Good grief Chuck, Peppermint Patty is coming to FarleyCon Comic Book Expo. The voice of Peppermint Patty, Patricia Patts will be appearing on August 13, 2022. Patricia voiced Peppermint Patty in You’re the Greatest, Charlie Brown, She’s a Good Skate, Charlie Brown and Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (And Don’t Come Back!).
Patts started as a child actor in the early 1970s performing in local theatre companies in the Pasadena area. At age six, she appeared in her first commercial for Mama Celeste Pizza.
In 1977, Norman Lear was casting for a new version of The Little Rascals. Patts had originally auditioned for the role of Darla, but since she wasn’t the Darla type, they wrote in a new role for her; Rocky. That year she also had a small role in the short-lived TV show, A Year at the Top. In 1978, she auditioned, along with 2,000 other girls, for a role in the Los Angeles touring production of Annie. She won the title role and went on to play the part in San Francisco and Los Angeles between 1978-1979. At the same time, she was also the voice of Peppermint Patty for the Peanuts cartoons.
Patts went on to work on several television shows including Archie Bunker’s Place, TV 101, Student Exchange (TV movie), The Judge, K*I*D*S, and A Place to Call Home (TV movie). She also has roles in the films Party Line and For Keeps.
In 2013, Patts opened a business called Write Off the Row. In 2017, in anticipation of the 40th Anniversary of the musical Annie, she was invited by Inside Edition to New York to celebrate the musical. She was featured on the news show singing “Something was Missing” from Annie.
