Lucy van Pelt: Oh no, you didn't! I just pulled it away!

Lucy van Pelt: You can't prove it, Charlie Brown. No one will believe you.

Magical moments
26 February 2003 | by drsayazSee all my reviews

I've always liked the Peanuts. The cold reality life is given new life in humorous animations. This is one of the best Charlie Brown shows I've seen. The one where he actually kicks the ball. Enjoyable and fun all the way through. Amazing.
