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?

My review of "Bring Me the Head of Charlie Brown"
10 April 2016 | by jacoblee-04430See all my reviews

Wow. Wow! What can I say about it? It's just a "Peanuts" cartoon with a twist! Out of all the parodies I've seen, this is the best one out there. The only thing that made me skeptical was that Jim Reardon was one of the people involved with "The Simpsons" before I even watched it.

After I watched it, I was like "Whoa! That was so brutal!" I've watched it a bunch of times it actually influenced me to write an animated short that spoofs "Zootopia".

Anyway, before I start ranting about the cartoon, let me just make this clear: I absolutely love this cartoon. It's so violent and so hilarious I don't even know what's going on yet until the climax. That was hysterical. This pays tribute to Sam Peckinpah who directed "The Wild Bunch" and other movies he directed.

Not only does this cartoon parodies the "Peanuts" specials, it also spoofs "Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia", "Commando", "Rambo" and more in particular. Come on, it's Charlie Brown going on a rampage on the Peanuts gang, and you know, I'm a huge Peanuts fan.

One of my favorite part in the entire thing is the climax. The first time I saw it, I was just not only blown away, but also laugh-out-loud to the max! And my favorite quote? "Happiness is a warm uzi!"

So, overall, if you're busy looking for the perfect satire of a movie to watch, this is the best example. So I'm going to give this a 10 out of 10.
