Storyline

In order to win the ever resistant Schroeder's affections, Lucy follows Peppermint Patty's advise and talks him into performing for a PTA meeting. Unfortunately, Patty, in her usual level of sensitivity, fails to mention until after Schroeder's agreement that only rock music will be on the program. Now Lucy, knowing that Schroeder would never agree to that, must find a solution. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Quotes

Schroeder: [Schroeder is playing a song while the dual-staff music notes are shown on the screen as he plays them; somewhere in the middle of him playing, Lucy's face appears between the staffs, yet he does not take notice for a little bit; when he does, he stops playing] Don't tell me I've grown accustomed to *that* face.

It's MusicBand Time

Seventh animated special based on the Charles M. Schulz cartoon strips is also the first aired during the 1970's, and is about Lucy's infatuation with Schroder, but he only loves Beethoven, until Lucy decides to enroll him in the PTA music show, but only if he'll play modern music, something he refuses to do, despite Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and Pig Pen already seeming quite capable of going on without him... Strange special is one of the weakest, with a flimsy plot and inconsistent characterizations(since when can poor talentless Charlie play an instrument? Did he take lessons?) Goofy comedy with spray can music and PTA members is cringe-worthy. Entirely forgettable.
