Andre 3000, Meet Schroeder. Well, it's not flash, but it's good for a Friday... Charlie Brown meets OutKast.

That's really well-done.

I'm not sure which video makes me happier: this or the original (buried somewhere on MTV's site). Thanks!

It's such a great song. I've had it in my head for approximately three weeks, and I'm not yet insane.

Great job with this video, too.

their poor server... (great link, though!)

It's so great that I'll donate to Venis' inevitable bandwidth crisis fund when they get their hosting bill through.

Oh, no. The server. She dead now.

It's down; anyone have a mirror?

Damn you, grabbingsand, and your accursed wit.

Because I love y'all, here's a (temporary) mirror. (9MB .mov)

I just want you to cum'ma? Charlie Brown!

It's back up.

This helped me see Linus and Lucy's relationship in a whole new light. Clever.

Bless you, jpoulos. Bless you!

pigpen and snoopy's resemblance to the bass and guitar player in the real video is *uncanny*

Classic! Never thought I'd see Charlie Brown's baby sister Sally "shake it like a Polaroid picture"!

Ever notice how a lot of the people in that Outkast video kind of look alike? Well, let me clue you in on something: they're related. That's right, it's a family band. They tour around the country in a bus!

Surprisingly good lip-synching. (or surprisingly bad, depending on your POV.)

It borders on blasphemy. The original Guaraldi music is nearly perfect, and to see the tiny-eyed innocence of these classic kids destroyed by being set to such crap-tastic "music" is just sad.

Aw come on bud... As much as I love Charlie Brown, this was funny stuff!
posted by buggie at 7:38 PM on January 23, 2004

it's very funny, and matches up really well...the dancers!!! : >

I get it. You put "music" in quotes because you don't like it. Clever.
posted by jpoulos at 8:14 PM on January 23, 2004

This is brilliant. Great link, DJ Spicerack.
posted by wanderingmind at 8:43 PM on January 23, 2004

jpoulos, I'm so glad that somebody here understands me; it's nice that you understand my cleverness.

But seriously -- you're absolutely right -- I put quotes around it to signify that I don't think of it as real music.

Well, OK, perhaps it is a few notches above, say, Marshall Mathers or Daryl Worley, but just barely. Still isn't quite music.

Jebus. That rules.

davidmsc: the music you like sucks

[this however, doesn't]

Yeah - I love Outkast and I'll always have a soft spot for Peanuts... but I just think mixing the two really isn't that good of an idea. Peanuts is so innocent and the Outkast song is just so adult... to mix them is... well... tacky. Still, I'm sure this video will be floating around the office on Monday morning and everyone will be talking about it - maybe it'll become the new Superfriend's "Wass-up" video.

This would have been better with something a little cheesy from the 70s or 80s.... perhaps He-Man or the Teenage Mutant Turtles or anything other than Peanuts...

Am I the only one who could not get the sound to work?

Never mind, it was my computer. That is great! : )

Brilliant. I never would have thought of mixing the two, but good editing!

Looks like their server's finally burnt out. I think we'd better prepare to contribute to their server fund. If, say, that movie was downloaded only 100,000 times, then it would have cost them $500 if they were being charged 50 cents for each gig of bandwidth.
