Bad
2 January 2004 | by (Baltimore, MD) – See all my reviews

I agree with the other reviewers. This was an extremely bad Peanuts special.

The first seven minutes was taken up entirely with an entirely wordless montage of Linus roller blading, and then Linus at a party. We then see Sally and Charlie Brown have a brief discussion and then another few wordless minutes of Linus skating and exploring a garden. By now about half the special is over.

It is very boring, there are almost no jokes, and the characterization is not well done.

Stick with the specials done up until the early 80s.
