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
Author: cairn6 from New England

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

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.
