DHX Media based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia, just acquired rights for the Peanuts and Strawberry Shortcake franchises (pending regulatory approval June 30th, CBC). As a Haligonian who LOVES the Peanuts Gang, I would love it if DHX did a special introductory episode for each of those franchises, set in Halifax to introduce us to the rest of the world, as well as celebrate the acquisition and the franchises’ new production home!
Until December 6th, there is a global campaign on Facebook where people replace their profile pictures with their favourite cartoon character/s, then encourage their friends to do the same. Now this campaign I like! Too bad it’s way too short but it’s gone viral globally after just a day’s notice!
I’ve got over 250 cartoon pictures made for Facebook profile pics at the bottom, arranged in alphabetical order with names, which include some modern and some old cartoons.
