For older generations, The Peanuts cartoon is a classic comic that fills us with a sense of nostalgia as soon as we see those lovable faces.  Based on those memories, the idea of putting together a full length film probably seemed like a good one.  Tapping into the past with a built in audience while allowing adults to introduce their chi...

After the end of the second World War, the world looked like a different place than it does today. Germany was no longer a whole country, it was divided into East and West.
