This 'Stranger Things' x 'Charlie Brown Christmas' Mashup Is Everything
Get in the holiday spirit with Eleven and company – oh yes, and also Barb.
We definitely didn’t see this mashup coming, but no complaints here. Although it’s still early, this Stranger Things x Charlie Brown Christmas homage definitely has us excited for the upcoming holiday season. Illustrated in the style of Charles M. Schulz’s beloved Peanuts series, the clip reimagines the cartoon’s classic characters as the cast of Stranger Things instead. As Will Byers contemplates life after returning from the “Upside Down,” he embarks on a heartfelt journey to find his holiday spirit. Joined by Dustin, Finn, Caleb and Eleven (who provides “psychiatric help” via a 5¢ stand), Will begins to gain perspective by talking to the people who care about him the most.
Joyce Byers also makes an appearance (well sort of), speaking in a “wah wah” voice distinctive to the Charlie Brown universe. In addition, Snoopy is portrayed as the monster and Barb (rest in peace) even makes an appearance at the very end. Watch the full clip in the endearingly whimsical video above.
