Bring Me the Head of Charlie Brown (1986)

This animated short was written and directed by Jim Reardon, a future Simpsons director (his credits include such classics as The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson, Itchy and Scratchy and Marge, King-Sized Homer, and innumerable others), while he was a student at CalArts. It is extremely stupid, and extremely funny. Incidentally, the film ends with this note from Reardon:

“The creator of this picture wishes to state that he does not in any way wish to tarnish or demean the beloved characters of Charles M. "Dutch” Schultz’s comic strip, “Peanuts”. No malice or damage to their goodwill was intended. So please don’t sue me, because it will drag through the courts for years, and I haven’t got a lawyer - and besides, you’ve already got half the money in the world, and I haven’t got any. OK?“

Watch on

Happy Halloween!
