Storyline

Waking up at 4:30 am each morning, Pepperment Patty is in ardent training for a figure skating competition. Even while she ignores in her usual obtuse manner that her coach, Snoopy, is a dog who gives incomprehensible growls for advice and Marcie cannot sew the skating dress she wants, she is determined to win. However, when disaster looms at the competition, only Woodstock can help. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

"I have weak ankles, sir."

Peppermint Patty is in training for a figure skating competition with Snoopy as her coach. There are a number of obstacles along the way, including a group of hockey bullies and Marcie's poor dressmaking skills. But Patty forges on with help from her coach and a certain little bird. This is a rather different Peanuts special as the focus is entirely on supporting character (but fan favorite) Peppermint Patty. She, Marcie, and Snoopy are the only characters with a lot of screen time. The rest of the gang shows up at the skating competition and get a line or two each. Woodstock is also present in the background throughout and gets one of his best moments from any of the TV specials at the end. The skating sequences are really well done with authentic movements, accomplished with rotoscoping. Charles Schulz's own daughter did some of the skating. It's not a very humorous cartoon but it does have heart and a pleasant tone. Not one of the greats but nice.
