Movie Reviews

The forgotten Peanuts holiday special
Blake Petit | Ama, Louisiana United States | 11/27/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While people often gush -- and rightly so -- about the Charlie Brown Christmas and Halloween cartoons, I often feel like this is the "lost" Peanuts holiday special that doesn't quite get the attention of its more popular siblings.Charlie Brown, through no fault of his own, gets roped into preparing a Thanksgiving dinner for Peppermint Patty and all his friends. And this from a boy who can barely make cold cereal and toast. Snoopy and Woodstock lend a hand in the kitchen with predictably silly results. While it's not as iconic as some of the other Peanuts specials, it's a good story that really grasps the characters very well. This DVD also features "The Mayflower Voyages," one of several specials that cast the Peanuts characters as participants in American history. It's a good educational tool for the kids, mixing in some of the harsher facts of life at Plymouth Rock with the softer, happier mood of the Peanuts gang. Together, these two cartoons are well worth the DVD."
Fury and Sally Scorned/Pilgrim's Progressive Supper
W. Langan | the end of the world to your town! | 09/05/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you're collecting Charlie Brown videos, you can't go wrong buying this package! It's got 2 of Charles Schulz's best animated specials!It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie brown (1966) was Charles Schulz's 3rd animated special and features many of the most important elements of the Peanuts cartoon strip: Charlie Brown trying to kick the football from Lucy (and you can guess what happens!), Snoopy as the World War I Flying Ace, and of course, Linus' unfleeting faith in the Great Pumpkin. Sally is the only one who is willing to sacrifice tricks or treats and the Halloween Party for the Great Pumpkin's arrival. Well, without giving away too many details, let's just say neither Sally nor her older brother Charlie Brown walk home with any Halloween candy. However, when this special was originally aired, Charles Schulz's office wound up with lots of candy to give to poor old Charlie Brown. A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (1973) won an Emmy. This time, Peppermint Patty invites herself and her friends to Chuck's house for Thanksgiving while Charlie Brown is expected at his grandmother's that same day. With Linus and Snoopy's help, they make an impromptu supper for their last-minute guests (though unconventional, as Peppermint Patty complains: "Where's the pumpkin pie, Chuck?"). Before the day is through, all of them learn a lesson of the true meaning of Thanksgiving."
Heart warming. Takes you back to being a kid
Tina | Paris Island, SC | 11/20/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This video takes me back to being a kid and being able to stay up and watch the specials that came on TV for the holidays. This is just a great simple cartoon for kids and parents alike. You will never be disapointed with any Charlie Brown cartoon. From Lucy's contant quest to never let Charlie Brown never kick the football,to Charlie Browns deep thoughts on life. You will always love this one."
Thanksgiving, the Peanuts Way
Mark Baker | Santa Clarita, CA United States | 11/12/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Charlie Brown and friends are busy getting ready for that forgotten holiday - Thanksgiving. Linus is telling everyone about it, Charlie Brown is wondering why the stores have Christmas decorations up already, and Sally is stressing about having to write a report on "Standish Miles" before she's finished her Halloween candy. But then Peppermint Patty calls and invites herself, Marcy, and Franklin to the Brown house for Thanksgiving dinner. Snoopy pitches in to help, but when the best they can do isn't enough for Peppermint Patty, what will happen next?This is a Peanuts classic. Only Charlie Brown could find himself in this predicament, and it's handled with the usual Peanuts gentle humor.Also included on the DVD is an episode of the TV show "This is America, Charlie Brown." "The Mayflower Voyage" intersperses the Peanuts gang in a retelling of the Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving. It is a good presentation of the history of the Pilgrims, but is more history then entertainment. Still, it does have its moments, like when Lucy wants directions to the complaint box once they've reached America.The DVD offers no extras beyond this additional 25 minutes of Peanuts animation. Still, the picture and sound quality are top notch on both programs.This DVD belongs in any Peanuts fan's library to be enjoyed year after year."
