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

It truly is a shame that we all had to wait what seemed like eternity for this to be finally available on disc. While the picture quality is amazing, the audio quality is hit & miss. There is an ongoing high-pitched buzzing distortion at certain points throughout the feature. I have e-mailed Paramount about the issue, but I was sent a form letter telling me that I would have to wait up to two weeks for a proper response. Another reviewer has noticed the problem & alerted Paramount as well. Hopefully there are others out there that have noticed this & contacted the company as well.

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.

“Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown” FINALLY Makes Its Digital Debut 38 Years after Its Theatrical Release, and It’s Still Not Only the Best Peanuts Movie, but One of the Greatest G-Rated Films of All Time!

1977 made its mark of the psyche of a whole generations of kids. “Star Wars” changed the cinematic landscape forever and, along with “Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” forged the Movie Geek Generation.

It was a great year to be still be young enough to buy a children’s ticket at the theater. Ray Harryhausen released his third and final Arabian Knights adventure, “Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger,” and Peanuts TV and theatrical producer/director, Bill Melendez, released the big screen Peanuts summer camp adventure, “Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown.” This was the same guy who gave us the TV classics “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and dozens of others.

The TV specials, sponsored by Dolly Madison snack cakes, were big deals to us back then. They would pop up during prime time to get us excited about each upcoming holiday and often mark the start of each new school season. Occasionally the Peanuts would hit the big screen for extended, event type adventures and “Race for Your Life Charlie Brown” was the biggest and best of them all.

It was actually the third big screen Peanuts adventure, following “A Boy Named Charlie Brown” (1969) and “Snoopy, Come Home” (1972) and followed by “Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (and Don’t Come Back!!”) (1980), which would be the last Peanuts big screen event picture until “The Peanuts Movie” hits theaters in November 2015.
