Storyline

Waking up at 4:30 am each morning, Pepperment Patty is in ardent training for a figure skating competition. Even while she ignores in her usual obtuse manner that her coach, Snoopy, is a dog who gives incomprehensible growls for advice and Marcie cannot sew the skating dress she wants, she is determined to win. However, when disaster looms at the competition, only Woodstock can help. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Trivia

This special was based on a series of strips from 1974, which was one of the longest series in "Peanuts." The strip had some other subplots that were omitted in the special, and some changes that were made to the story. The main differences:
  • In the strip, after the fiasco with Patty's skating dress, Marcie's mother makes the alterations to the dress to perfect it. In the special, it was Snoopy who does this onscreen.


  • After Patty gets her dress, she wants to do something with her self-described "mousy-blah" hair, so she decides to go to Charlie Brown's dad's barber shop, but Charlie forgot to tell his dad that Patty was a girl, so he gives her a boy's haircut, much to her despair. To cover this up, Patty wears a huge afro wig. In the special, the haircut scene was written out, so the wig was a gift to Patty from Snoopy to go with the skating dress; she disliked it, so she threw it on Snoopy's head.


  • In the strip, Patty makes it to the competition, only to find out that it's for roller skating, not ice skating, but she realizes this too late when she gets into trouble for inadvertently damaging the rink floor with the blades of her skates. After her return from the competition, she realizes that she still owes Snoopy for her lessons. As she has no money, she puts the wig on Snoopy's head (much like the aforementioned scene in the special).

Quotes

[Peppermint Patty tries on her skating dress, which turns out to be like a long skirt]
Marcie: Maybe it'll look better after I get the sequins sewed on, sir.
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: [furiously] Marcie! This is the worst skating dress I've ever seen! It doesn't even have any sleeves in it! How can I skate in a dress like this? I'll be the laughingstock of the whole competition!
Marcie: If you will recall, sir, I told you I didn't know how to sew.
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: [sadly] I think I'm going to cry. I can feel the tears forming in my stomach.

Soft Side of Peppermint Patty, and Woodstock Too!!
14 April 2013 | by (New England) – See all my reviews

Who would have thought that Tom-boy Peppermint Patty, the girl with the 95 mph fastball could be such a lovely figure skater. And who would have known that silly and fun-loving Snoopy, the dog who pretends he's a WWI fighter pilot could be such a demanding coach. Such is the case in "She's a Good Skate Charlie Brown". This is one of the more memorable Peanuts adventures , not so much for the usual sight-gags, and banter, but for the wonderful climactic scene at the skating competition when Woodstock the bird steps up to the microphone and takes over for a broken cassette player allowing Patty to perform a beautiful and graceful program on the ice. Between the spellbinding and haunting melody and the amazing skating motions wonderfully captured in animation form (you would think you were watching the Olympics)...you know you are seeing something truly special...a highlight of the "Peanuts" series.
