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?
