Storyline

She has a winning smile, a sunny outlook that can match the brightest dawn, and a ready supply of dee-doubledog-delicious dog biscuits.  It's the Girl in the Red Truck, Charlie Brown, and even a tough-hide, desert-living loner like Snoopy's brother, Spike, can't resist her! Spike grabs the spotlight (and all the dog biscuits he can hold) in this program blending live action with animation.  He's the good buddy of Jenny, who loves the unspoiled desert vistas as much as Spike does.  Together, they share the road in Jenny's sturdy pickup, quench their sun-baked thirst at a local burger shack and show their stylin' moves at the skating rink.  It's the greatest of all worlds for Spike, but it turns into one of danger and adventure when Spike wanders off alone into the night and mistakenly becomes the prey of a nighttime coyote hunt.  "I am not a coyote!" reads the sign Spike flashes from behind a protective boulder - but the bullets keep flying.  No, he's not a coyote.  He's Jenny's pal......

Quotes

[as Jeff and Molly watch Jenny skate]
Jeff: She loves it here, huh?
Molly: Skating?
Jeff: Living on the desert.
Molly: Yes, she does, probably more than anybody I know.
Jeff: So I suppose you don't think she's wasting her life either, do you?
Molly: I don't know. I can't answer for her. But I'll tell you one thing, though: you don't have to be out in the desert to waste her life. You're going to waste your life standing under the Eiffel Tower.
Jeff: You're probably right.

Good for young kids!
5 July 2000 | by (Perrysburg, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I got to thinking about this movie the other day and how much i loved it when i was little. I just couldn't remember the name though so I searched on here until I found it. I was surprised no one had commented on it. I think this was a good movie for little kids. It features Snoopy's cousin Spike living in the desert. He meets the girl in the Red Truck and they have much fun together. I don't remember much else about it though, but I do know any one who is a fan of the Peanuts will probably enjoy it!
