Good Grief~ Charlie Brown!

Should the annual classic~ It's the Great Pumpkin~ Charlie Brown~" be shelved? Does it advocate... bullying? That's the thought of Buzz Bishop. The father thinks a television program that has kids calling each other words like dumb~ blockhead and stupid is wrong. Bishop feels that the classic television program~which first aired on October 27~ 1966~ shows young kids that it's OK to taunt others. What do you think~ does Buzz Bishop have a point? Could watching~ It's the Great Pumpkin~ Charlie Brown~be used as a teaching tool about the topic of bullying?
