Homestar as Charlie Brown and Strong Sad as Linus
The Peanuts give inspiration in more ways than one

Various aspects of the famous Peanuts comic strips and television specials have been referenced and parodied by The Brothers Chaps in Homestar Runner cartoons. In particular, A Charlie Brown Christmas is often referenced, especially at Decemberween.

Contents

Sightings

Toons

  • A Holiday Greeting
    • The page title "Sponsored By Dolly Madison!" refers to the snack cake company that sponsored the Peanuts holiday specials.
    • The spinning "SPECIAL" logo is the same one used by CBS at the beginning of the holiday specials.
    • The screen at the end reading "Copyright 1965 Free Country, USA" is a reference to the year in which A Charlie Brown Christmas debuted.
    • Strong Bad says "Lights please" in a scene almost identical to when Linus van Pelt was in the auditorium in A Charlie Brown Christmas..
  • The Best Decemberween Ever
    • Homestar Runner's hat is similar to the one worn by Charlie Brown in A Charlie Brown Christmas.
    • While Homestar and Strong Sad talk, Strong Sad holds his head in his hand in the same manner Charlie Brown and Linus often did while leaning against the wall.
    • One of Marzipan's signs reading that Decemberween is too commercial, also similarly referenced in A Charlie Brown Christmas, in which Charlie Brown thinks Snoopy has gone commercial when he sees him decorating his dog house to enter a "lights and display" contest.
    • The main characters singing a song at the end of the toon is a reference to the end of A Charlie Brown Christmas.
  • The House That Gave Sucky Treats
    • The Poopsmith holds up a sign saying "Give us something good instead". The font used for the sign is called Peanuts, a font made to look like Charles Schulz's lettering used in Peanuts comics.
    • The viewer has the option to give Strong Mad and The Cheat rocks, which Charlie Brown received from every house he visited in It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
  • 3 Times Halloween Funjob
    • Homestar pronouncing "pounds" as "libs" is similar to a comic where Lucy van Pelt informs Charlie Brown she just learned that "there are 16 ozzes in a lib".
  • Halloween Fairstival
    • Marzipan's stall of fruit reading "A Chorus Of Autumnal Vegatables Is In" is a reference to Lucy's psychiatric help booth.
  • Bug In Mouth Disease
    • At one point during the Caleb Rentpayer Marathon, the music sounds very similar to the music in It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
  • Happy Hallow-day
    • Strong Bad has a witch mask identical to the one worn by Lucy in It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
  • Decemberween Short Shorts
    • When Strong Sad and Strong Bad write letters, the positioning is similar to scenes where the Peanuts characters are shown writing letters.
