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>

Quotes

[Peppermint Patty tries on her skating dress, which turns out to be 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.

it's Peppermint Patty's show
29 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

Peppermint Patty is training for a figure skating competition. She gets Snoopy to be her growling coach. Marcie tries to sew her costume but Snoopy has to do it right. The Peanuts gang gathers to watch Peppermint Patty compete. However the music tape tangles up Snoopy and Woodstock saves the day by whistling the song.

The Charlie Brown wig is hilarious and says so much about Snoopy. Woodstock whistling is a nice moment. Otherwise, there isn't much in this Peanuts special. Most of the main characters get only minor roles. It feels a little light because of that. A Peanuts special should always try to have the whole gang participate. At least it should keep Charlie Brown front and center.
