    I never understood the Peanuts specials. It seemed the characters were either pontificating about something boring, shouting, or talking to someone I couldn’t understand – and then there’s that incessant piano music.

    Denny,

    Check out Jimmy Wallace’s new album “Working For Peanuts.” It’s great! (He played organ and piano on The Critics album, and will be doing a show with us in Shreveport on 12/20…if u r headed home around that time…)

    “incessant piano music?”

    Nathan, you and people like you are why America will be a culturally impotent country within my lifetime.

    Donn — this is why I have bought all of the Peanuts collections on DVD. Then school nights and world series conflicts are no longer an issue.

    @Paul: Not everyone gets jazz piano. That doesn’t automatically make one culturally inept as if up-tempo jazz piano is the standard. I realize that I’m probably in the minority, but IMO the Peanuts specials’ music, style, subject matter, etc. do not gel together into something wonderful. A good example of when things do work out is the Snowman which is great at all levels.
