Good grief — the man who used to provide the voice for beloved cartoon character Charlie Brown has once again found himself in legal hot water.

Peter Robbins, who voiced Charlie Brown in 1960s TV specials including “He’s Your Dog, Charlie Brown,” “You’re in Love, Charlie Brown” and “It Was a Short Summer, Charlie Brown,” pleaded guilty to making criminal threats on Tuesday.

According to the Associated Press, Robbins (pictured above) was accused of threatening the manager of a mobile-home park, and also offering $50,000 to have San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore killed.

The 59-year-old Robbins faces four years and eight months in prison.

A spokeswoman for the San Diego County District Attorney’s office has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.

In 2013, Robbins pleaded guilty to stalking after allegedly threatening to kill his ex-girlfriend and threatening a plastic surgeon who gave her breast enhancements.
