Storyline

With the school election looming, Linus is talked into running for school president. With Lucy and Charlie Brown as his campaign manager and Snoopy and Woodstock assisting, he stands a decent chance of victory. Soon however, he makes unrealistic promises and learns the hard way that preaching about the Great Pumpkin cannot be considered a sound campaign strategy.

There's a reason the theme music mentions the wrong title
28 September 2008 | by del_grande-1See all my reviews

"The song at the title screen, it sang: 'You're elected Charlie Brown!', but they should of sang: 'You're NOT elected Charlie Brown.'"

There's a reason for this; the first time it aired, it was called, "You're Elected, Charlie Brown," and used the theme music with that title. However, sometime after that, presumably somebody noticed that, as Charlie Brown wasn't actually elected, the title made no sense, so the title was changed, and the theme music changed to a different song without lyrics. (It is possible that the on-screen title was changed at the last second, but note that CBS commercials for the show's first airing used the original title.)
