Great cartoon! (And educational, too.)
on April 2, 2004
This Is America, Charlie Brown cartoons were very innovative specials that featured the Peanuts characters in important moments in history, and gave kids (as well as parents) a fun insight on how certain historical characters (and their influences) came to be. This episode is about the how the Constitution was created, as well as how the legislative, executive and judicial branches affected the delegates. The special mainly revolved around Linus and Peppermint Patty, but the other usual characters were there as well (although as usual, Schroeder appeared out of nowhere, was only in one scene, and didn't have any lines).
I knocked off a star because the idea of Charlie Brown inventing all those sports, like basketball and baseball ("I bet hitting a ball with a stick would make a GREAT game!"), was a little too surreal. But it's all right because the special is still great. These This Is America specials rarely come on television any more, so if you want to see them, click the ADD TO CART button.
