Storyline

With the school election looming, Linus is talked into running for school president. With Lucy and Charlie Brown as his campaign manager and Snoopy and Woodstock assisting, he stands a decent chance of victory. Soon however, he makes unrealistic promises and learns the hard way that preaching about the Great Pumpkin cannot be considered a sound campaign strategy.

Trivia

This program was originally titled "You're Elected, Charlie Brown", a phrase Linus actually speaks early in the show. In later showings, the word "Not" was added to the title, in deference to the fact that the plot actually focuses on Linus' run for student body president. See more »

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

Eighth animated special based on the Charles M. Schulz cartoon strips is one of the better ones, as Linus decides(with Lucy's help) to run for student body president, and how he makes nice speeches and many promises that he may have trouble keeping, especially when he mentions the Great Pumpkin again... Meanwhile, Sally is having trouble with her locker, but has faith in Linus, who is facing stiff competition from a classmate who still seems undecided about who he'll vote for. Amusing and thoughtful special about school life and political realities may be instructive to youngsters, and of course there's Snoopy as Joe Cool. Nice continuity with the Great Pumpkin mention!
