Snoopy's Brothers

So I just watched this weird movie called I Want A Dog For Christmas Charlie Brown. I say it's weird because Lucy and Linus's little brother Rerun gets in trouble with his principal for harassment because he asked a girl in his kindergarten class if she wanted to fly to Paris with him because she was having a bad day. It was actually holding my attention quite well when my mom called. I was half listening to my mom and half listening to the show when Charlie Brown mentioned that Snoopy had a couple of brothers . . . Andy and Olaf!!!! I thought maybe I heard wrong, after all I was only half listening, but I looked it up and sure enough Andy and Olaf are Snoopy's brothers among a few others. How weird is that? We all know an Andy/Olaf too! If any of you get this in time, I Want A Dog For Christmas Charlie Brown is on ABC at 8:00 Pacific Time tonight (Monday 12/15). It's mentioned within the first 20 minutes or so, so you don't have to be bored with the whole craziness for too long if you don't want to!

I almost have no words after reading that post. The fact that Andy/Olaf is two of Snoopy's brothers is quite impressive.

I am equally amazed at this development. I have watched and read Peanuts all my life and did not know this.

This is why we need Stefany in the family. As smart as we are we still need another smart person to teach us things.
1. Health
2. Dance
3. How to be a Chicano
4. Peanuts relationship to Andy


I did know about the Olaf but I did NOT know about the other brother Andy and I have been reading Peanuts for YEARS..Stefany, you are amazing and thank you for listening only half way to your mom so you could learn this valuable piece of information.

I agree it is another Christmas miracle.
