He's a (feel good bullshit for the new century) Bully, Charlie Brown

Charlie Brown WINS? WTF??????

What???? What are you talking about??? Charles Shultz is dead and Charlie Brown never won. How could there be a new one???? What am I missing?

It's a new special that was on TV tonight.
I got a kick out of how they created a jealousy subplot between Marcie & Peppermint Patty over Charlie Brown- the creators seem to want to take on the public's general impression that the two ladies are lesbians.

I can't believe I missed a new Charlie Brown, my sadness engulfs me. Woe. Oh, woe.
Actually, Marcie & Peppermint Patty have fought over Charlie Brown before. Sometimes putting him in the 'chose or lose' position. And then there was the whole french kid thing, and you know what? I never have liked Peppermint Patty. She never listens.

I couldn't bring myself to watch it!

read this from wiki (CB in the strip):

He did have occasional victories, though, such as hitting a game-winning home run off a pitch by Roy Hobbs' great-granddaughter on March 30, 1993 and soundly defeating "Joe Agate" in a game of marbles on April 11, 1995. In the final weeks of his strip, determined to finally have a winning baseball season at least, Charlie Brown tried to channel Joe Torre, which made his sister think he was cracking up.

love, me

So I guess the wussification of Charlie Brown began in the 90's. Typical.

I remember the Joe Torre strips. Sorry to all the Peanuts fans out there, but that's the first time the strip made me laugh out loud since I was eight.
