"O Great Pumpkin" from Robot Chicken

November 6 2015 will see the release of The Peanuts Movie. It will be the first feature length film based on the comic strip in thirty five years and, unless I am mistaken, the first time the Peanuts gang will be computer animated. That having been said, this is not the first time the Peanuts gang was portrayed in something other than cel animation. In the sixth episode of the first season of the animated sketch comedy show Robot Chicken, the Peanuts gang appeared in stop-motion animation. Of course, the sketch in which they appeared, "O Great Pumpkin", was a very dark parody of Peanuts rather than an official Peanuts release. Indeed, it is very fitting to watch during the month of Halloween and, I have to warn you, very violent.

Without further ado, here is "O Great Pumpkin"
