Did you know that there's a whole sub-genre of music video mashups out there using Peanuts cartoon footage? Some of these gems are Christmas related, some are not, but they're all definitely worth watching.

1. Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic - The Police

This is probably the most famous in the sub-genre, and definitely a good way to start to see what all the fuss is about. Am I the only one who thinks Linus actually resembles Sting a little?

2. Peanuts - The Police

Appropriately enough, the genius that did the mashup above followed up with the Police tune "Peanuts." I think the synching is even better than on the first one.

3. Girlfriend - Avril Lavigne

Fun fact: In 2007 the 1970s band The Rubinoos sued Avril Lavigne alleging that her hit "Girlfriend" ripped off their song "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend."

4. The Rockafeller Skank - Fatboy Slim

Did you know? "Right about now, the funk soul brother. Check it out now, the funk soul brother" is a vocal sample of rapper Lord Finesse?

5. Perfect Night For A Hanging - Tourniquet

Tip: You might want to turn the speakers down a notch for this one, which definitely goes to 11.

6. Peanuts Theme Song - Pat Travers

This is the classic Peanuts theme song done as a cover by Pat Travers.

7. Snoopy's Christmas - Royal Guardsmen

Did You Know? The Royal Guardsmen became famous for this song, which was their first big hit. It reached #2 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

8. Hey Ya - OutKast
