Why's Everybody Always Pickin' On Me?, 2 September 2005
Author: bbethel66 from Buffalo, NY

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.
