I've been looking for a good picture of every character to draw and paint for wooden yard art for Charlie Brown's "It's The Great Pumpkin" scene but can't find anything worthwhile, let me know if anyone comes across anything good with everyone in it? Thanks!

This is what I could come up with.





And I know this has nothing to do with what you are looking for, but I just love this pic.

There was a member named ChrisW who did the PEANUTS Great Pumpkin yard display a while back. He reposted his pictures here. He said that he use coloring pages as the basis for his cutouts. In his that thread there are a couple other members (lancekik and Cassie7) who did some great PEANUTS displays. You might PM these members and see if maybe they scanned their sources for their projects. Good luck!

While I did them for Christmas, not Halloween, I used a coloring book I found in the dollar spot at Target.

Thanks for reposting the thread Ezekiel. Yes, the characters were from coloring books - the clear B/W drawings projected very well.
doglover, you could look for the book version of "ITGP,CB" at your library. On the older version of the book they used stills from the cartoon. The newest version was redrawn and is not as accurate to the cartoon.
Good luck and please post the results!

I would think Google would yield some decent sized pictures.

kind of OT

This is kind of Off topic for the Peanuts, but I was inspired by the Peanuts idea...anyone ever consider "Halloween is Grinch Night" for props?

Halloweinerdog Lover,

Just sent you the jpg's. Hope they work out for you. I am not sure if the parents or the kids enjoy them more ??? They were a fun project to do, just a lot of detail painting color by color. I thinking about maybe doing scooby doo to add to the grave yard, but not sure yet.
