I'm not certain I've seen the Th'giving special (which I see is from '73) I do dearly love the Christmas and Hallowe'en specials.

The plot revolves around Peppermint Patty inviting herself (eventually Marcie and Franklin too) over to Charlie Brown's house for Thanksgiving Dinner, even though he is supposed to be at his grandmothers house.   

Spoiler: PP is disappointed in the Thanksgiving meal since CB can only cook toast. PP ultimately realizes, through Marcie, that she should be thankful for what she has been given and the time spent with her friends.

Not enough Lucy, Sally, Snoopy, or Woodstock, I think, and way too much Peppermint Patty.

:) I always feel badly when poor Charlie Brown is trying to find a nice Christmas tree and comes back with that sad looking branch.

PD

Nothing frustrates me more than Lucy removing the football and CB attempting a kick every single time. The comic strip is charming though and I agree the TV Christmas/Halloween shows were pretty special too!

I know!  Poor CB!  He's always landing flat on his back!  If I'm recalling correctly, at least once, CB asks her to promise not to do that.  She agrees, but claims that can't help herself. lol
