On May 7th 1980, "The Price is Right" taped a segment featuring a showcase saluting "Bon Voyage Charlie Brown" to be broadcast while the movie was still in theaters later that month. After showing a short clip from the movie (The scene on the plane with Snoopy eating and listening to headphones while hiding Woodstock in the ashtray every time the stewardess walks by) the first item offered is a three piece set of American Tourister luggage. Following this offered is a week long trip to London. Then, after mentioning that Snoopy visits Wimbledon in the movie, Johnny Olson offers a set of two tennis rackets a supply of tennis balls and tennis outfits. Then, mentioning that the Peanuts gang goes to the last leg of their trip in Paris, a week long Paris trip for two is offered. Following that Olsen notes that in Paris the gang rent a car which Snoopy drives - 'being the only one qualified to drive he takes them on the ride of their lives...and you'll have the ride of YOUR life in this new car from France!' - a 1980 LeCar. To top off the showcase a pass for the contestant and 24 of his/her friends to see a screening of the movie on the Paramount lot was offered. The contestant bid $8600, the actual retail price was $10,907 and he won when the other contestant overbid. See more »
In London there is a "Travel Center", spelled in the American way, rather than "Centre". See more »

Charlie Brown, he was born to lose. This is the best peanuts gang movie. I loved it as a kid and I love it now. Am I the only one who notices that Snoopy flicks people off a lot in this. And why is the dog driving anyways?
