"I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown!" centers on Rerun, Linus and Lucy's lovable but ever-skeptical younger brother. It's Christmas vacation, and as usual, Rerun's big sister is stressing him out, so he decides to turn to his best friend, Snoopy, for amusement and holiday cheer. However his faithful but unpredictable beagle companion has plans of his own, giving Rerun reason to ask Snoopy to invite his canine brother Spike for a visit. When Spike shows up, it looks like Rerun will have a dog for Christmas after all - but then the real trouble begins.Written by
Charles Schulz is terribly missed by all of us Peanuts fans. This is an excellent posthumous work. Main theme is Rerun's search for a dog for Christmas, but we get to see each of the main Peanuts characters doing their thing in a Christmas setting. Not all the Charlie Brown specials have been outstanding through the years, but this one can be put right up there with the best. Kudos. 9/10
