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.

Oh Good Grief
1 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I only say "Oh Good Grief" because any one who knows the Peanuts knows that the famous line of Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy and all the other members of the peanut gang.

Normally the plots of these specials would focus on Charlie Brown for this time around the plot center around Linus as he runs for School President with Charlie Brown and Lucy serving has his campaign managers. Plus Snoopy and his Joe Cool look and he does have a funny segment.

Now this is not your normal every day Charlie Brown special as it doesn't have the focus on Charlie Brown. With Linus as the center character it does make it different.

The animation for this special is what you can expect from any Charlie Brown and it is very good as well as it is well time animation along with the traditions that makes The Peanut Gang special.

The voice acting is very funny as you can get a good laugh for each joke from the characters in the special plus with a interesting song for Snoopy in the film.

The story for the film is very good as any fan of The Peanut gang can appreciate this film for kids and adults.

There is just nothing that holds the greatness from making this fun for all ages.

I give You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown an 8 out of 10
