The ending to "Bon Voyage Charlie Brown" you didn't know about.
I remember seeing this TV special a few years back. What's cool about this one is it's told by Charlie Brown who explains to his sister Sally, what he and his friends did after they left that manor from "Bon Voyage Charlie Brown".
As they travel more around France they end up at a Memorial of WW1. And shows some footage of the French, English and Americans fighting against the Germans back in WW1.
This TV special has educational value and some emotional parts to it.
It's been so long since the last time I've seen it. I hope to see it again someday.
It's more of a sequel than an Average Charlie Brown Cartoon.
