This is our catch-all section: amusing tidbits, links to fan sites and
cute YouTube videos, and the ever-expanding Peanuts Tattoo Page.
Snoopy recently took a flight with astronauts-in-training in the infamous "Zero-G" plane, and the often hilarious
results have been posted on YouTube. Check out what a giant weightless beagle looks like!

These commercial spots are a hoot: three consecutive ads for the same product, with slight variations.
(The second one is the best!)
...that Needles, California -- where Snoopy's brother, Spike, hangs his hat on the nearest cactus -- has
two roads dubbed Spike's Road and Schulz Road, and that they intersect each other?
As you can see on this Mapquest close-up, East Spike's Road cuts off from Highway 95,
which runs north/south and catches Interstate 40 in Needles. Head west and then southwest
on East Spike's Road, and you'll reach Schulz Road; head west on that for a bit, and you'll
come to West Spike's Road.
Needles itself, right on the California side of the
border with Arizona, is midway along Interstate 40 between Barstow, California (roughly 140 miles to the west), and
Flagstaff, Arizoa (roughly 200 miles east, although I-40 takes a northward jog along that route).
Wave a cheery hello to Spike, when you see him ... and tell him we sent you!
Do you tattoo?
We almost hesitated to get this started years back, because we had no idea where it
would lead. We received a charming note from somebody who wanted to share a Peanuts tattoo,
so we started a page to see what sort of response this generated. Who knows? And now we
have a very impressive
Caren's site is simply stunning; there's no other word for it.
She's a Web designer, and it shows; the site is beautifully put together, for
starters, and the wealth of photos that show off her collection ... just
staggering. The images are divided into many categories and sub-categories,
and each photo can be enlarged for better viewing. Although primarily
a Web "display" of her collection, the site also has a section of items
for sale, along with sections devoted to the Peanuts gang, accompanied by
informative descriptions, and interesting links elsewhere.
You'll want to bookmark this one!
Everybody always has lots of questions about PVCs -- which ones are new
this year, which ones belong to which set -- and Phil has set up a fabulous site,
with pictures, to handle all such burning issues. Check it out!
Oscar (oops...we mean Linus!) put a lot of work into these pages, which
include a nice tribute to Charles Schulz, some quizzes, character profiles, and
plenty of other goodies. And he's a very nice fellow; so tell him you dropped by!
For quite awhile now, Tim Chow has been taxing our little gray cells with
deliciously devious quizzes related to Charlie Brown and the gang. If you've missed
some or would like to re-visit others, this is the place to go! (And, while you're
at it, check out the rest of Tim's site...he's got good taste!)
True Peanuts fans do everything within their power to showcase their
love of Charlie Brown and the gang. Some folks even purchase vanity license
plates! This site displays the plates which have come to our attention.
Dr. Anthony Shuker is doing his part to keep us informed about Peanuts
events in the United Kingdom. Aside from details about product releases and a good
timeline of events that took place during Beaglefest V in July 1997, he has an
impressive search-engine that allows browsers to learn all sorts of things about
his own personal collection.
