"He sure is a funny-looking kid, though."
23 April 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The Peanuts gang is preparing to celebrate Easter. Peppermint Patty and Marcie struggle to make Easter eggs, Snoopy tries to help Woodstock find a new home, and Linus is once again waiting on an enigmatic holiday figure. It's not the Great Pumpkin this time, though. It's the Easter Beagle. One guess on who that will turn out to be. Charlie Brown takes a backseat in this one, as his friends get most of the plot. It's a sweet, smart, funny cartoon, as all of the '60s and '70s Peanuts specials were. They're timeless really. Oh and the groovy soundtrack is a plus. It's not on par with the Christmas or Halloween classics, but it's still pretty good.
