I think this is the best of the Charlie Brown movies. It focuses on the whole gang, not just Charlie Brown and Snoopy. Lucy leaves most of the bossing around to Peppermint Patty this time around, Marcie instigates votes to make desicions (and the boys lose their cabin headquarters, consequentially!). When Peppermint Patty complains that breakfast isn't traditional campout style, Charlie Brown silences her- "Where's the flapjacks, Chuck?" "Listen, if you don't like it, don't eat!". Schroeder insists on taking his piano onto the rapids, although Linus didn't think there'd be enough room- "Well then, if there's not enough room for my piano, maybe there isn't enough room for your blanket either!" (Linus has a change of heart after that argument!). Snoopy acts as crazy as usual, kissing all the girls goodnight, and Woodstock uses Snoopy as a mountain to ski on when it snows (in summer! )! Then there's the arrogant, nasty opponents chanting "We're #1!" (give them credit, when it comes to cheating, they are indeed #1!).

Perhaps the nicest thing about this film is that Charlie Brown is finally allowed to have some victories, and isn't ragged on so much (Peppermint Patty excepted); the first two cinematic features (A Boy Named Charlie Brown, Snoopy Come Home) are SO sad and bittersweet they don't stand up to a lot of repeated viewings (unless you like feeling sad a lot). Here, it's all about fun, friends and camaraderie. The gang winds up at camp and faces off against a bunch of young toughs in a rafting race--of course, those bad kids cheat any chance they get, but the Peanuts gang comes through--with Charlie Brown as leader (thank you, Charles Schulz!)! Lots of good slapstick stuff for the kiddies--Woodstock climbs a snow-covered Snoopy and tries to turn him into a ski resort, runaway rafts, blasting accidents(!), Snoopy & Woodstock rolling around in a tire...and quieter moments that are really quite sweet, and show the author's pedigree--what other kid movie would have the kids holed up in a cabin, where they find an old victrola and waltz to "Charmaine?" I rather like the film music as well--would I watch this had I not a 4-year-old? Well, not as much, anyway, but this is really pretty good as kids' features go.

I remember this from being a kid. I loved it because it was so funny. Peanut specials were good clean fun even my mom could enjoy. Dad would've too except he was never aware there was more than the Xmas special.
Why are they reissuing the same ones over and over? I love the easter beacle and great pumpkin but how about this one on DVD, Bon Voyage Charlie brown She's a good skate? Things like that? They're crowd pleasers good fun the whole family can watch. I miss those from my childhood and bet plenty others do too. So how about putting those on DVD? With captioning please.

What can I say that the many 4-star and up reviews haven't already? Nothing, but I will repeat some in saying that this is my FAVORITE Peanuts movie ever by a wide margin, the whole gang is in it, the story line is fantastic (cute, funny, sarcastic, wholy in the spirit of Peanuts, but taken to a new level), and again, WHY isn't this on DVD yet??? I have wonderful fond memories of watching this as a child and when my child was younger. I'd watch this movie every day, it's that good. I've been holding on to my old VHS of this movie, looking longing at it for years, wishing I had a working VHS player or a DVD copy of it. I mean, sheesh, at this point I would settle some some dude in his basement converting this from VHS to DVD! Please help! LOL

I can remember seeing this movie back in the Seventies, and enjoying the Peanuts gang in an outdoor setting. I'd say it's probably the last good Peanuts movie that was created - the music is great and represents the time period well. Also notable is that Charlie Brown finally gets to display his skills as a leader and organizer, while Peppermint Patty plays the "heavy" of the group. My kids, who are enjoying a bit of a Peanuts renaissance in our home, really dig this film.

I'm giving this DVD a 1-star review for one simple reason: the English language audio track is almost unlistenable, and I cannot recommend buying this version of "Race For Your Life, Charlie Brown" until Paramount Home Entertainment fixes the issues with it.

The music / ambient sounds / snoopy+woodstock "dialogue" on the English audio track all sound excellent. But the second one of the Peanuts gang starts talking is when the trouble begins.

There is a bunch of high frequency distortion on the English language dialogue tracks that is painful to listen to. Any time one of the kids starts talking, you can hear it "shadowing" their dialogue, and it sounds like artifacts from poor noise reduction techniques being employed -- the artifacts sound similar to when you take a sample that had a very low sample rate/bitrate and upsample it to 44.1 or higher -- you get sort of a 'twinkling' effect. The engineer that did the work on the dialogue tracks probably were probably old enough that he/she couldn't hear frequencies above 12-14kHz, which is where all the distortion sounds like it resides, and just simply didn't notice it when they ran the noise reduction to get rid of tape hiss from the dialogue track.

This audio distortion is not present on the French and Spanish language audio tracks, just the English language version. The French and Spanish audio sounds crystal clear with no nasty distortion or artifacts.

I recommend that Paramount Home Entertainment fixes this. Pronto. Especially if a Blu-Ray version of "Race For Your Life, Charlie Brown" is planned or in the works. It was a great disappointment to me that the audio is horrible, since i've been patiently waiting for YEARS for this DVD release and the bad audio problems make it unwatchable.
