Santos is the homeland of every member of the band, except for Chorão, who is from São Paulo.When Chorão came to Santos at seventeen (after a difficult and somewhat traumatic childhood) he already had a strong interest in skateboarding and rock music. From time to time he would stand in for a singer of a local rock band when the guy had to go to the bathroom during a show. A musician in another saw Chorão performing during these bathroom breaks and invited him to join his band.

When the band's bass player quit, Chorão found Champignon, who was then twelve. Later on, Chorão decided to start his own band, and invited Champignon and Pelado (Chorão's friend from another local band), and then Marcão and Tiago (a 5th member). The band would continue to have shows in the city without an official name until Chorão crashed his car in a coconut s*** that was named "Charlie Brown Jr."

Producer Rick Bonadio, whom Champignon knew, invited them to make a demo tape and he liked what he heard, and they were soon picked up by Virgin Records.

In 1997 1997 in music , they released the debut album Transpiração Contínua Prolongada ("Continuous, Long Transpiration", a reference to hard work). Well-received by the public, it remains as their biggest hit to date, and CBJ won a VMB (the Brazilian VMA MTV Video Music Awards s) in the Breakthrough Artist category.

In April 2005 members Champignon, Marcão, and Pelado decided to leave the band, alleging 'artistic differences'. They were soon replaced by Heitor Vilela Gomes on bass, Pingüim on drums and beat box, and former band member Thiago Castanho, who returned to play guitar. This new Charlie Brown Jr. formation is toured throughout Brazil and around some cities in the United States in July .
