Peanuts…Naturally

Exhibition Rentals

Peanuts. . .Naturally

Peanuts…Naturally is currently on display at the Grimsby Museum in Grimsby, Ontario, Canada. View a short video by TVCogeco about the exhibition.

How many suns? Is the Earth flat? Charles M. Schulz touched on many aspects of the natural world during the nearly 50 years he created the Peanuts comic strip (October 1950 to February 2000). During the 1950s and 1960s, Schulz’s characters explored aspects of the natural world with wonder and delight, and their cockamamie understanding of the world around them afforded many opportunities to introduce readers of the strip to fun facts about the natural world.

By the 1970s Schulz began to address the environment and ecology more directly as citizens of the United States began to come to terms with issues regarding pollution of the air and water. President Richard M. Nixon established the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) by executive order on December 2, 1970; seven years later Schulz created a hilarious multi-day storyline in which Charlie Brown fears that he has run afoul of the EPA. Throughout the remaining years of Peanuts, Schulz explored aspects of the relationships between humans and the natural world.

Peanuts. . .Naturally, appropriate for general, natural history, science, and children’s museums, will explore the “web of life” through Peanuts comic strips, didactic materials, and interactives.

Peanuts. . .Naturally is available in two versions. The FULL VERSION includes 50 three-dimensional objects and seven interactive stations. A smaller, FLAT-ART VERSION of the exhibition will travel simultaneously from May 2011 through 2016.
