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. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/He%27s_a_Bully%2C_Charlie_Brown
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.
