New Pinball Dictionary: van Pelt Kickback

van Pelt Kickback

A lit kickback promises to save your ball during an outlane drain, then through not firing, weakly firing, or firing late, still results in a drained ball.

Named after Lucille “Lucy” van Pelt, a fictional character in the syndicated comic strip Peanuts, and her tendency to frequently pull the football away from Charlie Brown right as he is about to kick it.
