Storyline

In this anthology, we see a series of stories are directly adopted from the Peanuts comic strip. These include Charlie Brown having strange visions and rashes of baseballs and becoming the admired summer camp president known only as "Sack" for the grocery bag he wears as a result. In another tale, Charlie Brown runs away to escape prosecution for literally biting his hated kite eating tree. Also Lucy determined to rid Linus of his security blanket over his protests.

It's your 25th Special, Charlie Brown
9 December 2010 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

There's no story or narrative linking the various sketches in this Peanuts TV special. We are presented with about seven, short unconnected stories that seem like they are lifted straight from the comic strip.

In the first Ol' Chuck is worried that his head looks like a baseball, while the others feature Peppermint Patty and Marcie becoming caddies, Chuck goes on the run after taking a bite of a tree, and Lucy throws away Linus' precious blanket.

At 50 minutes its twice the length of a typical Peanut's special, but I wish they used this as a chance to give us a good story. As it is, it's fun but nothing stand-out. Nice cameo by Alfred E. Neuman though.
