Who doesn't love Charlie Brown and the whole Peanuts gang? I know my kids were excited to watch Touchdown Charlie Brown. Perfect for this season with the Superbowl just ending and Valentine's around the corner - it is sure to be a hit at your house!
This football-inspired title is comprised of the re-mastered, animated TV special, It’s Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown, in which the Peanuts gang celebrate homecoming, plus three football-themed episodes of The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show.
In It’s Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown, it’s homecoming season at Charlie Brown’s school. The kids celebrate with a parade, a dance and most importantly, football! The big game, which is refereed by Snoopy, draws many spectators. Charlie Brown is the team’s placekicker and Lucy is the placekick setter. The pressure to win is on but can Lucy control her urge to pull the ball away just as Charlie Brown is about to kick it? Or will she risk losing the game for a chance to humiliate him as she’s traditionally done in the past?
Good grief! As if the game wasn’t enough pressure, Linus and Charlie Brown are chosen as escorts for the homecoming queen and her court. Charlie Brown is asked to escort the queen, which happens to be none other than the elusive, little red-haired girl, whom Charlie Brown has been pining for all his life. In spite of his trembling from nervousness, he escorts her to the dance floor and somehow summons up the courage to kiss her on the cheek. This kiss is electrifying. However, from that moment forward, everything becomes a complete blur for Charlie Brown. He wakes the next morning having no memory of anything that happened.
