Snoopy the Magician, 22 October 2015
Author: hellraiser7 from United States

One of the things I always loved about the Charlie Brown specials were that they were always a surprise, you never really knew what the Pennuts gang were going to get into next. This is another of my favorite specials.

There really isn't a whole lot to say about this one it's basically about Snoopy learning magic, that's pretty much it but that's cool because it finally dove into one of the things I always loved as a kid magic tricks.

In a way the whole special plays out like a skit comedy as most of what happens is pretty random and all revolve around the subject magic. I don't want to give too much away but from what you can see Snoopy is obviously a magician in progress as he seems to be hit or miss at first with most of the magic tricks.

Two of my favorite parts of the special were seeing Snoopy perform a magic trick with Linus's blanket where it's the trick to cut it apart and then make it magically intact again. It is just fraking hilarious as we just see the reactions on Linus's face, he's literally going into a nervous breakdown; for a really smart guy Linus has got problems.

Another of course was Charlie Brown becoming invisible, throughout a whole third of the special it's focused on Charlie Brown despite not seeing him but it's just fun seeing Charlie Brown get into some antics and have fun with his invisibility. He even gets to do something that I've been waiting for years to happen and it's finally paid off.

Charlie and Snoopy are magically powered for fun.
