    A Charlie Brown thanksgiving is just as good as "A charlie Brown Christmas!" It's like friends coming over for dinner. Instead of turkey, it popcorn, Toast and prezels. I also like the music score which is the best thing about this special. I love Snoopy and Woodstock all dress-up in Pilgrim outfits. Peppermit Patty complain about the food. She wanted turkey and got toast. I love this special. I saw it in 1973 at a time where animation cartoon are doing time in Saturday morning and is badly made, this special rises above that. It's been a thanksgiving day tradition ever since.moreless
  • To me, every single episode of Charlie Brown is a classic. Well, it's because the show itself is a classic of all times....

    The episode Charlie Brown Thanksgiving almost made me cry. The kids really touched my heart. The strategies that the creater used were so implicit. After all, the characters are children, who give the connotation of innocence, naiveness, and immaturity. However, the message was so strong that I was completely blown the way. The part when Peppermint Petty complained about the meal is definitely something I see so frequently in present-day kids and youths. Nowadays, fewer and fewer people truly care about the spirit of a holiday. Marcy's lines were the greatest of all. She was right - Thanksgiviing is definitely more about just eating. We should all be thankful for being together. In Linus' prayer, he mentioned that they should be thankful for the justice and freedom that older people fought to bring upon their generation. Gee, I was totally moved. This episode made me start look forward to Thanksgiving next year already! I am indeed going to be thankful for what these kids have taught me.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Sally: I haven't finished eating all of my Halloween candy!

      This may seem confusing because some might say Sally didn't get candy since she waited with Linus for the Great Pumpkin. However, it could have been after another Halloween adventure with Sally that we never get to see, or maybe somebody shared candy with her and we never saw that either.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Marcie: Isn't there an old song that goes, "Over the hills and through the woods to Grandmother's house we go"?
      Peppermint Patty: Sure, only this is the way it goes. (singing) Over the river and through the woods
      All (singing): To Grandmother's house we go. The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh through the white and drifted snow. Over the river and through the woods, oh, how the wind does blow! It stings the toes and bites the nose as over the ground we go.
      Charlie Brown: Well, there's only one thing wrong with that.
      Linus: What's that, Charlie Brown?
      Charlie Brown: My grandmother lives in a condominium.

    • Sally: I went down to buy a turkey tree. And all they have are things for Christmas!
      Charlie Brown: For Christmas? Already?!
