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.
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!
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.
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.
