Good Grief

“Your honor… It wasn’t me
who sent those threatening letters.
It was the Great Pumpkin.
Swear to God.”

Peter Robbins
Actor, child star, blockhead.
August 10, 1956 – January 18, 2022.
Aged 65 years.

Most recognized for: Peter was the voice for Charlie Brown in all of the major Peanuts TV specials and appeared in a few 60’s-70’s sitcoms. But like too many child actors of his time, he was destined for darkness… as he was jailed & institutionalized for drinking, drugs, domestic violence, stalking, and threatening to kill his trailer park’s manager. After a lifetime spent in the shadow of a neurotic comic strip character, good ol’ Pete reached the end of his rope.
