Storyline

Signing up late for the School Olympics, Charlie Brown becomes a contender in the only available, and most demanding, Olympic event, the decathlon. With great difficulty, Charlie Brown, and later Marcie, train for the event. On the day of competition, the pair face an arrogant opponent and Snoopy as well as the "Masked Marvel." During the contest, Charlie Brown proves to be a surprisingly viable competitor. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

A typically funny and enjoyable Peanuts TV special
19 August 2009 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Peppermint Patty persuades Charlie Brown to participate in the school decathlon. Charlie undergoes a grueling exercise regimen in order get into shape for the big event. He competes against Snoopy as the Masked Marvel and mean, cocky and fearsome jerk Fred Fabulous from a rival school. Meanwhile, Marcie cheers Charlie on and serves as his back up. Once again beloved Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz delivers a bright and witty story with a pleasing blend of true warmth and good humor complete with a right-on central message about how it's more important to do your best and be a good sport than it is to win. The decathlon itself is a delightful set piece: Fred Fabulous makes for a deliciously hateful foil, Snoopy shows off some fancy moves, and Charlie Brown has you completely rooting for him as he pours his heart and soul into each demanding round of the game. Among the nifty highlights are Snoopy wiping out on the pole vault and Marcie giving Charlie Brown a sweet wink at the end of the show. The bouncy score by Ed Bogas and Judy Munsen neatly alternates between the folksy and the funky. The animation might be pretty rough around the edges by today's more sophisticated standards, but it does the trick just the same. Charlie Brown's undying optimistic spirit and fierce determination are an absolute joy to behold. A solid and satisfying little hoot.
