Storyline

The Great Pumpkin puts a bounty on Charlie Brown's head, and as a consequence, the rest of the Peanuts Gang proceed to kill Charlie Brown in various ways (from Lucy having Charlie Brown kick an explosive football, to Linus strangling him with his blanket, to Snoopy chomping off his arm which held a Peppermint Patty candy), until finally, a Rambo/Schwarzenegger-like Charlie Brown goes postal and mass chaos ensues!

Crazy Credits

A disclaimer in the ending credits reads: The creator of this picture wishes to state that he does not in any way wish to tarnish or demean the beloved characters of Charles M. "Dutch" Schulz's comic-strip, "Peanuts". No malice or damage to their goodwill was intended. So please don't sue me, because it will drag through the courts for years, and I haven't got a lawyer - and besides, you've already got half the money in the world, and I haven't got any. OK?

Why's Everybody Always Pickin' On Me?
2 September 2005 | by (Buffalo, NY) – See all my reviews

Good news: Charlie Brown finally fights back! Well, the Great Pumpkin calls for the head of Charlie Brown, and the Peanuts gang are out to kill him in numerous ways. Except this time, the blockhead is ready to settle the score.

This is really just a parody made by some guys at CalArts about 20 years ago. It's a very funny cartoon, the animation and designs are very well done, and it shows how talented the then neophyte animators were. Of course, I wonder how Charles Schulz felt about this cartoon, or if he even saw it. It truly does deserve some kind of public release.
