“Peanuts” Coming Back as Animated Series on Cartoon Network’s Boomerang

(via Deadline)

New animated shorts are set to start airing on May 9th at 8:30AM.

Boomerang, which has been known to play classic cartoons under the umbrella of Cartoon Network, will be getting an injection of new programming starting with this new set of animated Peanuts “vignettes”. 

The shorts have been made over the last couple of years and already aired in Europe by French animation studio Normaal Animation. They have a license to made Peanuts cartoons, but we’re curious how it will continue the spirit of Charles M. Schulz’s legacy going.
