Trivia

This special is one of many that Violet and Patty are reduced to silent cameos. These two characters (among others like Shermy, Pig Pen, and Frieda) were prominent in the earlier specials, such as It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966) and A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965), but were phased out with the introduction of Peppermint Patty and Marcie.

Goofs

At the beginning of "Slow, Slow, Quick-Quick", Peppermint Patty invites Charlie Brown to dance by knocking his "War and Peace" book down. At the end of the number, the book has moved to the center of the room, where Charlie Brown trips over it. See more »

All time great line
17 January 2006 | by conace21See all my reviews

This has one of my all-time favorite lines. Sally wonders to Charlie Brown, when will her Sweet Babboo invite her to the party? Linus responds from outside, "I AM NOT YOUR SWEET BABBOO! AND I WOULDN'T INVITE YOU TO A GARAGE SALE!"

I think this also marks the only appearance ever of the Little Red Haired Girl, whom we not only see, but also find out that her name is Heather.

Poor Charlie Brown... trying to learn to dance, read War and Peace, make an appearance at at New Year's Party, and still deal with his crazy dog!
