We review 1967's You're In Love, Charlie Brown, in which Charlie Brown repeatedly divests himself of all responsibility for his foolish, self-defeating choices. This largely embarrassing specimen of a Charlie Brown special is redeemed by the introduction of Grown-Up Trombone Voice, the Little Red Haired Girl, & Peppermint Patty!
Topics of discussion include:
- peanut butter sandwiches;
- garbage playground taunt songs;
- putting hair poofs & breasts on cartoon birds;
- a delicate whisper of leafblower noise in the background of this sound mix;
- the coining of the superlative "trilbiest";
- chaos muppets;
- Charlie Brown as assassin;
- Aunt Miriam, Marian Call's grizzled in-universe counterpart;
- several exemplars of terrible behavior
