I am in a meeting with a group of people and we are going through introductions. Each of us was asked to tell something "interesting" about ourselves. The team leader started off by telling us that, as a child, he was the voice of Schroeder in the Peanuts movies and TV specials.

I am unusually thrilled by this. :)

This claim is thrilling but somewhat suspect, owing to the fact that few people voiced Schroeder more than once, and those that did wound up having television careers. NOTE: this is based solely on combing IMDB, not on any actual Peanuts-related expertise.

He's got three of them that I can find. He did say that they had to change out kids a lot as voices changed.

Awesome, if true!

When I was in sixth grade, Charles Schulz gave a phone interview to my class. One of the things he discussed was making the first animated special. The director was on an airplane and he heard a young boy talking and thought, "That's the perfect voice for Charlie Brown!" So he approached the boy and his mother, introduced himself, and explained that he was working on an animated special based on Peanuts.

They had never heard of it.
