More fun than 10 "Charley Brown", Great Pumpkins !!!!!!
6 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although its been nearly 29 years from the first time I viewed this on its original TV broadcast. It still rings with humor in my memories. The animation is a bit choppy but the uniqueness of the story line and not the same old, same old; has made me wonder. Why this cartoon never made it to any classic so called status? Let alone sequels. Have found it recently here @ "IMdb" on line. And learned that the cast was as special as the story. But also so surprised that it is not carried at my local library. If you find it. Here, or there. It should be a definite hand me down to be enjoyed by all. There was an all-star cast of voices utilized in the production of this movie; for example Gilda Radner, one of the most talented and epic comedic talents of the 20th century! Again this animated, made for television movie should be viewed by all!!! REA
