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?
