Fun student film, 17 August 2006
Author: Alphax from Kirkland, Washington

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).
