Charlie Brown Movie featuring Linus is a real "SMASH" (literally)

After watching this 45 minute feature, I must say that I was more than disappointed. To sum it up, Lucy tries to convince Linus to give up his blanket before his grandma gets back, and she spends the entire movie bullying Linus and being rude to her crush, Schroeder. Characters lie and deceive each other, call each other names, and constantly smack each other. The movie is so over-the-top repetitive, and the way the characters talk and behave in this movie is awful. If CSM had a 0 star, that's what this would get. 0/5.
