Hilarious Parodies of Charlie Brown and Friends

Poor Charlie Brown! He is such a lovable character with a big heart, but he can just never do anything right! For nearly 50 years, cartoonist Charles Schwartz created this little guy, along with many other members of the gang including Snoopy, Linus, Lucy, Sally, Pigpen, and Peppermint Patty. Today, artist Tony Medeiros uses this insecure main character and friends as the foundation for a little bit of outrageous humor on his blog called Paperback Charlie Brown.

The site features parodies of the classic Charlie Brown paperback books, in which the character continues to get picked on in a modern day context. We featured our 12 favorite parodies here, and recently checked back to find a plethora of new and funny creations. Medeiros uses the original drawings in combination with humorous taglines that redefine the meaning behind the illustrations, often referencing recent trends and pop culture. Ranging from “You’re Evicted from Wall Street Snoopy!” to “I Was Kicked out of Facebook!”, Medeiros has a great sense of humor that comes through in his recreations of the classics. I can just imagine Charlie Brown, after seeing many of these spoofs, exclaiming his catch phrase in reaction: “Good Grief!”
