Another great Classic from Charles Schultz! Solid 7 Stars!
23 November 2017 | by huggibearSee all my reviews

I have never seen this episode 1 of 8 in the Series. Neither have I seen any of the other 7. I'm ready to remember my history surrounding the reason why Thanksgiving is a National Holiday and the traditions we have developed from this holiday. This is a good history lesson and reminder for all, especially children. So far, I have only seen this one about the Mayflower voyage. I'm eager to see the others in this series though. ABC played this bonus cartoon immediately after 'A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving' and that was cool. It definitely sheds light on a memory about an important piece of our American history.
