The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show

Show Summary

Charlie Brown, his dog Snoopy, and the whole Peanuts gang enter the television world in their very own television series shown weekly, followed by comic strips drawn and written by creator, Charles M. Schulz. With the help of Bill and Lee Melendez, these wonderful comic characters have very different and strange personalities that make each scene very humorous and unique. Focuses on the anxieties and joys of childhood as expressed by an ensemble cast of children who often seem wise beyond their years. Based on the famous comic strip. Character Guide Charlie Brown - Charlie Brown is a boy who has a dull life, and is constantly worrying about everything. He loves playing baseball, but his team never wins a game. There are some strange things happening in his life such as the attitude and actions of his dog, Snoopy and a kite-devouring tree that swallows all of the kites that he tries to fly. He is referred to a "blockhead" or "wishy-washy" and always puts himself down. Whenever he tries to kick a football that Lucy is holding down, she pulls it away, and Charlie goes flying in the air. She also helps Charlie Brown for five cents at her Psychiatric Booth. He has a little sister named Sally. Snoopy - Snoopy is an imaginative little beagle that lives under his owner, Charlie Brown. He creates daydreams while he sleeps on his doghouse. He is determined to finish writing a suspenseful story, while helping his friend, Woodstock and staying away from "the cat next door." For almost everyday, all Snoopy does is eat and sleep. He makes up characters that he pursues himself such as Joe Cool, The World War I Flying Ace, The Flash Beagle, a Vulture, etc. Lucy Van Pelt - A rough girl who is always bossy, crabby, and selfish. She likes bossing her little brother, Linus around, complaining that he always carries his blanket around. She is always angry - arguing and yelling. But her sweet side is shown whenever she is talking to Shroeder, who she likes very much. Schroeder idolizes Beethoven, and his piano. He always stays at his piano, playing music for others to enjoy. Linus Van Pelt - Linus, a intellectual boy who speaks of philosophical revelations and solutions to problems using complex details. He constantly holds a blanket, which he refers to as a "security blanket." This wise boy always stands beside his best friend, Charlie Brown, and is always under the command of his big sister, Lucy. Although he is very intelligent, he still believes that there is the Great Pumpkin, who rises out of the pumpkin patch and gives children gifts. Peppermint Patty - Patty is simply amazing at playing baseball, but is receiving D-minuses in school. Sort of a tomboy, Peppermint constantly sleeps during class. Marcie, who calls Patty, "sir" always follows Patty around, doing whatever Patty says and is always looking out for her "boss."
