Did You Know?

Some characters were changed in the transition from the stage. The original musical features only Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Peppermint Patty, Schroeder, and Snoopy. In the animated adaptation, Peppermint Patty, no longer familiar to modern viewers, has been replaced by Sally. In the 1999 Broadway revival of "You're a Good Man," that change was kept (though Marcie, Peppermint Patty, and Woodstock also appear briefly as well, even though they aren't in the original).See more »
Linus van Pelt:[Lucy talks of her dream to become a queen] Lucy, I believe Queen is an inherited title. Yes, I'm quite sure. A person can only become a queen by being born into a royal family of the correct lineage so that she can assume the throne after the death of the reigning monarch. I can't think of any possible way you can become Queen. I'm sorry, Lucy, but it's true.See more »

The Greatest Non-Holiday Peanuts Special of them all, 2 March 2000
Author: GrouchoFan ( from Fargo, North Dakota

Out of all the Peanuts specials that are not Holiday specials, this is my personal favourite. Christmas, Great Pumpkin, and Easter Beagle will always be best, but besides those few, this is my favourite. The only one that rivals it is A Charlie Brown celebration, and that is only for it's sheer insanity. First off, the songs all absolutely rule. The kite flying song and the theme song are both among the greatest songs ever written for TV. But the greatest song from all Peanuts specials, is and will always be Happiness. Every time I hear it, I'm singing it for days. As far as story goes, there really isn't one. It's just really an animated version of highlights from the play. But, my what highlights they are. The baseball scene is one of the best ever. I finally taped the show when it aired on Nick-at-Nite recently, and now I can watch it whenever I want. Just two complaints- the classic theme song is not featured at all, and Snoopy talks (in a rather effeminate voice). But besides that, a classic from start to finish. This started out as a Broadway play. Sadly, I can only imagine Gary Burghoff as Charlie Brown.
