Good Grief: Stephen King’s Monsters Reimagined As The PEANUTS Gang

Selin Kilic January 3, 2017 January 3rd, 2017

Nearly approaching their 70th year since creation, the Peanuts gang has been through quite a bit, and over the years have undergone tons of identity crises through the hands of fans.

The gang has been re-imagined as the Friends cast:

The cast of Doctor Who:

There’s a “Charlie Jones” rendition of an Indiana Jones inspired Peanuts adventure:

There’s even a play on the realistic/grown up versions:

Good grief! These guys may as well have the split personality of Joe Cool vs Snoopy in the comics:

The latest, and perhaps greatest, mashup however comes in the form of the ultimate horror/supernatural fantasy crossover with Stephen King. The double homage has been done before – and King is clearly a fan:

However this tribute to both King and Charles Schulz by illustrator Hal Hefner is delightfully terrifying!

The only thing that would complete this is if there was an actual satirical comic strip called ‘Peanuts of the Corn’ where all the King/Schulz comics could live.

So sure, the comic strip may have ended at it’s 50 year mark in 2000, but with its syndication and fan base, it looks like Peanuts is here to stay. Check out more of Hefners work on his portfolio.
