Quotes

Charlie Brown: [as Snoopy eats an enormous yet appetizing dinner] You know, I've been thinking about you, and I've decided what's wrong with you. You know what's wrong with you? You're overly civilized, Snoopy. That's what's wrong with you. You're overly civilized. Good grief, what a dog. I hope you can digest all that food.

What A Horrible Night To Have A Nightmare...
13 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, I know that that was from the Castlevania video game series, but I just like to add a little humor you know. But anyway, in this Peanuts cartoon, Snoopy has a nightmare in which he is being mistreated as a sled dog in the Arctic, and what's ironic about that is that it happened on the same day that Charlie Brown told him about how sled dogs didn't really get that much treatment. Now what did I think of this? If you ask me, I say that it is a great time! What A Nightmare Charlie Brown is a classic Peanuts cartoon featuring Charlie Brown and his dog Snoopy.

Peanuts has been a big part of my life, I have seen numerous specials and read numerous comic strips an I haven't seen a bad one yet! This one is not as good as the best one, A Charlie Brown Christmas (but hey, what is), but nevertheless, this one is a great way to spend a half an hour watching! You'll see Snoopy have a horrible nightmare in which he is going through a lot of abuse while serving as a sled dog under his owner (seen only as a silhouette). There are not very many recurring characters in this special, considering that only Snoopy and Charlie Brown appear. But hey, I like that, it makes this inventive and original.

So all in all, this cartoon may not be as great as A Charlie Brown Christmas, but nevertheless, it's still a classic Peanuts special that will not disappoint you in any possible way, shape, or form. Just imagine if Peanuts had never existed, no I can't imagine, and I don't want to imagine. If Peanuts had never existed, then the world would be a lot different, and not in a good way. So if you are looking for a good way to spend thirty minutes, then watch this some time, because you will say that it's another great Peanuts cartoon!

10/10
