It's Summer Camp
14 December 2013 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Sixth animated special based on the cartoon strips of Charles M. Schulz deals with Charlie Brown's attempts to write a report on what he did this past summer, and Charlie tells how Lucy signed everyone up for summer camp, where it was the boys against the girls, and the girls won every time, until the last match, which was an arm-wrestling competition between Lucy and the Masked Marvel(Snoopy) that ends quite unexpectedly, but decisively. The problem still remains if poor talentless Charlie Brown can still get a good grade on his report! OK tale is mostly routine until the bright finish with the Masked Marvel. The last one aired during the 1960's.
