Banksy Has Worked With Charlie Brown Before

A lot of people criticized Banksy's use of Charlie Brown as one of his pieces in LA, but this is not the first time Banksy has worked with Charlie Brown.

Banksy released this piece with Charlie Brown standing under the shadow of an airplane soon after 9/11.

While the piece in LA was not one of our personal favorites, maybe Banksy utilizes the Charlie Brown imagery when he wants to take the viewers back to a simple, child-like state.

Hell, in this day and age, and since we don't seem to know the whole story behind Banksy's pieces, maybe Banksy bought the rights to the Charles Schulz characters before using them.

Thanks to Fragile from the Banksy Forums for pointing this out.
