A Very Special Catblogging

Because we know our readers come for the cats and stay for the cats, here is a Very Special Wednesday edition of catblogging.


Greg with vanishing tail. Yes, in natural light*, Greg's tail vanishes like Pigpen's head in "A Charlie Brown Christmas."

*This post contains your recommended daily allowance of pretension.

What an interesting comparison! I wonder if your friends over there will understand the comparison to Pigpen's head. For that matter, I wonder how many people in the US have watched closely enough to get it.

It wasn't until we got a video of "A Charlie Brown Christmas" that I realized Pigpen's head disappeared. Now every time I look at the show, I have to go frame by frame until the head disappears.

You know, I did a Google search trying to find either a reference for the vanishing Pigpen head or an image that would capture it, and nothing came up. Now, Google "pigpen vanishing head charlie brown christmas" and I think I'm the number one hit.

I used to not be able to watch that part of Charlie Brown's Christmas because of the disappearing head. It was like a horror movie to me!

Yay - you made no. one on Google! But be sure to use the word "vanishing" rather than "disappearing" if you're going to Google it - a mistake I made.

Smitty, I found a reference at IMDb, A Charlie Brown Christmas, that says the boy who vanishes during the last scene is Shermy.

Oh really? I stand corrected. Perhaps it was Pigpen in the background then?

Thanks for putting up a great cat photo. Whatever you guys do or whoever you are, I'm not exactly sure, but keep the cats!

More ACBC goofs at: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0059026/goofs

Always somewhat crude, the Charlie Brown titles live in in stunning contradiction to current animation. But catch them while you can; they are getting quite long in the tooth and with Schulz gone, a slowly building consensus is growing that Peanuts should step aside for newer content.

I'm going to have to watch the show now and see who vanishes, Pigpen or Shermy. Congrats on being number one at something!

Ah, so IMDB says it was Pigpen's head and all of Shermy.

So, you were right in the first place and it was Pigpen's head that disappears. I missed that information when I visited the website. I should have dug deeper than I did.
