The OG peanuts movie, Charlie Brown fails a spelling bee and gets made fun of to death. - Maddox121

I before e exept after C best movie ever

Snoopy Come Home Snoopy Come Home Product Image

Very sad even by Peanuts standards, but it's very good, also first animated appearance of Woodstock and Franklin (the second appearance of diversity in Peanuts after the spelling bee of the original movie which features kids that are not white) - Maddox121

Snoopy came back at the end Peppermint Patty saw him post credits

This one was the least watched of the 4 holiday specials due to being several months apart. - Maddox121

Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (and Don't Come Back!) Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (and Don't Come Back!) Product Image

The final of the original quadrilogy, notable for an appearance of a non-trombone and face-shown adult. Features a lot of characters that never ever return. - Maddox121

The drunk scene was really awesome. My favourites are this, followed by Snoopy Come Home and Race For Your Life.

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Product Image

The one that filled the gap between Great Pumpkin and Christmas. Quite notable for a minor controversy involving Franklin (of course, he's the only kid of color that has more than one appearance) being on the opposite side of the table of the rest of the gang, it was first brought up around the 90s during it's VHS release (in private), but the first appearance that I can see being major is 2009 when a YouTube user uploads the clip, it wasn't until 2018 when the media was enrage, and everybody counted it off as bullcrud and attention seeking from dead people (this case, Charles Schulz). - Maddox121

The Contenders

The Peanuts Movie The Peanuts Movie Product Image

Peanuts movie is apporiette to take to school & Step Foward too.

The fifth of the movies. This will probably be the only one of this type due to Disney buying out FOX and Disney having a rocky relationship with WildBrain (formerly DHX) in recent times who owns Peanuts. - Maddox121

Come on, this may or may not be the best movie or special in Peanuts history but it's still a good movie

How is this not #1?

The saddest (and darkest) of the Peanuts movies, LITERALLY DEALING WITH CANCER, it's so sad Linus even gave up his blanket habits for a more serious show. Only one segment, that being the Snoopy comic relief segment, has nothing to do with the main plot. But it's good either way. - Maddox121

This one is 100% serious because it deals with a girl diagnosed with cancer. - JoeBoi
