This Charming Charlie is a Tumblr blog dedicated to the iconic Peanuts comic strip. The blog revamps the classic cartoon that ran from 1950 to 2000. Originally illustrated by Charles Shulz, the blog is run by Lauren LoPrete who injects lyrics from The Smiths into the gang's speech bubbles. The Smiths were an English rock band whose lyrics were written by Morrissey. Words and lyrics come from famous song selections including 'This Charming Man' and 'How Soon is Now?'
LoPrete is a Bay Area graphic designer as well as the co-owner and creative director for record label Loglady Records in Oakland. The adapted comic strip features long-loved characters including Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty, Woodstock and Snoopy. Fans of The Smiths will particularly enjoy This Charming Charlie.
