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.

Love the "Peanuts" Series But This One Stinks!
13 April 2013 | by (New England) – See all my reviews

With so many specials, films, and even a regular Saturday morning series, one can expect even the "Peanuts" series to mis-step on occasion. "What a Nightmare Charlie Brown" mis-steps...in a really big way. With a storyline based on Jack London's "Call of the Wild" involving Snoopy dreaming that he's been pressed into service as a sled dog by an unseen musher, what may work for a big solid dog named Buck, just does not work with an adored for his antics dog named Snoopy. Too mean spirited, too angry, and too far removed from the premise of the series...this one missed badly. The one saving grace is Snoopy's determination to make the best out of what he's been dealt, but even that is ruined by the dream sequence's brutal ending. 20 minutes of sheer punishment on a character known and loved for being the central comedic figure of the series is just wrong. Pass on this.
