Charlie Brown has dealt with some tough childhood moments in the last 65 years, from being rejected by girls to losing his dog to getting bad grades in school, but the heaviest thing he ever had to deal with came courtesy of a little girl named Janice.
Janice was diagnosed with leukemia, and Chuck struggled to find an answer for the TV special's title "Why, Charlie Brown, Why?", leaving him feeling even more nihilistic than before.
And then this short film happened:
Good Grief! Cancer Boy! is a strange little film made by Todd Graham in 1990 that reveals the utter futility of Charlie Brown's very existence- in German!
Todd shows us what Charlie Brown might have become if Charles Schulz had allowed him to grow up...I guess it's a good thing he never aged!
