So much of Stranger Things‘ irresistible pull stems from its uncanny ability to push all your nostalgia buttons. It feels like classic Steven Spielberg and vintage Stephen King, referencing pop culture touchstones and reminding Gen Xers and older Millennials of a time when middle school kids were allowed to roam freely. But what if Stranger Things went even further? What if it doubled down on its nostalgic appeal by transforming itself into another childhood favorite, A Charlie Brown Christmas?
A Stranger Things Christmas imagines Will Byers struck by a downright Charlie Brown-esque sense of ennui right around the holiday, and going around getting advice from his old D&D buddies. And yes, they get a good Barb-related jab in there. Watch the Stranger Things Peanuts mashup below (but be warned there are major spoilers if you haven’t finished Stranger Things season one).

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
It’s been 65 years since Charles M. Schulz first delivered Charlie Brown and his dog Snoopy to newspapers on October 2nd, 1950. The comic would go on to span 17,897 strips through February 13th, 2000, and at its peak, ran in over 2,600 newspapers in 75 countries, translated into 21 languages. And now all that rich history is coming to the big screen with The Peanuts Movie.
The final Peanuts Movie trailer celebrates the seven-decade history of friendship and fun that has come with Charlie Brown and the whole gang, and brings it into the 21st century with a stylish but reserved computer animation makeover that keeps everything we love about Schulz’s iconic illustrations, while bringing them into the third dimension.

Given how ubiquitous Charlie Brown and Snoopy still are, it’s a bit surprising to realize they haven’t been the subjects of their own full-length feature film in 35 years. But that changes this fall with The Peanuts Movie, which gives Charles M. Schulz‘s beloved creations a 3D CG upgrade.
On paper, that description sounds kind of alarming — does that mean we’re in for a cooler, sexier Charlie? As the new Peanuts Movie poster reveals, you needn’t fear. The gang’s all here, and they still look like their own delightful selves. Check out the Peanuts Movie poster after the jump.
