The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon perfectly married his love for Peanuts and hit show Riverdale in a new parody video, and it is impressively on point. If there's one show that was made to be parodied, practically begging for it with its crazy and surreal drama, it's Riverdale. Fallon debuted the parody, aptly titled "Peanuts," on Tuesday night's broadcast.
The Charlie Brown themed tie and the Peanuts theme song during the school dance is synergistic nostalgia heaven.
Riverdale is an American television series based on the characters of Archie Comics.
Peanuts is a syndicated daily and Sunday American comic strip written and illustrated by Charles M. Schulz, which ran from October 2, 1950, to February 13, 2000. The stip was adapted to numerous animated movies, including the Award-winning A Charlie Brown Christmas and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
Thank you, Jimmy, for giving our much-loved Peanuts the Riverdale treatment.
Whether it's a comic strip, a cartoon, or live-action, we love watching Charlie fall for Lucy's tricks.
Don't do it, Charlie!

Someone needs to make a live-action Peanuts show like right now.
Even the Riverdale cast shows up, taking the parody video to a whole new level of meta.
Looks like they were just passing through the hall.
You have to watch Jimmy Fallon's #Riverdale spoof, 'Peanuts'! https://t.co/0HW1KIsQKz https://t.co/PId6LoMLsS— Entertainment Tonight (@Entertainment Tonight)1513162297.0
Even they thought the Peanuts characters were a bit strange -- more strange than themselves!

As in, people really LOVED it.
Maybe it was the doubled nostalgia all perfectly wrapped together into a perfect Christmas treat. Good grief never seemed so good!

"I actually just wrote a song about it... Wanna hear it?"
Poor Archie, maybe you shouldn't let everything that happens inspire a new song.
