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......

An odd entry in the Peanuts film series
29 April 2001 | by (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

Unlike the rest of the Peanuts specials, this one is mostly a live action film, with animation mostly limited to Spike and some cameo appearances by the regular Peanuts cast. Mostly I see it as father Charles' affectionate gift of a starring film role to his daughter Jill. It was also a great way to showcase the ice rink Charles owned.
