Five stars for the venom dripping off Linus' voice when says, "And YOU, Lucy."

Spirit stars for Pig Pen being the zen master we all suspected he was.
Right here.

Spirit stars indeed. Pigpen is a hebephrenic Saint.

We should all find such solace in being a reeking pile of filth.

And fuck you, Nvidia.

Wow, I don't remember _this_ bit of cannon. Dark.
The overarching theme of Peanuts was how cruel children can be to each other.

1:22 was played just right.

And you, Charlie Brown, with your pint of Scotch before 2 in the afternoon!
He just got arrested for stalking yesterday!

***** Good one!

Ouch, Linus, damn!
The little puff of dust when Pigpen smiles.
Pigpen isn't a kid with hygiene issues, he's an elemental force.

I was with him up until he fucked with poor Charlie Brown.
Linus is basically the Dalai Lama of Peanuts, so he must've been really pissed. Charlie knows they're buds. No foul.

This is a chidlren's cartoon, it can't be that bad...

"Do you want to see me end up like CHARLIE BROWN?"

Holy shit.
You know, this is not at all out of place in the wider Peanuts franchise. There's a tumblr, 3eanuts.com, where they remove the last panel of a Peanuts cartoon and you're left with Charlie Brown and the gang wallowing in despair. From the "about" page:

The somber subject matter of Peanuts often goes unnoticed due to the merchandising of the strip (sentimental greeting cards and the like) as well as the gag structure of the strips themselves. The concluding punchline distances readers emotionally from the misery that precedes it; jokes turn us from co-sufferers into onlooking wise guys. Schulz was well aware that the dismal content of Peanuts, which is to say the stuff of life, is difficult to face without humor to aid us. By removing the final gag panel, we bring to the fore exactly how dark Schulzís view of the world has always been. That this view often eludes us merely affirms Schulzís skill at helping us to cope.

So yeah.

I second that wow!

Also, the theory that Peanuts is actually set in a post apocalyptic universe where adults don't exist and have been just in the children's warped imaginations seems more plausible with the atomic radiation background seen here.
