‘Peanuts’ Will Return to U.S. TV on Boomerang

Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of Charles Schulz’ “Peanuts” gang will return to U.S. TV in a series of animated vignettes set to debut on Time Warner’s Boomerang network on May 9.

New episodes will debut each day at 11:30 a.m.

The cartoons come not from the people who devised TV classics like “It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” or “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” but rather Normaal Animation of France, which is operating under license from Peanuts Worldwide LLC. The cartoons began running overseas in 2014 in advance of the debut of a new movie featuring Sally, Linus, Peppermint Patty and others which surfaced in 2015.

Time Warner’s Turner broadcasting unit will unfurl a sneak peek of “Peanuts” on Cartoon Network the week of May 9 at 10:30 a.m. Eastern/ Individual shorts will roll out on that network’s video app.

The series is billed as using a watercolor art style and textured backgrounds that is aimed at pleasing both classic and new fans.

Use of the series comes as Boomerang works to establish itself as a network for family friendly programming. Once a commercial-free outlet that ran many of the old Hanna-Barbera classics assimilated into the Turner library, the cable network now runs ads and is using vintage characters like Scooby-Doo and Bugs Bunny in new iterations to capture interest from kids and parents.
