Charles M. Schulz’s world of Peanuts was always a little odd, with a flying doghouse piloted by a beagle, but it’s now gotten even weirder thanks to Netflix hit “Stranger Things.”

In a three-minute animated short created by Leigh Lahav and Oren Mendez, “A Stranger Things Christmas” combines the streaming horror series with the Peanuts gang to create what could become a new holiday classic.

Patterned after “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” the short follows Will Byers, who returns home from the upside down but can’t seem to shake off that traumatic experience.

“Maybe what you really need is some good psychiatric help,” he’s told, so he seeks Eleven for counseling.

“Echoes” is the only response that he gets.

Even his mom, who now speaks with the “wah wah” voice of all “Peanuts” adults, isn’t any use.

“Sometimes, I just don’t think you can talk to grown-ups unless it’s through light-up letters on a wall,” Will whines.

Find out if he got over his “crippling anxiety” in the video above.

Netflix has ordered nine more episodes of “Stranger Things,” which will take place in 1984.

As for Snoopy and co., “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” celebrated its 50th anniversary earlier in October, and its light doesn’t look to be fading any time soon.
