There’s A Stranger Things/Peanuts Christmas Crossover!!!

Attention Stranger Things Fans! “Merry Christmas, Will Byers” will provide the holiday fix you need while you await the show’s next season.

There’s been a lot of good TV series that came out year and a whole lot of them were on Netflix. Quite likely the best was Stranger Things, which touched all the member berries buttons of the early 1980s by somehow combining the styles and stories of two Stephens who dominated the era, Spielberg and King, while adding dashes of Alien and X-Files to create something completely new, yet very familiar.

As most fans know, a second season is in development, but in the meantime, a fan has created something amazing, just in time for the approaching holiday season. Listed as “A Stranger Things Christmas” on Youtube, but showing the title “Merry Christmas, Will Byers”, this animated short goes meta on the nostalgia by taking a show that was already a throwback-remix and then making it into a Charlie Brown Special.

Stranger Things in-jokes abound but the video keeps itself faithful to Peanuts too, with Will’s mom, Joyce Byers, speaking in the trombone “Wa-Wa” voice that all adults in Charlie Brown’s world do.

Anyway, you have to check this out.
