Clip du jour: "I got a rock"

Looks like I’m not the only one thinking of Peanuts today. Watching Charlie Brown glumly take inventory of his petrified treats used to make me laugh when I was a kid. Now I see his quiet resignation as something rather heroic: the profound but terribly sad acceptance that some people are just destined to a life in which they…I dunno…get rocks instead of candy…..[long silence]….So, um, how about them awesome Phillies?

    That’s my favorite part of the Great Pumpkin, which I’ve been watching nonstop with my Snoopy-obsessed two-year-old. She has the most awesome taste in cartoons! We all walk around the house saying, “I got a rock!” Next up: It’s Thanksgiving, Charlie Brown! There’s only one problem. My grandma lives in a condominium.

    I always felt so bad for Charlie Brown. I had hoped, in all the Peanuts strips and shows, Charlie Brown would FINALLY get something nice.

    I had a little trouble with the scissors.
    I love the Great Pumpkin so much . . .

    My nine-year-old son decided he’s dressing up as Charlie Brown for Halloween. He’s cutting a bunch of holes in a white sheet and filling a brown paper bag with rocks. As his proud mother, I think this is the greatest idea ever!

    I just watched this the other night. I agree with you. Still kinda funny, but really rather heroic. oh man. charlie brown.

    My 13-year-old daughter and I like to randomly proclaim, “I got a rock.” That scene in Great Pumpkin makes me laugh every time, yet I have to wonder at the cruel adults who give a little kid a rock for Halloween.
    wildecat, your son is awesome! I kind of wish that my kids were still in T-o-T mode so they could be Charlie Brown.

    You’ve heard about the fury of a woman scorned? Well that’s nothing compared to the fury of a woman who’s been cheated out of tricks or treats.

    I love that part. Every year it makes me laugh. Just the way he says, “I got a rock,” is definitely classic. Good grief.
