ToonMZ Linus Van Pelt of Peanuts Fame to Appear on Hoarders

Former child star, Linus Van Pelt (no relation to Stephanie Van Pelt), has been tapped to be featured on an upcoming episode of the hit show “Hoarders”.

Recently, ToonMZ, spent a few minutes with Linus about his upcoming appearance.

“It’s all Lucy and Snoopy’s fault” (referring to his older sister Lucy Van Pelt and his best friends dog). “For years, they tried to take my blanket and I successfully fended them off each and every time. Then one day, I got up to get my bottle of Makers Mark and took my eyes off my blanket for a split second. That was the moment Lucy and Snoopy had been waiting on forever.”

After a few moments to blot his eyes, Linus continued his story.

“It was at that moment that I realized I needed a backup plan. I needed more blankets. I knew I would not survive this cruel life with only one blanket and cruel friends. I have spent every day of my life finding and storing every blanket I could get my pudgy little fingers on. Salvation Army, Goodwill, Wal-Mart and anywhere I can find a blanket either old or new, is not safe.”

ToonMZ was not able to get a direct (or honest) estimate from Linus about how many blankets he has collected but our team of expert guestimators was able to get a quick peek in his condo and came up with approximately 1,924,000 blankets.

Update: ToonMZ has just learned that the estate of the late Charles Schultz has given its blessing to an upcoming “Peanuts” special entitled “It’s the Great Hoarder, Charlie Brown”

    ROFL! I knew he had to have more than one. How else could it have not been totally ratty after being dragged everywhere?

  2. George says:

    I can’t stop laughing at Linus’ expression. His look alone is worht the price of the whole cartoon. Good job, man! I know he’s got Sally buried somewhere underneath all that junk. 😀

    • Bearman says:

      If his expression is all I needed I could have saved time drawing that damn background. YOu know I hate backgrounds.

  3. nursemyra says:

    haha….. you should sell the video 😉

  4. Comedy Plus says:

    That’s a lifetime of hoarding indeed. Can’t wait to see how this turns out.

    Have a terrific day. 🙂

  5. Mark Stokes says:

    Perfect, Bearman! Love it! Happiness is a cluttered house full of warm blankets!

  6. oh dear god this is one of your best yet! still laughing; literally out loud. Thanks again for your humor, sense of the absurd, creativity and as always..fabulous cartoon.

  7. Binky says:

    I’ve heard he hoards peanuts, too.

  8. Scott says:

    That is absolutely hilarious–ingeniously original!

  9. James says:

    I really love these child star things.

  10. Deb says:

    OMG! Thanks for starting off my day with a good laugh!…one of your funniest yet, Bearman!

  11. I never figured out how Linus could get away with dragging his blanket all over the place without getting smacked around and I couldn’t…

  12. HA!
    Guess who has been spending a little too much time at Bed Bath & Beyond!?
    (And no – it’s not me – they won’t let me in the parking lot)

  13. Nate Fakes says:

    Starts with a blanket, then another blanket – and another. Psychiatric help is available, Linus.

  14. Laura says:

    See this is why I’m glad to have internet, toons such as this make it all worth the while.. Hi Bearman I missed these

  15. jynksie says:

    I’ve also heard that Marcie was found to have an addiction to eating Peppermint Patties! I think she was on an episode of “celebrity rehab”.

    I’ve also heard the red haired girl went missing, was last seen with a bald guy wearing yellow!

    I’ll stop now! o.O [wink]

  16. But if you take away all of those blankets, you take away all of his security!

  17. Awesome, couldn’t have made it sound any more real, I love it.

  18. Funny. I like where you are going with this Toon MZ.

  19. Chris K says:

    Ha ,ha Looks like Linus also put on a few lb’s as he got older.

  20. G. B. Miller says:

    Up next, Lucy Van Pelt’s football fetish and the kite eating tree shares his top ten most edible kites!

    Only on the Cartoon Underworld!

  21. DadaHyena says:

    That’s nothing…you should see PigPen’s place. Too gruesome for the censors to show!

  22. Wow, he really let himself go!

  23. Bo Lumpkin says:

    I think you are really on to somethin’. The possibilities are endless…Eddie Haskel…Dennis the Menace. I would love to see how Margaret turned out. You could even use nursery rhymes. I really love these.

  24. Dr. Cynicism says:

    HA! I just love the concept of a ToonMZ.

  25. lisleman says:

    He was child star of what show? Unless you mean he was a cartoon child star but then I didn’t know Linus had a last name. Linus was the piano player right? Did pig-pen have a name?
    One last question – Bearman do you hoard cartoons?

    • Bearman says:

      I am playing off the fact that as a child Linus was a child star of Peanuts as if he was an actual actor.

      Yes he did. You are thinking of Schroeder. He played the piano.

      I think pig-pen was his name. Don’t know if he had a birth name.

      NO. Everything is on my computer. I don’t know where people who draw the stuff by hand on boards keep the stuff.

  26. I blame Charlie Brown’s sister. Her constant sexual harassment brought him to this!

  27. Tony McGurk says:

    Love this one Bearman, I love all your comics but this one is extra great. You just never know what childhood suffering will lead to. Who ever thought Linus would turn blanket hoarder? I thought that one solitary favourite blankie would be all he would need for his emotional support.
