Charlie Brown voice actor Peter Robbins is dead of suicide at 65

Peter Robbins, the voice actor for the Charlie Brown movies in the 1960’s, has died at age 65. His family has confirmed that the cause of death was suicide.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Robbins struggled in the last decade, spending time behind bars for criminal threats he allegedly made against the San Diego County sheriff and others. He also spent time in rehab as he battled an addiction to drugs and alcohol, the outlet reported.

The voice actor advocated seeking help for mental health problems after he was released from prison in 2019.

“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,” Robbins told the outlet. “I came out of prison, and I’m a better person for it. I’m much more humble and grateful and thankful that I lived through the experience.”
