Some monsters are in your face with how scary and bad they really are, but once in a while, you get a monster of the worst kind. Nothing is more frightening than an evil demon trapped in the body of an seemingly sweet looking young girl, well, except for genital warts. That is way scarier. So for this weeks Death-cember Monster of the Week, I present you with the vicious....
Lucy van Pelt!
Created by Charles M. Schulz and introduced on March 3, 1952 for the Peanuts comic strip, Lucille "Lucy" van Pelt has appeared in numerous films and television specials, most notably A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965), It's Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown (1992), Charlie Brown's Christmas Tales (2002), and most recently, I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown (2003), all of which are her gateway into the Holiday Monster of the Week.
There are plenty of bad kids to be had and while the threat of a cartoon would not seem to be much of one per say, with a child as mean-spirited, cynical, and downright terrible as Lucy van Pelt, she is truly deserving of Monster status. Snarky, condescending, and the way she takes advantage of decent guys like that poor Charlie Brown with her football follies, she really is a despicable character.
She's got a bad attitude, a bad temper, and a bad hairdo...Charlie Brown might be a good man, but you, Lucy van Pelt, are not.
