sh*t, that was pretty darned cool, but not nearly as enjoyable as It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, which I watched during my childhood.

Charles Schulz actually had some sort of clause in his will that stipulated that any future animates works based on The Peanuts would retain a similar tone and style to specials like The Great Pumpkin and so on that he supervised when he was alive.
It's nice to see that clause being honored and closely adhered to from this trailer. It looks really cute.
If it ain't broke, don't f*ck with it!

@Deaftone - thanks for that tidbit.
It will be interesting to see if kids today will enjoy and appreciate this more "simple" cartoon (in comparison Pixar animations which have ruled the box office). Although cute, I fear that Charlie Brown and Snoopy's world are relics of the past. Are we going to see the same antics like Lucy pulling the football away from Charlie at the last minute? Or Lucy yearning at Schroder as he plays classical piano. Or Snoopy chasing the Red Baron WWI flying aces? I wonder how many of these "old school" memories they will repeat for old times sake - probably all. Or will they introduce elements of today like each kid having their own iPADs, cell phones, social media, online gaming. Society and technology has changed significantly since the carefree days of Peanuts where the neighborhood kids had much more simple adventures.

I hope and think it will definitely be the latter, and I could not be happier.
