Quotes

The Bully: [approaches Linus and Janice] Huh? Say, who's the kid with the pink hat? Pretty cute. Does it fly? It needs a propeller. Hey, maybe it'll fly without a propeller!
[he spins off Janice's hat to the snow and laughs to see Janice is bald due to chemotherapy]
The Bully: Hey, look at this! A baldy!
Linus van Pelt: [as Janice cries, furiously] You blockhead! What's the matter with you?
The Bully: What's the matter with me? What's the matter with her? She's bald! She's got no hair!

She's Got Cancer, Charlie Brown!
10 August 2004 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

This one will probably continue to hold the award for Most Annoying Shouting By An Aggrieved Child until the 5th Harry Potter book is filmed. These Charlie Brown cartoons always had an unpolished speaking style for the kids' voices, which in the early days was cute and winning. The stilted shouting was funny when it was Linus ranting about the Great Pumpkin. But they use the exact same phony-sounding style when the issue being discussed is cancer, so the whole thing comes off as hokey. The worst part is when Linus lectures an insensitive kid on his cruel comments about the girl who's lost her hair through chemotherapy. It's loud, toneless, and self-righteous, and just made me want to belt him in the mouth, rather than making me feel sympathetic.
