Editorial Reviews

When Peppermint Patty invites herself and the entire Peanuts gang to Charlie Brown's house for Thanksgiving, the results are all too predictable, but chef Snoopy and pilgrim Woodstock carry the day in this Emmy Award winner

5.0 out of 5 stars The forgotten Peanuts holiday special November 27, 2002
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart warming. Takes you back to being a kid November 19, 1999
By Tina
Format:VHS Tape
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving you've just got to have! November 5, 2004
Format:DVD
This is a classic. Even though Charles Schultz hated it when he first saw it, it has become one of the most beloved Charlie Brown caroons of all time. People get very antsy if their networks don't put it on every year. As usual, Charlie Brown has his trials and tribulations as he tries to prepare a Thanksgiving dinner for kids who have invited themselves to dinner. Even Snoopy and the bird get into the act.

This cartoon is great even for the little ones. It doesn't matter if you are 3 or 93. It's a treat for the whole family.

Enjoy it, Thanksgiving or any time of year!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Overlook This One. December 31, 1998
Format:VHS Tape
The Turkey-Day special is often forgotten about due to the tremendous popularity of the Halloween & Christmas specials but it is just as good and in some ways better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Popcorn and Toast Forever November 17, 2001
Format:DVD
The "Peanuts" TV specials changed the way I celebrate every holiday from Halloween to Arbor Day. I raced home to watch "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" on ABC this year, having not seen it since 1994. I watched it with wide eyes and, the next day, played the tape for my 19 month-old nephew, who learned the word "Snoopy" two weeks ago.
Even to my jaded almost-30 eyes, "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" absolutely rocks. Peanuts TV specials lost a little charm when Vince Guaraldi passed on, but fortunately he scored this one. There's a Woodstock-themed song performed by Jack Sheldon -- not as good as his "Amendment Song" for "The Simpsons" (what is?), but it's hummable.
All the great "Peanuts" moments are here: Lucy's one scene is a football gag; there's a lively remix of Guaraldi's "Linus and Lucy" during the popcorn-and-toast montage; Snoopy climbs out of a mailbox and gets assaulted by a wayard deck chair (it's so *true*!). Linus gives a great speech on the meaning of Chr -- I mean, Thanksgiving. The jive handshake Franklin slips Charlie Brown is adorable in a 1973 kind of way.
My nephew was riveted to the screen for the Snoopy and Woodstock sequence, doubling over in laughter when the ping-pong table folded in half, taking Snoopy with it. These five minutes pleased him so much that I reran that portion of the tape two more times. He kept pointing to the screen and shouting "Doopy!" every fifteen seconds.
Not the best "Peanuts" holiday -- "Christmas" and "Great Pumpkin" are desert-island material -- but if it serves to get my nephew into a lifetime of Charles M Schulz worship, I'll call it the most valuable video in my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fury and Sally Scorned/Pilgrim's Progressive Supper September 4, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
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.
