A Boy Named Charlie Brown/Snoopy, Come Home/This is America, Charlie Brown
Directed by: Evert Brown, Bill Melendez
(Paramount)
The two first Peanuts theatricals, A Boy Named Charlie Brown and Snoopy, Come Home, are still impressive for their forays into experimental imagery over dialogue exposition. This is America, Charlie Brown is an eight-part educational miniseries on American history. All three are a worthy genesis of Charles Schulz’s social microcosm—its comic influence can be seen in everything from Wes Anderson to South Park.
