Video of the Day: Before Charlie Brown Discovered Pot

Last week, in our preview for the Boxcar's production of Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead, we revealed that a teenage version of Linus van Pelt, from Charles Schulz' beloved Peanuts comic, takes the ashes of the blue blanket his younger self was famously attached to and smokes 'em with some herb.

If you'd rather preserve the kids in their less-destructive youth, here's the official trailer for the 2011 Peanuts television special Happiness Is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown. It is the first special without the direct involvement of Schulz, but the producers preserved the early 1960s animation style and used only the characters from that period.

Dog Sees God runs at the Boxcar through August 25th.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
