Did You Know?

With only four (Charlie Brown, Linus, Snoopy, and Woodstock), this Peanuts special features the second least number of major characters. (What a Nightmare, Charlie Brown has the least, with two.)See more »

Teenager:So I'm beautiful. What do you want?
Linus van Pelt:I have this friend who's madly in love you. He saw you at the football game.
Teenager:[smiles] You have? Where is he?

You're a stalker, Charlie Brown, 11 February 2011
Author: Woodyanders ( from The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Charlie Brown enlists Linus' assistance to help him find a pretty little girl he spotted in the crowd in a televised football game. The key problem with this particular Peanuts romp is that it unfortunately lacks the sweet warmth and sharp wit of your standard Peanuts outing. Instead some of the humor comes across as rather mean-spirited (one particular gag involving a homely buck-toothed girl seems downright cruel). Moreover, Charlie's obsession and infatuation with the girl is more creepy and unnerving than funny and appealing. Linus stealing said girl away from Charlie at the end also leaves a really foul aftertaste in one's mouth. Fortunately, the always entertaining comic antics of Snoopy and Woodstock prevent this show from being a total wash-out, with Snoopy facing up to a nasty and fearsome bobcat rating as the definite gut-busting highlight. Moreover, Charlie's chronic shyness makes him fairly likable and one can certainly identify with his awkwardness when it comes to dealing with the ladies. The jaunty score by Ed Bogas and Judy Munsen keeps things bouncing along, the whole program moves at a quick pace, and the lightweight tone ensures that this TV special overall sizes up as a decent enough diversion. Okay, but could have been a lot better.
