Another Predictable Peanuts Cartoon, 30 September 2009
Author: hfan77 from St. Louis Park, MN

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!"
