I love the animation. They retain most of the elements that make the Peanuts specials look the way they do.
How do Charlie Brown and the Peanuts Gang spend their time between holidays? The Peanuts comic strip debuted 65 years ago today. The special reviewed here today has a connection to that first strip, as you will see below Linus Van Pelt Austin Lux is very attached to his security blanket, never letting it out of his grasp.
His sister Lucy Grace Rolek is fed up with the blanket and tells Linus he needs to give it up. Lucy has some bad news for Linus: Their grandmother is coming to visit and she is determined to rid Linus of his blanket.
He has seven days to break his "addiction" to the blanket. At the same time, Snoopy Andrew Beall is determined to steal the blanket for himself and drags Linus around the neighborhood several times.
Linus gives the blanket to Charlie Brown Trenton Rogers and asks that he keep it, no matter how desperate he becomes. This lasts for several seconds, before Linus takes back the blanket. Within a little while, his "whole nervous system" is shot. She then tells Linus that "no substitutes" are allowed either.
Will Linus give up the blanket?
Will his grandmother force him to get rid of it? The five years between this and the previous special also mark the longest time between specials.
But most of the story and dialogue are taken directly from Peanuts comic strips. This new creative team made a conscious effort to make the characters act and look like they did in the late 50s and early 60s.
They also used the cast from the earlier era as well, so we get to appearances from Patty Ciara BravoShermy Andy Pessoa and Violet Blesst Bowden plus cameos from 3, 4 and 5.
When Linus asks Chuck if he has fears and frustrations, Chuck flashes back to unpleasant moments in his past. How I hate him! So Pastis and Schulz bring lots of nostalgia to this special. Lucy mellowed over time in both the specials and comic strip.
But the Lucy we see in Happiness is her earlier, meaner self. On a lighter note, we get a touching scene where Charlie Brown sits up all night to help Linus deal with the loss of his blanket.Mar 29, · Title: Happiness Is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown (Video ) / Want to share IMDb's rating on your own site?
