$25M is a lot, but Peanuts is one of the finest comic strips created.
"After last year's Iconix purchase of an 80% stake, Schulz' prized cartoon characters maintained a bulk of their reported 1,200 licensing agreements with the likes of Met-Life, Warner Home Video, ABC and Hallmark. The focus of the last year has been bringing Peanuts to the digital space, with a Capcom video game, low-priced e-books, a Facebook application and comics and graphic novels on iTunes. "

You are indeed. It's $12 million.
