Episode Summary

Charlie Brown's All-Stars
After losing 999 games in a row, Charlie Brown's baseball team threatens to quit and spend the summer like normal kids (swimming, skateboarding, and jumping rope) until he announces that Hennessey's Hardware store will sponsor them, meaning they can get uniforms and play in a real league - but only if he'll take the girls and Snoopy off the team.moreless

    This was the 2nd Peanuts special, to follow up the Emmy winning Charlie Brown Christmas. This is a good example of the early specials, lots of terrific Vince Guaraldi music and Charlie Brown at his wishy washy best. Indeed, this has one of the best scores of all the Peanuts specials. It follows ones of the most popular themes of the strip, Charlie Brown as manager. I always felt this was underrated, perhaps because it came so soon after "A Charlie Brown Christmas" that it was overshadowed by that classic special. But I would rank this maybe 4th of the best specials.moreless
  • A great episode!

    This episode is very interesting. At the beginning, Charie Brown goes to all the trouble with catching the baseball. He travels to many places. But in the end the ball falls and it goes in his glove and falls off. Then everyone called him a block-head! I cracked up at that part! I also thought that being on Charlie Brown's team for the uniforms was funny. It was also funny when Pigpen hit the ball and there was dust everywhere so no one could see. But eventually the team made Charlie Brown a uniform with linus' blanket! The end was great because Charlie Brown was a goat in the baseball field, and a hero in his friendship with the team. A great episode to make this short!moreless
  • The very first Peanuts episode ever.

    This was the start of the Peanuts Cartoon.This was very good and almost better than the comic.Since this was Christmas,Charles made a religous part where Linus explained what Christmas is about.What can't you like about that?And then there was that little tree that Charlie Brown wanted to bring.This show also won an award in 1966.Everyone loves this episode of the Peanuts.This showed that comics are good to become tv shows.
