Stranger Things Meets A Charlie Brown Christmas in Epic Animated Parody

The holidays have come early, courtesy of a new mash-up that combines our love of both Stranger Things and A Charlie Brown Christmas.

In a new animated short created by YouTubers Leigh Lahav and Oren Mendez, Will Byers struggles to get in the Christmas spirit following his recent trip to the Upside Down. After confiding in Dustin, Eleven and Lucas about his emotional distress, they all come together (along with the Demogorgon) to show their friend that he has the support of those closest to him.

Will, delighted by the gesture, then monologues that all that really matters is the “people who truly care about you. The folks that would do anything to get you out of a creepy, parallel swamp universe.” Barb, on the other hand, may beg to differ.
