    Turning over in his grave….to get a better look, I say! These costumres are quite creative and realistic.

  • Jusstlookn2

    Sometimes there nothing to say.

  • Milani

    ummm…

  • Use_Coasters_aka_Sol_88

    Absolutely disturbing & why is there no Franklin?!

    & YES I’m Petty Pendergrass!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    For a second I was like wtf is he suppose to be lol

  • Datsmdubya2u2

    Why is Charles Shultz turning over in his grave Sandra? cause a black man dressed up like Charlie Brown? The movie studio paid Wendell Williams and crew to dress up too..

  • Datsmdubya2u2

    Al looks like some kinda elf or alien or something

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I couldn’t believe what I was watching this morning. I was speechless ?

  • Fendi

    Al Roker looks scary. He looks like Charlie Brown got burned in a fire. Why couldn’t he be the Black character on Peanuts so he didn’t look so odd?

    Meredith looks the same, just with a bald cap.

  • The Mrs.

    How cute!

  • The Mrs.

    I know right! Very cool!

  • Jen_n_juice

    Franklin had much needed common sense, it would have be amazing if someone brought light to that character LOL

    Right!

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    This look like The walking dead version of Charlie Brown. Smh.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    And everyone of her identities will be banned.

  • SummerBaby

    That’s what I thought as well ?

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    Franklin left out again. Saw a Thanksgiving comic where all the Peanuts were seated at the table but only Franklin was on one side—sitting in an old rickety folding chair.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    :ghost:

  • Nik

    I need to make Franklin my new screensaver. He needs to get a little shine this weekend.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    There’s a movie? I guess I would know that if I had kids.

  • Nik

    Yes…he needs more lines.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    They show the previews at the movie. I think it comes out around Christmas

  • SummerBaby

    Yes a movie is set to come out. Im not sure when. Thanksgiving I think.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Ha!

  • SummerBaby

    Thanks I wasn’t sure if it was Thanksgiving or Christmas

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Even the dog didn’t want to sit with Franklin.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I love Tamron. I’ll give her a pass.

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    They probably didn’t want to make it seem that he had to play a black character.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    Yes ma’am it does.. if you’re on the ‘puter there’s a flag to the right of a persons name

  • DivineMsM

    Thank you for that, Ms Sandra. It got too much.

  • Nik

    I hope the movie does the cartoon justice and it’s not one of those things where it should just be left alone. I’m too big of a fan to bear it.

  • MzApple

  • Nik

    LOL! In the episode before that Morgan p*ssed me all the way off trying to be Gabriel Jr. sparing lives. He has yet to adapt to how things are done in that world, but the last episode I think he got a clue. Carol is my G for real. She really came a long way. I can’t wait to see the next episode. I know Glenn is going to find a way out. He’s one character that can’t die on me.

    Well Charlie Brown is the ring leader of the group so I choose to look at it in a positive manner as Al Roke is the veteran of that morning show for being there over 15 years.
