A Boy Called The Doctor

Good Grief! Ever wondered what Doctor Who would be like if it wasn’t the centrepiece of the BBC’s Saturday night line-up and instead was a 1950′s syndicated American cartoon strip drawn by Charles Schulz?

Well wonder no-more Peanuts fans as artist Larry Wentzel has mushed together the worlds of Doctor Who and Peanuts together in a series of sketches replacing Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty, Linus, Franklin and Snoopy with the Doctor, Amy and a whole Pandorica worth of Villians.

The whole Schulzifying of Doctor Who was inspired by this t-shirt design which took its inspiration from the classic strips featuring the dubious psychiatric help of Lucy Van Pelt - usually being received by the hapless Charlie Brown.

See Larry Wentzel’s photostream for more fantastic sketches!

About the Author

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

    These are just brilliant drawings – I love them. I wonder if Russell T Davies has seen them – he’s a big fan of Peanuts.

    I love the happy dancing Ood!
