Peanuts is a 2014 French animated TV series produced by Normaal Animation Studios in France. The company has named FranceTV Distribution as its global distribution partner for 500 new Peanuts shorts, which were all produced in France at Normaal Animation’s studios.

The animated shorts from Normaal and France Televisions, which are based on the comic strip and characters by Charles M. Schulz, preceded the Peanuts feature film from 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios that was released in November 2015.

The Peanuts animations are based on the 18,000 daily comic strips created by Schulz and are packaged as 500 x 90-second shorts and 104 x seven-minute blocks.

These shorts began airing in France on France 3 on November 9, 2014. They started airing in the United States on Boomerang and on Cartoon Network from May 9, 2016 to March 3, 2017. After a 10-month run, the shorts are no longer being broadcast (except in Los Angeles) but they will all eventually be available on DVD. The series airs on Discovery Kids in Latin America.


All the shorts start with an opening sequence on Charles M. Schulz's drawing board. The camera zooms into a comic strip and the classic title of the Sunday strips; "Peanuts featuring Good ol' Charlie Brown", can be seen. Out of the blue, Snoopy bumps into Charlie Brown's head and they fall making the letters say "Peanuts". Finally, Schulz signs the comic strip and the shorts start.

Season 1

Season 2

There may be a second season soon because of the success of the series, however, Normaal wants to wait until the series is distributed in all territories before making another one.

Voice actors

French and English-language versions of the series were produced in France. The same voice actors, all of whom are adult women who live in France, voice the characters in both versions. This is the first time that the child Peanuts characters have been voiced by adults.

The English-language version produced in France is not shown on television in the United States. Boomerang had the entire series dubbed again using children's voices. This was done to respect the tradition in which real children have always voiced the child characters in Peanuts animated cartoons made in the United States. The child voice actors for the American version of the Peanuts TV series are children who auditioned for parts in 2015´s The Peanuts Movie, were rated highly but did not quite make the cut for the film.
