Confessions of a Blockhead

I have avoided doing much coverage of Peter Robbins, the voice of Charlie Brown in the earliest animated specials, in this blog. His crimes and his mental health issues, while salacious, really are outside the focus of The AAUGH Blog.

However, with his release from prison comes some news that is very much AAUGH.com material. He has stated his intention to write an memoir, Confessions of a Blockhead. While the focus of the work will be on his incarceration and what it has lead to, its clear from title and statements that this work will be informed by his Peanuts background.

May he find success in moving forward on a straight and narrow path. I look forward to covering his book when it comes out.
