Trivia

In this cartoon Charlie Brown is playing a football game, and he must kick a football held by Lucy. Just as he is about to kick it, Lucy, naturally, pulls it away. He is then scolded by his teammates for missing the ball! Viewers wrote letters to the producers complaining about this, as Charlie Brown was clearly not at fault. In response, the teammates' harsh reactions were dubbed out and not heard in subsequent airings of this cartoon. See more »

Goofs

Charlie Brown's team scores 14 points in the second half to bring the score from 21-6 to 21-20. To have scored the 14 points Charlie Brown would have to have successfully kicked 2 extra points, which would have meant that either Lucy didn't hold the ball for those two kicks or she didn't pull the ball away on those two kicks.

Franklin: Yeah.
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: [Glaring at Charlie Brown] I know of at least one zero I can tell you about!

Another Predictable Peanuts Cartoon
30 September 2009 | by (St. Louis Park, MN) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing "It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown" when it first aired in the 70s and to me it was interesting to see the little red haired girl, who is named Heather but never, ever seen in the comic strip.

But unfortunately like many of the Peanuts cartoons, it suffers from predictability, especially in the football game scenes when Charlie Brown is the kicker and Lucy is the holder who pulls the ball away. The gag was funny in A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving but becomes repetitive. And Charlie Brown, not Lucy takes the blame for losing the game. It just shows that I never liked Lucy in the cartoons. She's mean, bossy and a bully. It gets worse when she ridicules Charlie Brown at the homecoming dance.

However, the best scene is when Charlie Brown finally kisses the little red haired girl but unfortunately the next day, he doesn't remember anything that happened. It's a result of years of being bullied by Lucy and suffering from low self-esteem. It was something that he accomplished in his own life and he still felt depressed.

Of all the Peanuts cartoons that have aired, I would give it a major "Good grief!"
