You're in Love, Charlie Brown
Any faithful follower of Charles Schulz' Peanuts comic strip can tell you who the object of Charlie Brown's affections is. It's the little red-haired girl, much discussed, never seen. No matter how often he steels up his courage to speak to the girl, Charlie Brown is forever stymied by his bashfulness and lack of self-esteem. Coming to his rescue-or at least trying to--is hoydenish Peppermint Patty, who mistakenly assumes that Charlie Brown's amour is the dreaded fussbudget Lucy. On the last day of school, Charlie Brown despairs over the prospect of never being able to express his affections....and then the miracle happens. Produced by Mendelson-Melendez studios, the half-hour animated TV special You're In Love, Charlie Brown debuted June 12, 1967. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
It's Halloween in Peanuts land. Charlie Brown is thrilled that at last he's been invited to a costume party. Snoopy's costume choice consists of the goggles and scarf of a World War I flying ace, who is ever in search of the elusive Red Baron. And Linus makes preparations for the arrival of The Great Pumpkin, whom he believes will rise from the pumpkin patch and deliver presents to all the good little boys and girls. At episode's end, Charlie Brown finds himself with a trick-or-treat bag full of rocks; Snoopy once more fails to bring the Red Baron to heel; and Linus spends the entire night in the pumpkin patch, waiting in vain for the arrival of the Great Pumpkin ("But just wait till next year!") The second of Lee Mendelson and Bill Melendez' animated Peanuts specials, the 30-minute It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown was first telecast October 27, 1966. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Charlie Brown's All-Stars
Baseball team manager Charlie Brown can't win a game to save his life, but when the season rolls around, he tries once more to whip his ragtag "Peanuts" ballplayers into shape. After suffering their 999th consecutive loss, Charlie Brown is about to throw in the towel. He is encouraged to have another go at it when a local business offers to sponsor the team and provide new uniforms. But what can you do with a team whose best player is Snoopy the beagle? The animated, half-hour Charlie Brown's All-Stars was originally telecast June 6, 1966. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

It Was a Short Summer, Charlie Brown
After a short prologue during which Charlie Brown convinces sister Sally to get ready for the last day of school, It Was a Short Summer, Charlie Brown moves to the end of that day, as the children race gleefully away from books and homework and begin planning how they will spend their precious free time. Linus intends to read comic books and watch TV, Charlie Brown is going to develop his pitching arm, and Schroeder will work on his piano technique and perhaps write a concerto. Then Lucy appears and ruins their plans by announcing that she has signed them up, one and all, for summer camp. The boys are distressed -- Linus worries about dreaded queen snakes and the possibility of his parents moving while he's gone and not telling him. Snoopy seems to be the only one pleased about the possibility. Things get off to a bad start at camp when Charlie tries to enliven the boys by getting them involved in a swimming race against the girls -- and the girls soundly thrash them. This sets a pattern as the girls subsequently defeat the boys in everything else, from softball to a canoe race. Eventually, there's only one chance the boys have to redeem themselves -- by pitting their champion wrist wrestler, the Masked Marvel (Snoopy), against the mighty Lucy. ~ Craig Butler, Rovi

He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown!
Charlie Brown, the round-headed worry wart created for the Peanuts comic strip by Charles M. Schultz, has a dilemma on his hands. His usually well-behaved (and hyperintelligent) beagle Snoopy has been acting up as of late, and Charlie Brown's friends aren't too happy about it. Reluctantly, C.B. sends Snoopy to an obedience class at the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm. The dauntless dog graduates at the head of his class, and all is well, at least until the next Peanuts TV special. The 30-minute He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown was first telecast over the CBS network on February 14, 1968. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

A Charlie Brown Christmas
As incredible as it seems, CBS head man James Aubrey originally vetoed his network's presentation of the animated A Charlie Brown Christmas on the grounds that Charles M. Schultz's round-headed protagonist was a "loser" who wouldn't attract an audience! The story proposes that Charlie Brown is convinced that the true meaning of Christmas has been forgotten by his Peanuts friends, not to mention the rest of the world. "Psychiatrist" Lucy advises Charlie Brown to get into the holiday spirit by directing the kids' upcoming Christmas play. Despite his utter lack of control over his cast, Charlie Brown takes his job seriously, even setting out to find a genuine Christmas tree to decorate the set instead of the usual aluminum job. But Charlie Brown's tree is a scrawny, pathetic thing, and all seems lost. That is, until the rest of the Peanuts gang decide to pitch in and decorate the woebegone tree. An instant hit when first telecast December 9, 1965, A Charlie Brown Christmas has been rebroadcast virtually every year since. It was produced by Lee Mendelson and Bill Melendez, the latter providing the squeals and growls of Charlie Brown's hyper-intelligent dog, Snoopy. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
