It's a Cash Grab, Charlie Brown!, 9 August 2006
Author: crappyemailrepository from Bronx, NY

Why? Charles Schultz couldn't have been this hard-up for cash, could he?

Peanuts conventions are thrown to the wind: Adults are shown in plenty, with lots of lines -- no "wah-wah... wah-wah-WAAH-wah" here.

Contrived storyline -- Snoopy is the Pied Piper. Has nothing to do with the Peanuts setting. Granted, this is apparently supposed to be a story Charlie Brown is relating to Sally, but still.

Complete lack of the clever irony that made Peanuts funny. All dialog is forced, and usually a cliché, especially the adults (reminding us why they were "WAH-wah"ed out in the first place).

A Barbershop quintet singing as filler.

Oh. And the dancing mice. Was this an attempt to find the Woodstock Formula? Idunno.

There was just no good reason for this video to be made
