Charlie is the third album by Melt-Banana. This album was the first release on their own label, A-Zap.

Charlie features guest appearances by Mike Patton and Mr. Bungle on the song "Area 877 [Phoenix Mix]". Mike Patton says: "MELT... BANANA!" at the beginning of the song and Melt-Banana have sampled this through many of their other songs including "7.2 Seconds Flipping", "Brick Again" and the version of "Bad Gut Missed Fist" on their live album MxBx 1998/13,000 Miles At Light Velocity.

Charlie was named after the film of the same name, based on the novel Flowers for Algernon.[2]
