[first lines]
Lucy van Pelt:[holding football] Charlie Brown! Oh, Charlie Brown!
Charlie Brown:I can't believe it. She must think I'm the most stupid person alive.
Lucy van Pelt:Come on, Charlie Brown. I'll hold the ball and you kick it.
Charlie Brown:Hold it? Ha! You'll pull it away and I'll land flat on my back and kill myself.
Lucy van Pelt:But Charlie Brown, it's Thanksgiving.
Charlie Brown:What's that got to do with anything?
Lucy van Pelt:Well, one of the greatest traditions we have is the Thanksgiving Day football game. And the biggest, most important tradition of all is the kicking off of the football.
Charlie Brown:Is that right?
Lucy van Pelt:Absolutely. Come on, Charlie Brown. It's a big honor for you.

Today is Thanksgiving. "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" is a must see., 27 November 2008
Author: dsp21953 from United States

Well, today is Thanksgiving and that means one thing to do, for certain that is. I must watch "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving." It has become a tradition for me for the last five years in a row and will continue for the rest of my life. You just can't go wrong with Good Old Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts gang. Watching this special brings the true meaning of Thanksgiving. As usually Snoopy steals the show. Thank you Mr. Charles Schulz for this and all the Peanuts holiday specials. Thanksgiving requires "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" year after year, it is simply tradition. Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts gang on the holidays make the holidays more enjoyable.
