WORST. PEANUTS. EVER.

Did you know Charlie Brown’s parents were organ donors? When Charles M. Schulz agreed to using Peanuts characters for MetLife’s brochures, there were unexpected consequences.It’s one of many strange moments in Peanuts history noted for posterity in a new post, 5 Lamest Charlie Brown Cartoons, on the 10 Zen Monkeys blog. There’s five YouTube clips documenting several oddball Peanuts moments from 40 years of Charlie Brown animation. (Snoopy as Flashbeagle; Charlie Brown shilling for Cheerios; et al). Needless to say, these clips (and the commentary by blogger “Destiny”) are a lot funnier than last night’s new Peanuts special, He’s A Bully, Charlie Brown.
