Check This Out! Jimmy Fallon Mashes Up ‘Riverdale’ With ‘Peanuts’

There are three things from my childhood that I hold dearly: Lego, Archie Comics, and Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts. Now, Jimmy Fallon has mashed two of those three things together in a fan parody that is actually pretty well done. Well, if you can get past the fact Jimmy Fallon and his sidekick Higgins are in it (and that last part alone almost ruins it). Check out the Peanuts trailer, imagining Charlie Brown and the gang as if they were part of Riverdale. And beware of special guest stars, and a cute beagle.

Not going to lie, I would watch this. Of course, only if they actually cast good actors, and ditched whatever-the-fuck that weird music was. But they managed to take Charlie Brown and give it that CW look and it didn’t completely screw up the property.

Oh, and that dancing was SPOT ON at the end.

  • Nokoo

    Please refrain from posting Jimmy Fallon on this site. Thank you.

  • Haha thanks. Yes Fallon’s laugh is super annoying. If I’m ever on that show I’m calling him out on it.

    Oooh, that’s why I didn’t get the joke about Charlie Brown. And I think that it would be have been awesome to link Linus freezing to death to waiting all night in the pumpkin patch. I can’t believe he missed that!
    To be honest, I’m not a real fan of Fallon. (He had the original fake laugh that is now being copied by Kimmel and Corden.) I think you would be a more effective writer for the show than the ones they currently have! 😛

  • I knew I could count on you for a comment! Haha I think Charlie was a mashup of Archie and Jughead from the show.

    I was seriously waiting for the Linus death to become the “guys he just froze to death. It was like extremely cold last night and he waited in that pumpkin patch in a t shirt and threadbaren blanket”

    But Fallon wouldn’t think of that. Nooooo. He’d rather have some weird ass dubstep music with fog horns.

    Wow, Riverdale seems pretty dark. I thought it was going to be upbeat and kitschy like the comic book strip. I love Peanuts as well and the ongoing joke about Charlie Brown (not) kicking the football. Which Archie character is he supposed to be? The curl throws me for a loop especially since Blockhead only had about 3 hairs on his head. LOL

    Awwww, poor Linus! How could they do that to him?
