It’s a lengthy prison sentence, Charlie Brown.

Peter Robbins, the actor who provided the voice of Charlie Brown for a number of “Peanuts” specials in the 1960s, was sentenced to four years and eight months in prison on Tuesday, a spokeswoman for the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office told TheWrap.

Last month, the 59-year-old pleaded guilty to making criminal threats.

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,” was accused of threatening the manager of a mobile-home park. He also was alleged to have offered $50,000 to have San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore killed.

In 2013, Robbins, 59, pleaded guilty to stalking after allegedly threatening to kill his ex-girlfriend and threatening a plastic surgeon who gave her breast enhancements.
