I'm watching "A Charlie Brown Christmas," and it's clear Charlie, with his self-proclaimed inability to be happy, has untreated childhood depression. And it doesn't help that he has absentee parents who are never around and his friends shit on everything he has ever tried to do, always reminding him of what a loser he is. Plus he is a bald 7-year-old, so maybe he has cancer too? I can't watch this depressing tale any longer . . .

I NEVER understood the appeal of those cartoons, not even as a child. Yes, I can't STAND Peanuts....unless of course they're roasted with a bit of salt added....

Heff: Don't get me wrong. I like it. It just depresses the shit out of me. In a good way.

I am with Heff. Never understood the appeal of The Peanuts. I liked Snoopy but the rest of the crew have some serious issues. Not as bad as Charlie Brown but I think that neighborhood must have been near a nuclear power plant.

I think Charlie Brown's teacher should have gotten her own spin-off.

Shife: Issues for sure, but that's kind of why I like it too. Disturbed little kids.

Bschooled: I think she needed to go down the hall to the speech therapist.
