Jimmy Fallon does Peanuts parody in the style of CW's Riverdale

RIVERDALE - the cool, sexy version of the ARCHIE comics - is a phenomenon. Merging the squeaky clean characters of Archie, Jughead, Betty, and Veronica into a plot that involves murder, rape, and incest has struck a nerve in the popular consciousness. It was a gamble, but it has seemed to have paid off for the CW.

Taking that same template, Jimmy Fallon's THE TONIGHT SHOW has done the same with Charles Schultz's PEANUTS comics. It has murder (with Linus instead of Jason Blossom), the unfortunate affair with a teacher (doing the classic "WOP-WOP-WOP" voice), and even having Charlie Brown make terrible music like Archie from RIVERDALE. Overall, it's a pretty spot-on parody (when it's not being too "wink-wink-nudge-nudge" like the joke about the actors' age), so check it out if you're a fan of the show in the embed above.

Meanwhile, as the midseason finale of RIVERDALE has just been released, the midseason premiere will be January 17th, 2018
