    Charlie Brown/Peanuts Production Background Drawing Group (Bill Melendez, 1990-2000). Good Grief, these four 12" x 10" hand-painted watercolor backgrounds from the hand of Dean Spille are lovely! From various Charlie Brown/Peanuts TV specials from the 1990s and early 2000s, these backgrounds are at once familiar and heartwarming. All four are signed on the back by Dean Spille. The first is from the Emmy nominated special Why, Charlie Brown, Why? It dealt with a new character, Janice, and cancer. This background shows a hospital room and bed. It was the 33rd special and ran on March 16,1990. It is marked Sc 112/BG 112. The second is from It's the Pied Piper, Charlie Brown. It is of the old familiar pitcher's mound. This was the last special to have Charles Schulz involvement and first special ever issued on DVD. It aired on September 12, 2000. It is marked Sc 44 BG 44. The third piece is from an early 2000's TV special and is marked 01/786 BG15 and depicts an outside scene. The final piece is from another early 2000 special and is marked 02/791 ScA32 BG A31 and is possibly from inside Charlie Brown's school. All four are in Fine condition.
