The Today show hosts dressed in terrible, scary Peanuts costumes

No, I’m in complete agreement. These guys gave them the paper bag mask equivalent of Halloween this year.

My educated guess is the cross-promotional thing was waaaay too late in approval to get something more design appropriate made in time, like giant foam heads with face holes. And the ones that seemed sort of like they were trying something along that vein, Snoopy and Woodstock, were horrible.

You would think at that some point someone would have said “You know this isn’t just working”

Whoever that had the power to say that really must hate these guys.

I don’t remember Linus looking quite so much like Gollum.

Good association. Gollum had his ring, Linus had his blanket.

Why didn’t they just buy something like this?

If they just wore the right clothes, had some good props (blue blanket, toe piano), it could have been a nice tribute/promo. Hell of a lot cheaper and far less disturbing.

Could have been worse though. Picture Al Roker in this little number:

I was gonna mention the same thing. They were trying to be preemptively hip by cross-promoting something that may spurn Peanut-themed Halloween costuming next year. I think it’s a fail since all I got was the creeps when I saw these pictures. But it’s Halloween, so maybe they were going for the creep factor?

My childhood <=== Destroyed.

Excellent work. They’re not mysterious though, just vilely clustered in a sickening display. The jerks.

Right? Take a shower already.
