Charlie Brown’s Rap Song: Just Slightly More Out Of Tune With The Times Than “Flashbeagle”

Apparently some genius at the ABC promo department had a “genius” idea for proper promotion of this week’s screening of the Halloween classic It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown: Turn Charlie Brown into a somewhat more flow-challenged version of Poochie, complete with retroscripted mouth-movements. One has to wonder just how this idea—which is executed as poorly as you might expect—came about. Inept pandering to the “kids” of today? Too much nostalgic listening to “Dur Dur D’Être Bébé” on the drive into work? Hopes that outraged bloggers would do the show-promoting legwork for them? Well, hey. Clip after the jump, if you dare. Not for nothing, but wouldn’t Charlie Brown’s delivery be a little less… sprightly? I can see Linus being all Jordy-like and excitable, but not C.B.
