Availability: Ready to download

Put me in, Coach! The Peanuts gang is ready to play ball in this collection of baseball-themed cartoons. Some of the most popular Peanuts moments happen on the field and they're gathered here for a season full of enjoyment. As manager of the endlessly losing team, Charlie Brown soldiers on to keep his team's spirits up, while being constantly blown off the pitching mound Put me in, Coach! The Peanuts gang is ready to play ball in this collection of baseball-themed cartoons. Some of the most popular Peanuts moments happen on the field and they're gathered here for a season full of enjoyment. As manager of the endlessly losing team, Charlie Brown soldiers on to keep his team's spirits up, while being constantly blown off the pitching mound in a clothes-exploding fashion. It doesn't help that his catcher is a musician by nature or that his shortstop is a dog. Not to mention that center-fielder Lucy can't keep her mouth shut long enough to know what's going on in the game! Put them all together and you get a game plan for laughs! First published in 1950, the classic Peanuts strip now appears in more than 2,200 newspapers in 75 countries in 25 languages. Phrases such as “security blanket” and “good grief,” which originated in the Peanuts world, are now part of the global vernacular, and images of Charles Schulz’s classic characters—Charlie Brown kicking the football, Lucy leaning over Schroeder’s piano—are now universally recognized.

    Not much thought has gone into the formatting, nor indeed the wisdom of putting together an exclusively baseball-themed collection of Peanuts strips. (The humour of repetition really needs space to breathe.) On a plus side, the entire undertaking is in glorious colour.

    The baseball-related comics are probably my least favorite of the various types of Peanuts comics, but I still enjoyed this collection. :)

    This definitely isn’t my favorite of the Charlie Brown comic collections, but it was a wonderful rest and reset read. The nostalgia was so prominent that at points it made me want to cry. These stories involving Charlie Brown are just simply ones that we will cherish for the rest of time. The only reason this doesn’t receive 5 stars is simply because the baseball comics have never been my favorite of Charlie Brown, and over 200 pages of them is just a lot for someone that holds that opinion.

Would I recommend this? Of course! I may even tell my brother about it, and he doesn’t get many book recommendations from me.

    I just thought, you know, why not? The humor of Charlie Brown and the Peanuts doesn't necessarily hold up to contemporary tastes and fads, but I still very much like to look back every now and then. I, like a lot of kids, went through a lot of Peanuts, Calvin & Hobbes, Far Side, etc., in elementary school, because every school library kept (and definitely continues to keep) a liberal supply of volumes.

    Definitely disappointed; I expected better since I’ve been a Peanuts fan since I was a kid. Still enjoyable, but those who have mentioned that it could use a breather between the baseball comics was dead on! I liked the extra at the end was nice.

    A fun collection of baseball strips. I wish there some more older (classic) ones thrown into the mix.

    I thought it was humorous. Just it repeated itself too much.

    The perfect complement to the World Series. A collection of baseball-themed "Peanuts" cartoons. The perfect complement to the World Series. A collection of baseball-themed "Peanuts" cartoons.
