1. Episode 5: It's a Mystery, Charlie Brown & This is America, Charlie Brown: The NASA Space Station

hqdefaultYou might say HOME is the unifying theme, if you’re inclined to look for one, in this month’s Peanuts episodes. In IT’S A MYSTERY, CHARLIE BROWN, Woodstock has lost his home – someone stole his nest! – and in THIS IS AMERICA, CHARLIE BROWN: THE NASA SPACE STATION, the Peanuts gang is at home in the far-flung future of the mid-1990s aboard the brand new International Space Station, looking down upon Earth, home to us all. See how that all ties together?

Also this month, we take a look at “Brothers & Sisters” one of the Peanuts shorts produced in 2014 and currently running on Cartoon Network. We also talk about the unaired 1963 Charles Schulz documentary “A Boy Named Charlie Brown”.
