The beloved character was voiced by Peter Robbins starting in 1963, but just because you have commercial success doesn’t mean you’re immune to the struggles of mental health and substance abuse.
In 2013, Peter Robbins was arrested at Homeland Security port of entry and was charged for threatening to cause death or bodily harm to four victims, including a San Diego police officer. A few months later, he was sentenced to jail for a year for threatening an ex-girlfriend, but instead, he went to seek treatment and after his release, went to a residential drug treatment center. Two years later, Robbins sent threatening letters to the manager of the mobile home park in which he was living in. In a hearing, he stated that he suffered from bipolar disorder and paranoid schizophrenia.
