Is there a Peanuts strip sadder than this one?
Can't bump your own threads.
In any case, I heard this was one of the last comics Schulz drew.
It was an entire comic surrounding a bunch of miserable kids. Of course it's not an edit.
Geez, I slept and them Lucy turned into a philosophical commentary about the nature of humans and how we deal with pain like fucking Charlie Brown?
H-how this thing ended for her? Its kind of depressing.
LOL looks like you've never read a single thing Charles Shulz ever wrote or said.
I dont read this comic since I was a child.
I dont remeber they ever being this existencial, I loved it.
I will download the hell out of it right now.
I can't believe there are people in this thread acting like they are surprised that this was a good comic strip? Why the fuck else would they keep running a comic strip years after the author died? This ain't no corny ass, dime a dozen dime rag funny paper press. This is PEANUTS motherfucker. Show some goddamn respect.
>mfw the guy who voiced Charlie Brown as a kid in all the most cherished cartoons including the Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas specials grew up to be a psycho nutjob who mails death threats to public officials
If you had to voice a character as miserable and depressed as Charlie Brown, you'd become a psychopath too.
Peanuts was always a tragedy masquerading as a comedy.
Do they? Most of the people around Charlie Brown are dicks to him. There are of course exceptions, like Linus. Peppermint Patty and Marcy obviously like him quite a bit as well, and he is blind to that. But beyond those, a lot of the cast feels like they're full time sadists.
Read an article in a magazine about how, when taken together, Peanuts is actually a comic of commiseration and coming to grips with a shit life filled with shitty people and other people reacting to those shitty people. each of the kids' interactions with each other represent different aspects of BS people have to deal with in general
shits dark mang
Peppermint Patty didn't make any sense at the end of the movie.
She spends the whole film horning after Chuck, openly flirting with him and swooning at him when he isn't looking.
Then, at the end, when Chuck gets the Little Red Haired Girl, Peppermint Patty congratulates him on a job well done alongside all the other kids. It's like the writers forgot she was in love with him throughout the movie or something.
She was like that in the old specials.
In one special she'd be chasing Charlie Brown's dick like there was no tomorrow (Thanksgiving).
In the next, she'd be making fun of him and joining Lucy and the other kids in tormenting him (Valentine's Day).
Peppermint Patty can't make up her mind.
Does every Peanuts thread turn into
>Patty and Marcie best girls
>he drew this one week before he died ;_;
>PEANUTS VN WHEN??
>Hush mode, nigga. Hush mode.
or am I just imagining things?
Violet's just a bitter cunt because her dad hates her and her mom so much, he refuses to go home and lives the live of a Don Draper whoremonger with a bachelor pad in the city, where he fucks whores and tells everyone around him he's single and has no daughter.
Girls like her who's father public disowns her as his daughter in public to anyone in earshot are natural cunts
I mean, what else is there, I suppose.
Peppermint Patty and Marcie are two of the best characters, though really they're all good, the situation around the comic is sad, and a lot of the comics are like that along with the fun ones, the Peanuts VN thing is mostly a joke, but it'd probably be funny, and those videos are hilarious.
A lot of threads just end up are recursive.
Dog Sees God falls apart when you consider that it ignores the Schroeder/Lucy ship so hard and so blatantly, in order to ramrod "Charlie Brown is secretly a faggot" into the plot, by having him fuck Schroeder for no good reason.
The only good thing about DSG is Eliza Duschu as Lucy and even then, she bailed on the play after a couple of performances because of "Springtime For Hitler" financial shenanigans from the play's producer.
>implying all comedy isn't tragedy masquerading as comedy
pls tell me the last time you laughed at something that wasn't the misfortune of someone else?
An unauthorized off-broadway play with the Peanuts cast as teens. Since it's unauthorized, all of the cast basically are given nicknames or new names in the case of Pigpen.
Basically the plot is that everyone's teenagers and Snoopy just died. Lucy is in an insane asylum, having (off-camera) been convicted of attempted murder of the Little Red Headed Girl.
Pigpen in the villain; no longer filthy, he's been made over as a homophobic jock who's fucking Peppermint Patty and Marcie, who are his bitches. Pigpen's favorite victim is Schroeder, who's a faggot.
Charlie Brown seeks comfort for his dog's death from his friends but no one gives a fuck. Including Linus, who's now a degenerate pot head and Sally, who is a wigger. Schroeder's the only one who will offer any sort of sympathy and since the play is written by SJWs, Charlie Brown suddenly decides he's a fag and not only announces that he and Schroeder are going out, but also lets Schroeder fuck him in the ass.
Pigpen accuses Schroeder of trying to exploit Charlie Brown's grief and turn Charlie Brown gay. Schroeder responds by referring to Pigpen as Pigpen (which he hates) and Pigpen breaks Schroeder's hands. Schroeder promptly kills himself and Pigpen gets ten days suspension for the attack.
Charlie Brown visits Lucy in juvie, where she finds out that Schroeder is a faggot and admits that she tried to kill the Red Headed Girl out of jealousy because she loves Charlie Brown. Charlie goes home and finds out Schroeder's dead and gets a letter from his pen pal, who he wrote at the start of the play regarding Snoopy's death, telling him to not abandon hope.
Thanks for the summary.
Damn, that strip reminded me of myself a bit too much.
Could be worse. Look what happened to Sally.
It's quite common for people with severe depression to act like Chuck. It can be really aggravating for everyone around them and that only makes things worse, especially if the person with depression is aware of how they're alienating people but can't seem to stop themselves from acting that way, leading to further isolation as they try not to bother anyone.
His friends do love him though. I've always liked this song from the 20th anniversary special. I wish I could find the animation that goes with it.
A good girl wants you and her to be happy together.
A best girl wants you to be happy even if it's with someone else.
>It was an entire comic surrounding a bunch of miserable kids.
Bingo. The kids are 10 but capture the angst of being teens. The dogs are dogs but capture the imagination and confusion of being, say, an 8-year-old kid.
It's basically a strip about coming to terms with depression and frustration, yet it's still endearing and likable—somehow.
It's an incredibly hard thing to pull off, and Schulz did it well at least through the 1980s.
(In the 90s it got a little too twee and charming... Rerun became too major, and was characterized as younger than even the dogs, so his problems weren't very relatable.)
Peanuts is really, really good and I hate that Snoopy has become such a commercial thing
Too fucking close
it was literally named "Why, Charlie Brown, Why?" and was pretty fucking dark.
At least it had a happy ending, with her being a survivor.

Blah blah tumblr
See I could see myself taking this seriously as a teen drama. and having characters in a play react to serious issues and troubles, because thats what a play is for.
But when you use the peanuts cast you're clearly just trying to get attention. and be edgy.
Thank you very much, anon.
>There will never be a Peppermint Patty spin-off comic/cartoon
Whoever the fat SJW cunt that wrote this is should be shot in the knees.
Does anyone know where I can find either the script or a video of the sequel, "The Gospel According to Matt: Confessions of a Teenage Dirtbag"?
