Decemberween is here. Happiness and cheer.

The comic strip Peanuts was created in 1950 by Charles Schulz, focusing on the misadventures of "lovable loser" Charlie Brown, his dog Snoopy, and their friends. A profound depiction of society from children's perspective, the comic ran through shortly before Schulz's death in 2000; old strips continue in circulation in many newspapers to this day. Its popularity prompted adaptations into over 40 television cartoons, five movies, and two off-Broadway musicals, among other things.

Being such a huge influence, various aspects of the Peanuts comic strips and television specials have been referenced and parodied by The Brothers Chaps in Homestar Runner cartoons. In particular, holiday specials A Charlie Brown Christmas and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown are referenced during the holidays of Decemberween and Halloween.
