults and kids alike, it involves many of the truths in life in the humor of Charles Schulz' acclaimed cartoon. It involves many of the comic strip themes into the show (e.g. "Baseball", "The Cat Next Store", "Show and Tell".) What cracks me up though is that these children act so adult part of the time and completely ignorant the next. I just love sweet old Charlie Brown always being so good yet such a complete failure that he makes us laugh. I love Linus' intelligence and "Security Blanket", as much as I love his sisters crabbiness. I would also like to comment on Schroeder's music craze, and Snoopy's humanlike attributes. Although these are my favorite characters what cracks me up in the show is Sally's comments, like when she's playing football with Linus "Why should I kick the ball, it hasn't done anything to me." "Just kick it" "What if it kicks me back...I've decided not to kick the ball" (Air leaks out of the ball). "The ball is hissing at me" "Maybe it's sprung a leak" "No this ball is definitely hissing at me..." (the ball goes flat) "I think it passed out". To me this is funny, these are events that happen to most regular people through kids. If you like Peanuts or feel you need to laugh at life then see this movie, you'll enjoy it.
