Two computer boffins who recreated Outkast's HEY YA! video with classic CHARLIE BROWN cartoon characters have been slapped with a lawsuit by the owners of the PEANUTS franchise.

UNITED MEDIA have ignored the Cincinnati, Ohio computer wizard's website plea - "Please don't sue us" - to demand VENIS PRODUCTIONS cease and desist showing the video, which has attracted almost a million Outkast and Charlie Brown fans in days.

The HEY YA! CHARLIE BROWN video has been taken off the website but has already been picked up by other sites.
