Sigh.
31 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a lifelong "Peanuts" fan, I'd like to honestly say every "Peanuts" special is an animated classic. Unfortunately, "It Was My Best Birthday Ever, Charlie Brown!" proves I can't. Without being too repetitive of the other reviews, the production quality is poor, the plot is extremely thin, and the music pales in comparison to most other "Peanuts" specials. That it was a straight-to-video release is no surprise. The first third of the program is probably the weakest part, as it does essentially nothing to advance the plot and is actually rather difficult to follow. On a positive note, the voice work is solid, especially the singing, and the gags with Snoopy and Woodstock are amusing. If you're a "Peanuts" completist like me you'll still want to watch it, and fortunately as of this writing you can find "It Was My Best Birthday Ever, Charlie Brown!" on YouTube.
