Storyline

Charlie Brown and the Peanuts sing out as they perform excerpts from the classic musical. Charlie Brown has one of his usual bad days of loneliness and failure whether it be in the schoolyard, at the baseball diamond or at home. Meanwhile, Linus ponders his dependence on his security blanket, Linus bullies and pesters the boys, Sally Brown goes through life with her scatterbrain philosophies and Snoopy indulges in his appetites and fantasies. However, there is music to be had to see them through, until they all realize what truly makes them happy. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Quotes

Linus van Pelt: [Lucy talks of her dream to become a queen] Lucy, I believe Queen is an inherited title. Yes, I'm quite sure. A person can only become a queen by being born into a royal family of the correct lineage so that she can assume the throne after the death of the reigning monarch. I can't think of any possible way you can become Queen. I'm sorry, Lucy, but it's true.

Faithful Animated Adaption of the Stage Musical
7 November 2002 | by StreepFan126See all my reviews

If you have ever seen the stage musical, then you will love this special. Even if you haven't seen it, then you should like this. The songs "You're A Good Man Charlie Brown" and "Happiness" are my personal favorites. The basic plot: a typical day in the life of Charlie Brown.
