Most of the Peanuts gang is having trouble at school, but none more than Charlie Brown. In fact, he is told that he needs an "A" on a field trip report on an art museum or he will fail his grade. Unfortunately, Peppermint Patty, over-tired by Marcie waking her up at 4:00 in the morning, inadvertently distracts Charlie Brown and his sister from their group and they all mistake a neighboring supermarket for the art museum. Even as they try to understand why all the displays are for sale so cheaply, Patty's weariness and her own ambivalent feelings about Chuck causes her to blurt out some hurtful comments about him. Now, Charlie Brown is going to have to realize his basic mistake in his report, while Marcie and Peppermint Patty search for a way of making amends to the boy they both secretly like in their own way.

My alarm clock didn't go off!

Maybe I wound it too tight. Sometimes if you wind an alarm clock too tight, it won't go off.
We're all a little that way.

You're really something, do you know that? I've never seen anyone who is so uptight about school. Why do you just relax?

Another classic by Charles Schultz. I love this as I loved all other Peanuts animated shows. Charlie Brown is stressing over his grades in school. The gang takes a trip to the museum and have to write a paper on thier experience. The problem is that Charlie Brown, Sally, Snoopy, Marci & Peppermint Patty end up in a supermarket next to the museum. Marci is the only one to figure it out, though. Hearing Peppermint Patty describe the display of canned tomatoes as "pop art" was great! I though t it was brilliant when the rest of the group thought the prices of groceries was the museums attempt to try and raise money to stay open. Mistaking the butcher shop for dinosaur remains...too funny! I think you'll enjoy this.
