Voice of Charlie Brown — Grown Up and in Trouble
Is there a person on earth who hasn't seen the Charlie Brown/Peanuts Christmas Special from 1965? Well, from that classic cartoon until 1969, the voice of Charlie Brown was supplied by a child actor by the name of Peter Robbins. He was great as Charlie Brown and he sounded just like we all thought CB might sound.
But, child actors grow up. Very few of them stay out of trouble and Peter Robbins is no exception.
Robbins pleaded guilty to two counts of stalking and ten counts of making criminal threats in April, and openly cried in court as his sentence was handed down.
Peter Robbins, 56, was handed a 12-month jail term and five years on probation. And just to show you that judges really are human and have a sense of humor, the judge added, "If I can borrow a line from 'Peanuts,' sir, I'm going to grant probation. If you adhere to those terms, you won’t go to prison. So, don’t be a blockhead.’
The former voice actor was arrested in January for stalking his former partner, allegedly calling her as many as 37 times in 24 hours, telling her he would kill her and her son.
