You can now get your Peanuts fix at Singapore Philatelic Museum’s (SPM) With Love from Snoopy, Charlie Brown & the Peanuts Gang Exhibition.

The exhibition celebrates all things Peanuts and philately through a showcase of rare stamp artworks, stamps, and first day covers dating from 2000 to 2015, as well as comics and collectibles. The exhibition is divided into various sections touching on different aspects of Peanuts. The main gallery is devoted to the entire Peanuts gang, introducing the characters and some of their traits. A portion is also dedicated to Charles M. Schulz (1922 – 2000), who created almost 18,000 Peanuts comic strips.

In line with SPM’s focus on philately, the exhibition highlights the relationships the Peanuts characters have with friends and family members through the letters they write. These include writing to “Dear Santa” and “Dear Gramma and Grammpa”, to ask for gifts or to thank their grandparents during the Christmas period; sending and receiving of Valentine’s Day cards; and letters to Charlie Brown’s pen pal.

Spreading the festive joy is a Christmas section featuring special Peanuts stamps and comic strips related to the festival. Visitors can trace the origins of Christmas and the Christmas tree, learn more about Christmas-related practices such as carolling, as well as discover when the first Christmas stamp and card were created. Another section highlights the times when the comic strip was brought to life through television, musicals and movies, one of which is a Peanuts TV special titled A Charlie Brown Christmas, a Christmas special first aired in the United States on 9 December 1965. Today, 50 years on, the popular holiday classic is still aired in the United States annually. Visitors to SPM will also enjoy greater insight into the making of Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie through the exhibition.

Singapore Post Limited (SingPost) will also be launching Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie commemorative MyStamp folder and lanyard. The exhibition and the limited edition MyStamp are organised in cooperation with Twentieth Century Fox, the movie distributor.
