This brief series introduced Charlie Brown fans to a variety of vital subjects in American history: the arrival of the pilgrims, the dawn of independence, inventions, the space program, the growth of industry, scientific development and the creativity of our musical heritage. And it's too bad they only made eight parts of the series, plus a general recap, because we could use more shows like these. Charlie and company are just the perfect way to get kids of all ages interested in these topics. The rambunctious wit and charm of the Peanuts cast goes well with the educational stories.
Wish it had been continued as a regular venture, but fine as it stands.
