Charlie Brown Voice Actor Peter Robbins Passes Away At 65

The man behind a voice that is known and loved by fans of all ages is dead at the age of 65.

According to the New York Post , Peter Robbins was a voice actor for Charlie Brown. He died after a struggle with mental illness.

Television’s most iconic career

Robbins was 9 years old when he became the first to portray the iconic character from the cartoon strip A Charlie Brown Christmas.

He continued his voice work on the Halloween-themed Charlie Brown. Robbins was also featured on five other credits, as Charlie Brown’s voice, and a few TV shows, such as Rawhide and Blondie.

Later in his life, he was arrested for stalking and making criminal threats.

Robbins was born in California and was living in San Diego at his time of death. One local reporter remembered the man he had been close to over the years.

Phil Blauer explained that Robbins gave him the nickname “Scoop,” which he shared with his audience as something he would treasure forever.

“Humble and grateful and thankful”

“Rest in Peace Charlie Brown, say ‘hi’ to Linus for me up in heaven,” Blauer continued.

After he was released from a stint behind bars in 2019, Robbins became an advocate for mental health care, asserting at the time: “I would recommend to anybody that has bipolar disorder to take it seriously because your life can turn around in the span of a month, like it did to me.”

Despite all his failures, he maintained that he was “a stronger person” after serving time in prison.

“I’m much more humble and grateful and thankful that I lived through the experience,” he said.

Agent Dylan Novak remembered his “dear friend” and the tragic life he led, describing Robbins as “the most generous celebrity” that he had ever met. Despite needing money “more than anyone else at the shows he attended,” Novak said that Robbins “gave away so much free merchandise because he couldn’t stand someone to walk away sad.”
