best for true Peanuts fans

This is benign, and true Peanuts fans will indeed enjoy seeing Snoopy and the kids bring back old quirks and take on some new ones. All others, including young children and casual viewers, won't find this really terrific, especially when compared to other Charlie Brown specials, but they won't find it too bad either.

Considering my username is Snoopylove87, you have to tell I am in love with ALL the Peanuts movies. There are insults, but they aren't that bad. There is 0 chance your kids will be calling each other blockheads. Lucy has a crush on Schroder, but he doesn't have any feelings back, like a classic 1st grade crush. Charlie Brown is a little lonely at times, but he is the underdog of the movies. All of the movies are beautiful and are good movies to bond your family together. Peppermint Patty is a tomboy, the characters aren't anorexic, and there is ethnic diversity within the movies. WATCH THIS!!

Not worth it

A very poor Charlie Brown special that doesn't even have Charlie Brown in it very much. Watch the original Charlie Brown Christmas
