Did You Know?

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 »
Plot holes: 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.See more »

As Far As I'm Concerned, The Bottom of the Barrel, 24 November 2006
Author: cricharddavies

Okay. I'm not all that familiar with American educational traditions, but surely elementary school-kids don't have homecoming dances? From what I understand, it's more of a high school thing ... and the Peanuts gang are always supposed to be kids in elementary school. So right from the start, I'm jolted out of my enjoyment of this special by that.

Then we start adding other sources of incredulity. Charlie Brown has, for some reason, been picked to be the escort for the Homecoming Queen (the Little Red-Haired Girl.) Yahbuhwha? How did that happen? Was he wearing the sack again when the pick was made? And the peanuts gang are playing football -- against much bigger kids, I might add -- while wearing helmets over their usual clothes. Including Lucy in her blue dress.

Ah, yes, Lucy. Everyone knows that Lucy is going to pull the football out of the way when Charlie Brown goes to kick it. Everyone! She's famous for it! So who in their right mind would choose either of them as a place kicker and place kick holder? And then they blame Charlie Brown for screwing up? Doesn't anyone see Lucy holding the ball? Come on! Finally, we have the cheerleaders -- cheerleaders! -- doing a Snoopy cheer. While Snoopy is, in our world, a big time celebrity, in the milieu of Peanuts, he's just Charlie Brown's dog (and to a degree a neighborhood mascot.) While I can suspend disbelief enough to have him driving the kids in "Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown", and being treated as human by most of the kids, the idea that he'd be the subject of cheers from people who probably don't know who he is strain my suspension to its breaking point.

There's one good moment in this special, that being of course the raptures that Charlie Brown flies into after he gives the Little Red-Haired Girl a kiss on the cheek. It's sweet but not cloying, but not enough to save this show, sad to say.
