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.

Not your typical Charlie Brown
12 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is NOT, I repeat your typical Peanuts cartoon, there are tons of those and they air on TV every year on Valentine's Day, Halloween, and Christmas. This one is more about Snoopy's desert dwelling brother, Spike and a young woman he befriends (who happens to be a live-action person). This special was made in 1988, around the same time "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" came out, which was cutting edge in new ways of combining 2-d animation and live-action footage. Charlie Brown and Snoopy are the only "regular" Peanuts characters who appear in this special, but only at the beginning and the end, reading the letter Spike had sent them about his experience.
