It's the Great Chumpkin, Charlie Brown
When the Today Show hit the airwaves this morning, it's surprising that, knowing the show was live, the citizens of New York City didn't immediately flee the area en masse. Risking great protest and possible bodily harm, the cast of the show dressed as what should have been one of the most innocuous and sweet bunch of characters on Earth: the Peanuts Gang.
But somewhere in between Al Roker's terrifying Charlie Brown getup and one seriously sinister Snoopy, something (or a lot of things) went horribly awry. For their sake, I hope these people intended to be The Creepiest Peanuts Ever (and Ever).
Gird your loins and follow the links to see Matt Lauer as Lucy, Kathie Lee Gifford as a Woodstock worthy of Hitchcock's The Birds and more, here and here.
