Further information
In You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, a playing block theme and limited primary color palette worked in keeping with the juvenile identity. The oversized blocks were placed together in a jigsaw fashion to create identifiable trademarks such as Snoopy's dog house, Lucy's psychiatrist stand, Schroeder's piano, etc. Alan Kimmel stated that "the ultimate visual effects all work to achieve one goal: created on stage that zany, original colorful, familiar, very special world of Charlie Brown and his wonderful friends." (Theatre Crafts, Oct/Sept. 1967)
