Watchpeanuts: Watchmen as Charles M Schulz drawings

Watchpeanuts is a fantastic concept drawing from Evan of DeviantArt, a graphic answer to the age-old question, "What if Charles Schulz created the Watchmen?" Link (Thanks, James!)


  1. Gonna need a new keyboard…

    I now have an image running through my head of the animated version (dah di-dah di-di-dah, dah-dah)

    However, we need Lucy as the psychologist. I see Peppermint Patty is the Silk Spectre.

    Poor Linus.

  2. I think I would have made Linus the Nite Owl. Both characters seem so sad to me, so meek and second-rate. Pig Pen would have made a nice Comedian too – they’re both down and dirty.

  3. You know, in my nitpicky criticism, I failed to mention how totally awesome this is. Thanks for posting it, and kudos to the mind behind it.

  4. Just seconding the thought by Samurai Gratz about the mappings; it was my first reaction. But still, seriously cool.

    A quick Google Image search turns up a Peanuts Justice League pic here.

  5. Charles Schulz had a completely different worldview – now that would be a fascinating difference to explore.

  6. Oh. My. God. That is so freaking awesome.

    “Time is a intricate jewel, in which every moment is visible simultaneously in the whole, though people insist on viewing it one facet at a time. I’m there now, 10 years ago, not kicking the football. 100 minutes into my future I see myself here, now, watching myself not kick the football…”

  7. In a similar vein, The Simpsons had Moore at a signing in Springfield.

    Milhouse asked him to sign his copy of Watchmen Babies: V for Vacation.

    Link to image on Skitch.

    And may FSM have mercy on their servers!

  8. Hmm, Linus is Lucy’s brother. Comedian is Silk Spectre’s father. Watchpeanuts’ family reunions must be a little weird.

  9. Fantastic! I love Snoopy’s pose, it’s great!

    Is it me, or did the artist sort of went for the 60’s look of the characters? Lucy, in particular.

  10. he got Silk Spectre (hard-bitten) and Rorshack (hallucinating lone dog) and Ozymandias (blonde over-achieving pretty boy) right enough

    Charlie Brown should be the self-doubting Night Owl
    Linus should be the all-knowing all-seeing Doc Manhattan
    Peppermint Patty should be the pushy arrogant Comedian

  11. I thought Pigpen as Rorschach seemed the obvious choice, given their common lack of hygiene.

  12. I’m sure I’ve seen this done before, with Pigpen as Rorschach, Linus as Dr. Manhattan, Charlie Brown as Nite Owl and Snoopy as The Comedian…
