Girls Gone Wild, and Other New Charlie Brown Specials

peanutsCharlie Brown fans rejoice! The animation division of ABC television has announced a whole slew of new specials about good ol’ Charlie Brown and the whole Peanuts gang to hit the airwaves over the next three years.  “This is very exciting for us.” Says Steve Mallory, Executive Vice President of ABC Animation. “It’s long overdue for Charlie Brown and the gang to enter the 21st century. True, the old specials are classics. They are forever embedded in the collective heart of the world.

The new specials will in no way diminish this. That said though, it is a new age that we live in. It’s time for this to be reflected in America’s favorite gang of rascally kids.” We couldn’t agree more.

There is no word yet on the exact air-dates, but presented here is the rundown on the next three years worth of Charlie Brown specials.

And Finally…

Charlie Brown and the gang are crossing a treacherous mountain pass when the blizzard of the century kicks up leaving them stranded with precious little supplies and absolutely no food. Somehow, some way, Charlie Brown becomes the leader of the group and he is forced to make the difficult decision that in order to stay alive, they must sacrifice Linus to have food enough to sustain them until the thaw comes and they can get off that God-forsaken mountain. So that’s what they do, they eat Linus to keep themselves alive.

A few days later however, the snow melts and they get to where they were going. Then, the special is really about Charlie Brown coping with the trauma of having cannibalized his best and some would argue, only friend. Sure, Linus would call Charlie Brown a “Block Head” but he called him that with an irony that can only be appreciated by true, life-long friends. Charlie Brown is never the same after the mountain experience. Not even frequent visits to Lucy’s psychiatric booth can help him find the inner peace he lost in that blizzard of snow and hell.

So, finally on Halloween night, out in the Pumpkin Patch where he laughed so many times at Linus as he waited in for The great Pumpkin to appear and declare his patch the most sincere, drunk and hopped up on crystal meth, Charlie Brown with a Smith and Wesson taken from Schroeder’s dad’s gun cabinet blows his own brains out. The name of this most provocative Charlie Brown Special ever is, YOU’D STILL BE ALIVE TO TODAY IF SCHROEDER’S DAD HAD BEEN A RESPONSIBLE PARENT AND LOCKED THE GUN CABINET CHARLIE BROW.

Jim Larsen began his Fool’s journey in the fall of 2004 when working as a government contractor, he literally heard the call of tarot spoken in his mind with the words “Jim, study tarot.” And Jim listened. Buying his first tarot deck that very day, he put himself on a path that completely altered his life in ways he didn’t see coming. From the government offices of the Washington D.C. metro area to the volcanic jungles of Hawaii, this path has led Jim to such places as India, China, Switzerland and more.

It is has been in his travels that Jim discovered the vast storehouse of esoteric knowledge that we, as incarnated humans, carry within us. Each of us- we all carry in us the wisdom of the ages. This wisdom is there for our benefit. All we have to do is tap into it. Jim’s personal word for this storehouse is “The Silence” for it is accessed through meditation, bliss, joy, and moments of ecstatic joy. It is not reached in those moments when the mind is engaged. It is reached when the mind is quiet and we have no need of thoughts.

It has been through Jim’s exploration of The Silence and his voracious journaling of his encounters there that he has gathered the material for his popular “Knowings from the Silence: Simple Wisdom from an Enlightened Life” series of books as well as his tarot take on The Silence- “What’s Tarot Got To Do With It?: The Fool’s Path to Enlightenment.”

Jim is also the author of “The Double Oh Fool’s Guide to Tarot Mastery” and “Art is the Best Revenge: Poetic Deviance by Jim Larsen.” What’s more, Jim is a renowned poet and humorist on the Big Island of Hawaii. He has dappled in film making, t-shirt design, and has made a name for himself in both improv and standup comedy. Jim is a Reiki Master, Deeksha Blessing giver, tarot card guru, theHonolulu Tarot Card Examiner for Examiner.com and the creator of the Fool’s Path Tarot Deck, available from his website, foolspathtarot.com
