Charles M. Schulz considered the arm-wrestling scene between Snoopy and Lucy the best-animated scene of all the Peanuts specials. See more »


During the campfire scene, when the girls are singing to the boys, Linus and Schroeder switch shirts so Linus has the purple one and Schroeder has the red one. See more »


Linus: [writing his essay] The worst was yet to come. It was bad enough at having been so thoroughly thrashed in softball. But there were plans for a nature hike the next day. The campfire activity was a dismal failure.

It's Summer Camp
14 December 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Sixth animated special based on the cartoon strips of Charles M. Schulz deals with Charlie Brown's attempts to write a report on what he did this past summer, and Charlie tells how Lucy signed everyone up for summer camp, where it was the boys against the girls, and the girls won every time, until the last match, which was an arm-wrestling competition between Lucy and the Masked Marvel(Snoopy) that ends quite unexpectedly, but decisively. The problem still remains if poor talentless Charlie Brown can still get a good grade on his report! OK tale is mostly routine until the bright finish with the Masked Marvel. The last one aired during the 1960's.
