Bugger ... I suppose I'll just have to clean this dump up before flying off to the left coast tomorrow.
Well, there's just so much that, while charming in a child's situation, could become disastrous in the adult world. For example, Charlie Brown's curse of his team losing every game translates nicely/badly into his platoon losing every engagement in Vietnam. Lucy's refusal to take no for an answer from Schroeder becomes sexual harassment. And so forth.
Yeah, the idea itself is sort of overdone. But we were in high school and not too aware of standard cliches. (It wasn't part of a zine, alas, just for our own amusement.)
I love the title "You're Short, Bald and Ugly, Charlie Brown," but the rest sounds like it may not live up to it.
Anyway, I'm glad you ended up liking it, or at least appreciating aspects of it.

Pity - I wouldh like to read the rest of it.
As for YSBUCB, it's not all scatological. (Er, only about 2/3 of it.) I like to think I don't normally enjoy that sort of thing (though my affection for the South Park movie might suggest otherwise), but the sheer incongruity of it really caught my fancy.
