Then and Now #2: Peanuts

THEN (1951): Adorable kids who behave like kids. Punchy scripts. Beagle character is a quadruped, as nature intended.

NOW (1965): Ugly kids who behave like patients diagnosed with psychotic depression. Beagle has undergone Dr. Moreau-like transformation into annoying, preternaturally intelligent biped.

SCORE Then: 9.5, Now: 4
