With that added pressure, he hopes to put in a good showing at the football where he is placekicker. Unfortunately, Lucy is supposed to hold the ball for him... Written by

Since I am not American, I have no idea what a homecoming queen is and I am not familiar with their football rules. This Peanuts TV special is mainly about both so I was a little bit lost for most of it.
The story has Charlie Brown struggle (and unfairly lose) a football match and then finally get to meet his wannabe girlfriend (the little red-headed girl who finally see and is called Heather) at the Homecoming Ball (whatever that is). The build of dread as he approaches her is quite amusing and when he finally kisses her the reaction is brilliant. Too bad the rest of it is below par. Though the scenes with Woodstock pretending to be a TV cameraman and flying around on Snoopy (who's ear act as chopper blades) are typically surreal and undoubtedly the best moments.
