You may remember a post last week on “Apocalypse Pooh,” a fantastic little pre-Internet mash-up of Apocalypse Now and Winnie The Pooh released in 1987 through underground tape-trading circles by art student Todd Graham. Though Graham is still best-known for his prototype mash-ups, I was pleased to find his fantastic little original short, “Good Grief! Cancer Boy!” a nihilistic portrayal of Charlie Brown in German (I mean, it’s more nihilistic than the original).

The disdain of his peers, the conniving sadism of Lucy, the general alienation of modern life, even in childhood—really, the material is already there. Todd Graham himself is brilliant as our tragic protagonist, and you can really feel the existential despair, you know?

It’s A Bad Brains Christmas, Charlie Brown


 
I meant to post this festive Bad Brains meets the Peanuts crew video last year around the holidays but somehow spaced on it. So here’s a big “THANK YOU” to Lawrence LaFerla for reminding me!

Good grief, Charlie Brown! Could your life get any bleaker? Once you hear Vega Choir’s cover of “Creep” set to visuals of Charlie Brown’s oh so very tragic life, you’ll see just just how bleak it can get. :’(

I had a good laugh this morning looking through Paperback Charlie Brown which pokes fun of Peanuts paperback covers. Poor Charlie Brown…


 
A few more after the jump…
