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?

Fun student film
17 August 2006 | by (Kirkland, Washington) – See all my reviews

This is a great student film, with bonus points for making fun of such a cherished cartoon icon.

Lots of garish humor, over-the-top violence, and blatantly sadistic comedy. The things that make student films great.

Audio and voice-overs are rather sub-par...but I think it might have been intentional to just lampoon the voices rather than trying to copy them.

Model wise, they're pretty dead-on to the Charlie Brown art form.

Interestingly, most of the people who worked on it have had some impressive careers and worked for major studios.

If you want to see it, check the message boards for a couple of links to it (or just google search it).
