EXTRA: The least-accurate depiction of Charlie Brown ever drawn

His shirt is much less stylish (and much more cloying), but at least the kid finally grew some hair!

Don't believe me that this is actually a drawing of ol' Chuck? See for yourself. Found on musical oddities site Way Out Junk, it's from the cover of a rendition of the music from You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown.

Evidently they got the rights to the music but not the strip, so I'm guessing they had to purposely draw characters that looked nothing like the kids we all know.


  1. Hey, thanks for the mention on your blog, John! Trust me, that Charlie Brown stand-in was one of the lesser strange things about this strange album!

    I've been following you for quite a while and I love the job you're doing. (Plus getting to see all those old Peanuts strips is pretty cool too!)

  2. Wow, now that is a coincidence considering that I found Way Out Junk yesterday entirely by accident! Thanks for the work on your blog by the way, I went through it yesterday and there's really a lot of amazing stuff there.
