A motorcross, a race of motorbikes through a series of obstacles, provides the occasion for Charlie Brown's latest attempt to win at something. He selects Linus as his pit crew and goes to a store to select a bike, and due to insufficient funds, he must settle for a tiny, run-down putt-putt. The majority of Charlie's opponents are eliminated in the race, and Charlie, wearing a makeshift helmet carved from a pumpkin, finds himself in close competition with his friend, tomboy Peppermint Patty, and the Masked Marvel (a.k.a. Snoopy, Charlie's dog). Written by

I remember this story of Good Ole' Chuck the moto-cross racer. Man it's been years since I have seen this and it was only once unfortunately. This is a 1975 classic Charlie Brown episode and I would love to find this on D.V.D. now for my 2 children.
A story not just about competing, but being a good sport as well. This like just about all the other 'PEANUTS' videos are great. My personal favorites, range in time from 1965 to 1986 Those are some of the old style animation before they had computer for everything. The old animation style is warmer and more friendly, much more authentic to me. So if you are reading this and you have kids, you can't go wrong, pick up a copy of one of your favorite 'Peanuts' episodes today!!
