You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown (TV special)

"You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" is one of many prime-time animated TV specials based on characters from the Charles M. Schulz comic strip "Peanuts". It was an adaptation of the musical "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown", and originally aired on the CBS network on November 6, 1985.


Charlie Brown's friends each describes him. Charlie Brown is happy as usual and then his friends say that "You're a good man, Charlie Brown". In an appearance with Schroeder, he plays Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata and Lucy sings along. She tries to talk to him that they should get married.Schroeder ignores her, then Lucy says "My Aunt Marian was right, never try to discuss marriage with a musician." Charlie Brown has never been able to keep a kite in the air and he hopes that the day it would happen would be today, but he had once again failed. Sally was writing a letter to Ann Flanders about the valentines she gets. Charlie Brown gives Lucy a valentine and screws up and says "This is for you Lucy, Merry Christmas." Charlie Brown sees Marcie and thinks that she is going to give him a valentine but she doesn't. Lucy comes up to Schroeder again and talks about saucepans, and, again, Schroeder can't stand it. Snoopy imagines that he is a wild animal. Charlie Brown, Schroeder, Linus, and Lucy work on their book reports on Peter Rabbit (Book Report). Lucy teaches Linus about nature in her own way while Charlie Brown tries to correct her.

"You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" is an off-Broadway musical, originally premiering in 1967. 18 years later, Charles Schulz opted to finally turn the musical into an animated special. Critics have often noted that this confirmed Schulz had been running low on ideas for television specials, having utilized many comics strips for "The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show".
