Interesting for Schulz fanatics
17 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm probably one of the few who's actually seen this, here goes.

As mentioned before, this is not the 1969 movie, but a 1963 (not 1965 as commonly believed) TV special on Schulz and his characters. It was unable to find a sponsor and shelved. It's not hard to see why. It's actually quite dull except for what I'm about to describe.

Most of the documentary follows a day in the life of Charles M. Schulz. We see his estate, we see him taking his kids to school and drawing his strip, with some commentary on all of the above.

The meat of this documentary is the 3 minutes of animated skits by the Peanuts gang. Done after the early 1960's Ford Commercials and before "A Charlie Brown Christmas, these are amusing vignettes on Charlie Brown's perennial failure, Linus' powers with his blanket, and other strip standbys. Other than that, not much to write home about except for hardcore Schulzologists.
