This is the 50th Anniversary of the first animated feature film based on Charles M. Schulz's beloved and ever-popular Peanuts® comic strip. A Boy Named Charlie Brown has our pint-sized hero step up to the challenge, face his fears and show the world what he is truly made of. When Charlie Brown enters the school spelling bee, the doubtful and openly-honest Lucy predicts his abject humiliation. But with the help of his best friend Linus and faithful dog Snoopy, Charlie Brown sets out to surprise his detractors in order to attend the national spelling bee in New York City.
Nominated for an Oscar® in 1971 for Best Original Music/Song Score by Vince Guaraldi, A Boy Named Charlie Brown projects the innocence of Schulz's charming characters with glee and takes them on a most spectacular adventure.
