Quotes

Charlie Brown: Are you ready for the party tonight, Sally?
Sally Brown: I remember the last time I went to a party. Linus called up and asked me if I would like to go to a party. And I said yes. Then when we got there, Linus asked me if I would like to dance. And I said yes. Then after we danced, Linus said, "Would you like a glass of punch?" And I said "Yes. That would be very nice. I would like to have a glass of punch."
Charlie Brown: I don't believe that ever happened!
Sally Brown: Well, it should have!

Not as bad as one would think
6 June 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was 13 when this Peanuts special came on, and for me, I was into the breakdancing era, liked all the music from the 80's and always enjoyed musicals.

So this special when I first watched became an instant classic to me, the song Flashbeagle was a well written dance hit, it didn't sound like anything from the radio at the time and could've climbed the charts if released.

Now this is 2002 and having bought this special I can see why it was poorly reviewed and never a big hit for long time Peanuts fans. The story had no plot, just four decent songs and one party, and a small show n tell scene. So although it brings me back memories and I will always enjoy the film, it doesn't rank as one of the greatest. Charles Schulz didn't have much to do with the writing and that's why this failed. Overall: 9 out of 10 just because of childhood memories
