[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.

"I have weak ankles, sir.", 30 December 2014
Author: utgard14 from USA

Peppermint Patty is in training for a figure skating competition with Snoopy as her coach. There are a number of obstacles along the way, including a group of hockey bullies and Marcie's poor dressmaking skills. But Patty forges on with help from her coach and a certain little bird. This is a rather different Peanuts special as the focus is entirely on supporting character (but fan favorite) Peppermint Patty. She, Marcie, and Snoopy are the only characters with a lot of screen time. The rest of the gang shows up at the skating competition and get a line or two each. Woodstock is also present in the background throughout and gets one of his best moments from any of the TV specials at the end. The skating sequences are really well done with authentic movements, accomplished with rotoscoping. Charles Schulz's own daughter did some of the skating. It's not a very humorous cartoon but it does have heart and a pleasant tone. Not one of the greats but nice.
