Number of Times Seen – 1 (9 Dec 2015)
Brief Synopsis – Both Chatlie Brown and Snoopy must find the courage to overcome their biggest fears; the Little Red Haired girl and The Red Baron
My Take on it – As a child of the late 70’s and the 80’s, I was exposed over and over to the stories of Charlie Brown and friends both in comic and tv forms.
Obviously, my level of understanding back them was quite different than now but I still managed to enjoy Charles Schultz’s tales of middle American innocent youth.
This movie brought back all of those memories because it doesn’t try to change the story or modernize things and it keeps things as innocent and pure as it always was.
The story is timeless and I loved how the look and feel of it still looks smooth despite the tranfer to cgi animation.
I liked the way that it told two parallel tales and flawlessly moved back and forth between them.
Bottom Line – Really liked how it epitomizes the basic Peanuts story without trying to update it for the modern world. This is a timeless classic that still works after so many years. Animation works very smoothly and still gives us the proper look and feel of the comic strip of years gone by. Recommended!
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – After Charlie Brown becomes popular, the kids struggle over who gets his attention. Shermy (who has not appeared in the film to this point) grabs his arm and says, “I saw him first!” In the very first Peanuts strip printed, Charlie Brown walks by and Shermy is indeed the first character to ever see him.

Rating – Globe Worthy
