Happy New Year, Charlie Brown! was another fine animated "Peanuts" holiday special
9 January 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Well, New Year's Eve is coming up but poor Charlie Brown is stuck with having to read "War and Peace" (which is about a thousand pages) for his school book report. On top of that, Peppermint Patty invites him for her and Marcie's party while Linus tries to avoid Sally and her calling him her "Sweet Baboo". Oh, and there's a certain "Little Red Haired Girl" that Charlie's crazy about...Another funny and insightful "Peanuts" special with a wonderful script by creator Charles Schulz, direction by Sam Jaimes and usual helmer Bill Melendez, and a not bad musical score by Ed Bogas and Desiree Goyette who also wrote a couple of songs as well as sang on one of them. Too bad no one thought to put the late Vince Guaraldi's "Linus and Lucy" in there but otherwise, this was another fine "Peanuts" holiday special.
