Mini Bio (1)

Child actor Peter Robbins was born on August 10, 1956 in Los Angeles, California. His mother was an immigrant from Hungary who died from cancer when Peter was sixteen-years-old. He first began acting in various films and television shows in 1963. Robbins has the distinction of being the first person to provide the cute and endearing voice of hapless, yet lovable blockhead "Charlie Brown" in a handful of delightful TV specials that include the holiday classics, A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965) and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966). Peter started doing the voice for "Charlie Brown" at age nine and only stopped giving voice to this beloved and iconic character at age thirteen. Moreover, Robbins not only had a recurring role as "Alexander Bumstead" on the short-lived comedy program, Blondie (1968), but also made guest appearances on episodes of such TV series as Rawhide (1959), The Munsters (1964), "The Donna Reed Show" (1958)_, F Troop (1965), Get Smart (1965) and My Three Sons (1960). In addition, he recorded a 45 single called "If I Knew Then (What I Know Now)" in 1968. Peter quit acting in 1972 and worked, for a while, as a disc jockey in Palm Springs, California. He graduated from the University of California in San Diego in 1979 with degrees in psychology and communications. He now works in real estate in Van Nuys, California and lives in a condo in Oceanside, California with his dog, Snoopy. Robbins was a guest at the San Diego Comic-Con in 2008.
