The second offering on this disc is much, much better, as it was produced during the first decade of Peanuts specials. While it's no "Charlie Brown Christmas" or "Great Pumpkin", this 1973 cartoon, "There's No Time For Love, Charlie Brown" is a keeper. It has a lot of the "classic" Peanuts bits like Marcie calling Peppermint Patty "sir" and a Snoopy segment that includes his "Joe Cool" theme song. Like "A Charlie Brown Valentine" the first several minutes of "No Time For Love" is a lot of gags lifted from the comic pages, this time dealing with school. "No Time For Love" was produced shortly before "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" and is of the same quality. I'd give it a strong 4 stars.
Up next is a 1981 effort called "Someday You'll Find Her, Charlie Brown". It's an interesting story but isn't executed very well.Read more ›
"There's no time for love, Charlie Brown" features original Guaraldi music and many brief sketches that make me laugh. I enjoy the grocery store version of "Joe Cool" and the silliness of the fact that the kids are in the supermarket but think it's an art museum. But the opening title sure is retro!
"Someday you'll find her, Charlie Brown" is terrible! I don't think it's even written by Schulz, the music is bad because it isn't by Benoit or Guaraldi, and they show adults! In it Linus meets the girl of Charlie Brown's dreams: compare it to "Happy New Year, Charlie Brown." Linus is a girlthief!
But "A Charlie Brown Valentine" is good.
it's funnier & has a better story line - in my opinion.
Although, no matter which one you prefer,
you can never go wrong with Peanuts.
