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 <>

[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.

Includes my favorite moment in all the "Peanuts" specials
28 September 2005 | by (Renton, WA) – See all my reviews

"She's A Good Skate, Charlie Brown" is not as well-known as, say, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." But this "Peanuts" special includes a special moment that I will always remember.

In this special, Peppermint Patty is training for a local figure skating competition. She spends hours at a frozen winter pond, practicing her skating routines, with Snoopy, her "skating coach," barking and snarling orders. Snoopy's little bird friend, Woodstock, watches from the side of the pond, caught up in the beauty of Patty's skating.

On the night of the competition, Patty skates out on the ice at the local ice rink. But as she is about to begin her routine, the tape containing her music breaks. Just as Patty is about to be disqualified, Woodstock saves the day. He steps to the microphone in the announcer's booth, and whistles a beautiful rendition of Puccini's "O Mio Babbino Caro." (A professional bird whistler, Jason Serinus, was used for this.) Patty does her routine, and wins the competition.

When Woodstock whistles Patty's music, it is a poignant and deeply moving moment. You get the idea that Woodstock is a little guy with hidden reserves of spirit and a tremendous heart.
