There are so many ways Blue Sky Studios could have screwed up “The Peanuts Movie.”
At some point some studio suit must have wanted to insert a flatulence joke or Snoopy writing a blog or a cross-promotion with Chuck E. Cheese Pizza Time Theater.
But the beloved characters created by Charles Schulz remain pure; at least until the sequel. Snoopy and Charlie Brown are locked in that time when a snow day meant playing with friends outside and amateur psychiatry still cost just five cents.
