The Peanuts gang is putting a stamp on its legacy once again.

Charlie Brown and Snoopy are honoring their late creator in a new stamp series. The Postal Service revealed new stamps coming this year that show ten characters from the beloved “Peanuts” cartoon. There are two of each on the sheet with a 1987 photo of Charles Schulz in the middle.

The stamps will celebrate what would have been the cartoonist’s 100th birthday this year.

Other new designs coming this year include the Webb Space Telescope, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, snow scenes, and Holiday Elves.

This remind me of the time I was at Carowinds hosting a costume contest that was Peanuts themed. The unfortunate part is that I did not know what the characters were. Imagine me on stage, having kids show off their costumes and I have no clue on what to say because I can’t figure out who they are dressed as. Total nightmare!

Also, Mothers Day is coming up, are you prepared?
