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>

Goofs

While Charlie Brown, Pig Pen, and Snoopy sound perfectly fine without Schroeder when demonstrating their rock band to Lucy, they aren't able to go on without him at the PTA meeting. See more »

Quotes

Frieda: [she comes in and sits down in front of Schroeder's piano where Lucy usually sits] Schroeder, I think it's disgraceful the way Lucy bothers you, and she's always asking everybody "Why does he always have to play that stupid piano?" I think that's terrible.
[pause]
Frieda: Incidentally, why DO you always have to play this stupid piano?
Lucy van Pelt: [comes in and sees her] What are you doing here?
Frieda: Who wants to know? Maybe I just like music.
Lucy van Pelt: [sits down beside her] Do you like Beethoven?
Frieda: What?
Lucy van Pelt: If you're going to hang ...

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

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.
