Good grief! Just when you think the Netflix hit series Stranger Things can’t get any more awesome, along comes a randomly trending video on the Internet to prove you wrong!
Youtube user OnlyLeigh created the perfect nostalgic video mash-up referencing the series and one of the most beloved cartoons of all time. The video shows all of your favorite Stranger Things characters like Will, Dustin, Eleven and even the demogorgon as if they were created with the universe of Charles Schulz’s Peanuts (specifically within A Charlie Brown Christmas).
They story is titled Merry Christmas Will Byers and follows Will (a Charlie Brown type character) who is searching for the reasoning behind his unhappiness. He asks for help from all of his friends but, even Eleven (who is running Lucy’s Psychiatrist stand) can’t seem to offer him an answer. Eventually, in true Peanuts style, Will realizes that all you really need is to be surrounded by those you love and who love you. Truly a touching sentiment, similar to that for which the Peanuts gang has become known.
The clever and extremely well done video is the perfect combination of heart with extra doses of nostalgia! Check it out!
PS. Be sure you watch until the end for a very special appearance from our beloved Barb!!
