Peanuts as Peanuts t-shirt proposal on Threadless

Murraymullet's Threadless submission features literal Peanuts -- unshelled peanuts painted to resemble Charles M Shulz's creations. Nice!

  1. Do you realise how weird it is for a non-native English speaker that the word “unshelled” means “with the shell still on”?

  2. Very cool concept, it’s a shame that they (probably) won’t be able to print it due to licensing issues.

  3. Can they really print that number of colours anyway?

    Perhaps it doesn’t need a license. On one hand it’s clearly a derrivative work but on the other it doesn’t include any of the characters or names.

    1. Yep. They’ve been getting pretty fancy. That could be an interesting case if they tried it on legally, I just don’t think Threadless would be willing to give it a go.

  4. This is pure genius. I love recursive stuff! One only hopes it’s allowed to be put on the store. It’d be a real shame if it was not.

  5. What’s a shame is that Schulz HATED the name ‘Peanuts’ – he had them called “Lil’ Folks”

    And the pairings don’t seem right. For instance, Sally is “in love with” Linus and Lucy would be more appropriate leaning against Schroeder’s piano.
