The Great Pumpkin As An Adult

Remember when you watched, “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” as a child and you thought it was an alright cartoon, it was no Loony Tunes, but it was at least watchable.

Last night I had an occasion to watch “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” and as an adult, I have some strong concerns about these kids in the Peanuts cartoons.

What is with Charlie Brown? I don’t know if anyone followed his life after his little stint with the “Peanuts” gang, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he killed himself around the age of 14. Everyone picks on him, he can’t even make a good ghost costume, and when everyone else gets buckets of candy whalst out trick-or-treating, his friendly neighbors give him Rocks. Rocks? Really? Is that how we treat a child with low self-esteem, by giving him rocks instead of candy? If I was Charlie Brown, I would have come back in the night and returned all those rocks through their windows.

And what is with this Lucy? She’s a JERK, with a capital “J”, I don't care what you say. I hope that once she got into middle school someone just beat the crap out of her. I am not going to lie to you…I don’t care for her.

Where are your parents Linus? You are waiting for the Great Pumpkin until four o’clock in the morning, on a school night, and no one knows where you are? Are your parents out doing crack or something? Someone call DCFS, stat!

Needless to say, I didn’t sleep much last night because I was so worried about these kids. Can someone do a “Behind the Music” episode on these guys? I really am curious how they all turned out?

I'd be interested in what happened to PigPen. Did he get eaten to death by lice, or did he end up in jail for suffocating masses of people with his clouds of dirt?

Hello Robierto. Your cousin Ryan's wife Bethany here. I randomly saw a post and it reminded me of you. I'm going to link to the post, though I cannot fully recommend the whole blog (though QUITE funny), it's also very fluent in 4 letter words.

Ok, but here's the post. Enjoy.

Here's a caption for your Great Pumpkin picture from October, 2010:

"Linus' relationship with the Great Pumpkin was irrevocably altered when he learned his pumpkin patch was growing on an Indian burial ground."
