Storyline

A motocross, a race of motorbikes through a series of obstacles, provides the occasion for Charlie Brown's latest attempt to win at something. He selects Linus as his pit crew and goes to a store to select a bike, and due to insufficient funds, he must settle for a tiny, run-down putt-putt. The majority of Charlie's opponents are eliminated in the race, and Charlie, wearing a makeshift helmet carved from a pumpkin, finds himself in close competition with his friend, tomboy Peppermint Patty, and the Masked Marvel (a.k.a. Snoopy, Charlie's dog). Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Quotes

Charlie Brown: [Charlie Brown has just won the motocross, in defiance of all expectations - including his own. However, instead of the Grand Prize of 5 free Superbowl tickets, CB is awarded... ] Five free *haircuts?* But my dad is a barber. And besides, I don't have much hair to cut!
[Talk about a white elephant! Later, on the way home... ]
Linus van Pelt: Don't take it too hard, Charlie Brown. Winning the big prize isn't what really counts. What does count is that you did your best. And by doing your best, you beat them all. ...

Whoop-Dee-Do!
2 March 2015 | by xyzkozakSee all my reviews

When it comes to being an all-round sport - This sweet, animated short (25 minutes) from 1975, has our young, pumpkin-headed protagonist, Charlie Brown, going in for such all-American, pastime activities as tennis, baseball, football, and, yes, even dirt-biking.

Of course, being good, ol' Charlie Brown (the ultimate blockhead) failure just seems to be his destiny in any sports arena. But whatever he tackles, you can always be sure that Charlie Brown can be counted on to plunge into any given activity with the winning spirit of a real loser.

This particular short was an Emmy Award winner. Its creator, Charles M. Shulz, is considered to be one of the most influential cartoonist of all time.

Sad to say - On Feb. 12. 2000, Charles M. Shulz, 77 at the time, died of cancer.
