great animation

this is one of my fav flashes ive seen, i was wondering what was up with that eye n shit till i watched the extra that tied it all in. I would suggest that u say watch the extra first so that people dont get lost at first. Very good flash though this gets my 5 n 10. Keep the flashes comin!

You guys have blown me away again.

As you know, I am a HUGE fan of your cartoon, Charlie Brown Murders, and I had to see this despite it not being connected to CBM in no way save for the Peanuts characters and Charlie Brown's implied psychosis. Like CBM, this blew me away, but unlike the dark humor and vengeful satisfaction given off in CBM, you guys have done almost a completely perfect 180 and added more emotion, sadness, and mystery.

Like CBM, this cartoon was animated very well. In my opinion, the animation seems to be even better than it predecessor. With the exception of the person that voiced Charlie Brown (the guy that voiced him in CBM was much better, in my humble opinion), I enjoyed all of the actors' voices, especially the talented Kimlinh Tran (Note to Kimlinh: Why you haven't gotten a job in the cartoon industry as a voice actress yet is beyond me.). The selection of music that you've used for the soundtrack was perfect. Every track went perfectly with every scene, and none of it felt out of place.

I enjoyed this cartoon a lot. I sincerely hope you don't abandon the sequel for CBM, and I would really love to see the mental state of Charlie Brown expanded on. Has he really gone nuts, or is some supernatural force using him for its own agenda? Will Lucy EVER stop being a bitch? No. Is she dead, or is she hanging on to her life by a thread? Hopefully, you guys will explain it in the episodes to come.

Thanks man for continued support, great to know a CBM fan was able to roll with the change in tone. We can't wait to answer all your questions, sooner rather than later.


this is very good. You remained very true to the origanal specials and comic, adding your own psycotic twist.

Better than the original

The animation and artwork were top notch. This may be one of the best submissions that newgrounds has ever recieved. Absolutely loved the dark take on an old classic.
