Storyline

Signing up late for the Junior Olympics, Charlie Brown becomes a contender in the only available, and most demanding, event, the decathlon. With great difficulty, Charlie Brown, and later Marcie, train for the event. On the days of competition, the pair face the arrogant Freddy Fabulous and Snoopy as well as the "Masked Marvel." During the contest, Charlie Brown proves to be a surprisingly viable competitor. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Charlie Brown: [In bed after working out for the decathlon, to Snoopy] Boy, I'm reeeeally tired. I appreciate you working out with me, Snoopy. You must be exhausted, too.
[He's out as soon as his head hits the pillow. Snoopy, meanwhile, walks out the back door, then skips and dances back to his doghouse]

Rooting for Charlie Brown!
1 July 2015 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

We had a little brown-bag luncheon at work and an employee decided to play this cartoon short for some fun and laughs. Even though there were just six to seven of us adults in the room, it appeared that we all enjoyed the cartoon (I could hear a lot of chuckles) for its innocence, family-friendly theme and message.

Here, Charlie Brown signs up for the decathlon at the School Olympics. After much challenges in his training, Charlie faces arrogant Fred the Fabulous, Snoopy as the "Masked Marvel" and friend Marcie in the competition.

It's not an entirely riveting story with unending adventures and suspense, but it is an innocent and charming cartoon that includes some sports scenes that will have you cheering for Charlie Brown and for some laughable moments from the entire Peanuts gang. The voice acting was good and the animation, while may not be as hi-tech or advanced by today's standards, was simple but refreshing.

It is a nice little movie for everyone to enjoy and reminds us that winning is not much as being first place as working hard and having good sportsmanship.

Grade B
