Storyline

I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown! centers on ReRun, the lovable but ever-skeptical younger brother of Linus and Lucy. It's Christmas vacation and, as usual, ReRun's big sister is stressing him out, so he decides to turn to his best friend, Snoopy, for amusement and holiday cheer. However his faithful but unpredictable beagle companion has plans of his own, giving ReRun reason to ask Snoopy to invite his canine brother Spike for a visit. When Spike shows up, it looks like ReRun will have a dog for Christmas after all... but then the real trouble begins. Written by Mykol Gantt

Charles Schultz
6 December 2006 | by vxuobxSee all my reviews

It's obvious Charles Schultz had already passed on when this was made. It is definitely no good ol' Charlie Brown. The character, Rerun, doesn't fit in the Peanuts line up. The regular characters have no weight in the film and seem strange and out of place. I would highly recommend any of the older Peanuts classics, but this shouldn't even exist. The movie doesn't flow well either. It is almost like standup, or a series of newspaper comic strips strung together. They are not even funny. One of the things that bothered me about the Rerun character is simply bad manners. The old Peanuts characters were typically respectful of their homes and parents. This character shows none of that.
