Good grief! Peter Robbins, the original voice of Charlie Brown, was sentenced to a year in jail and then immediately released and sent to a drug treatment center for threatening his former girlfriend and stalking her plastic surgeon. In the mid-'60s, the voice actor played the famously beleaguered star of numerous Peanuts TV specials, including It's a Charlie Brown Christmas and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Robbins, 56, pled guilty last month and has been in jail since last January for calling his ex-girlfriend 37 times in a day and threatening to kill her and her son if she didn't return his car and his dog (named Snoopy). He also allegedly stalked her female plastic surgeon and demanded a refund for her breast enhancement, calling the office so frequently that the surgeon moved to a hotel and hired an armed guard. Robbins blamed his behavior on his addictions to alcohol and prescription drugs, declaring that treatment was a necessary step to becoming the "the fun-loving person" he once was. In addition to sentencing Robbins to five years' probation, Superior Court Judge Dwayne Moring also ordered him to pay the plastic surgeon $15,082 in restitution and to avoid contacting her for 10 years. Any violations of terms of his probation will lead to a mandatory four-year sentence. Judge Moring borrowed a line from Charlie Brown's friend Lucy in telling Robbins in court: "Don't be a blockhead."
