Featured Specials:

You’re the Greatest, Charlie Brown – Hard work and team spirit is what Charlie Brown needs to win the decathlon at the school Junior Olympics event.  His competitors are Marcie, defending Decathlon champ Freddie Fabulous and the Masked Marvel (aka, Snoopy).  On the first day, Charlie Brown places third. On day two however, he begins to feel the pressure. He’s faced with having to tackle the high hurdles, pole vault, discus/javelin throw, and other events. Will he emerge victorious and win the Olympics for his school?

She’s a Good Skate, Charlie Brown – Peppermint Patty trains for a figure-skating competition with Snoopy as her coach. Her determination is fierce, even after facing several obstacles, including exhaustion from pre-dawn training sessions to Marci’s failure to create a proper skating outfit, to her soundtrack malfunctioning at the start of her performance.  Will it be disaster on ice or will Peppermint Patty emerge as a champ? 
                 
It’s Magic, Charlie Brown – This special finds Snoopy putting on a show after he checks out a book on magic tricks from the library. With Marcie and Sally as his assistants, he performs many tricks (some that work and some that don’t) before an audience. The grand finale features the biggest trick of all, making Charlie Brown disappear.  To everyone’s amazement, Snoopy makes him invisible but doesn’t know how to bring Charlie Brown back. Will Snoopy find a way to reverse the trick?

Someday You’ll Find Her, Charlie Brown – Charlie Brown is in love – again! He enlists Linus’ help to find a pretty girl he spotted in the crowd at a football game. He is crushed when the game ends because he thinks he’ll never see her again.  

Is this Goodbye, Charlie Brown? – Linus’ father lands a new job which, means the family must relocate.  As Linus and Lucy prepare to depart, the Peanuts gang all bid them farewell. Everyone has to cope with the Van Pelts’ departure – some to a greater degree than others.  Their absence is felt by all. Charlie Brown is miserable without his pal Linus and Sally too misses her “sweet babboo.” Schroeder regrets not saying a proper “good-bye” to Lucy. Peppermint Patty attempts to cheer up Charlie Brown. How will the gang cope with their pals having left the neighborhood?

Life is a Circus, Charlie Brown – This special finds Snoopy joining the circus when he falls for one of its performers, a white poodle named Fifi.  Snoopy soon becomes a star performer, doing tricks on the unicycle, high wire and trapeze, and he’s renamed “Hugo the Great.” In the meantime, Charlie Brown is left distraught by Snoopy’s decision. What he doesn’t know however, is that for Snoopy, show business isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Will Snoopy ever return home or will the lure of stardom and his love for Fifi keep him from Charlie Brown? 

What Have We Learned, Charlie Brown? – This touching special finds the Peanuts gang in Europe as they visit various war memorials. They learn about the First and Second World Wars, and the sacrifices made by soldiers at various historical battles. In France they learn about the D-Day Invasion of World War II. Charlie Brown and his pals also visit Ypres and find out about the various battles fought during World War I. Linus recites the famous war poem “In Flanders Fields.” 

It’s Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown – Originally broadcast in 1984, this special is comprised of several clever parodies inspired by popular early ‘80s dance trends ranging from disco to break dancing as well as a series of top 40 hit songs from the era.  

Snoopy’s Getting Married, Charlie Brown – Is Snoopy really planning on tying the knot? In this special, everyone in the Peanuts gang pitches in, in an effort to make preparations for Snoopy’s big wedding day. When Snoopy meets the girl of his dreams, Genevieve, a beautiful Poodle, they begin courting and soon after, he proposes. The excitement builds as the big day draws near but Snoopy gets increasingly nervous about leaving his bachelorhood behind.  Will wedding bells ring for Snoopy? 

Why, Charlie Brown, Why? – This moving special finds Linus learning how to cope with a very ill classmate, Janice, whom he has grown close to and feels a great deal of affection for. He visits her at the hospital and at school, he defends her from a bully who makes fun of the way she looks. As Janice undergoes treatments to recover her health, Linus questions why she became ill to begin with.

You’re a Good Sport, Charlie Brown - Start your engines! Its Motocross season and competing against the likes of Peppermint Patty and the Masked Marvel – aka a certain daredevil Beagle named Snoopy – can intimidate anyone. But if Charlie Brown – tagged with unlucky number 13 – can keep the pace slow and steady (as well as hold onto his helmet), he might just win the race!

  9. Linus is my favorite Peanuts character. Although he's got the weird thing going on with his blanket, otherwise he seems to have it more together than some of the other characters and is always there for (free) advice.
