The man who voiced Charlie Brown in the classic Peanuts TV specials pleaded guilty on Wednesday to threatening violence against a plastic surgeon from La Jolla, Calif., as well as a former girlfriend.
California’s City News Service reports that Peter Robbins, 56, who is charged with stalking and making criminal threats toward Dr. Lori Saltz and his ex, Shawn Kern, a client of Saltz’s. Robbins faces up to three years in prison and will be sentenced next month.
As previously reported, Saltz obtained a temporary restraining order against Robbins during a Jan. 3 hearing. According to court papers, Robbins threatened to “break her in half” after claiming she’d botched a breast-enhancement procedure on Kern.

Robbins, who paid for the operation, broke up with Kern following an incident where he grabbed her by the neck and demanded they collect the money back from Saltz. After the split, he called Saltz’s office and also left a voice message for Kern saying: “You better hide, Shawna. I’m coming for you. I’m going to find you in Sun Valley or wherever the [expletive] you live and I’m going to kill you.”
Afraid for her life, Saltz hired security and began staying at a hotel; Robbins bought a gun, which he had not yet received, and visited a shooting range.
He was arrested in late January while re-entering the United States from Tijuana, Mexico.
At 9-years-old, Robin began voicing the character of Charlie Brown in a series of animated Peanuts specials that turned into holiday classics such as A Charlie Brown Christmas and It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
