Charles Schulz makes more money than any other dead famous man except Michael Jackson and Elvis

The Forbes list of top-earning dead celebrities.

Peanuts creator Charles Schulz ranks third for the second year in a row with $37 million. The Peanuts are still big but Iconix, which now runs the Peanuts license, thinks they could be even bigger. A new movie, starring the whole gang, is in the works at Fox.
