Top Ten Best Peanuts Movies and Specials

The Top Ten

1 A Charlie Brown Christmas

This is the OG Peanuts animated adaptation. - Maddox121

This movie is the best

2 It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

This one is the funniest, the entire I got a rock bit made me laugh as a kid. - Maddox121

Best of the bunch!

I love this show

I got a rock

3 A Boy Named Charlie Brown

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

4 Snoopy Come Home

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

5 You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown
6 Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown

This movie started the two-movie long trend of the "Charlie Brown goes on adventures without adults" format, also first movie appearance of Peppermint and first speaking role of Franklin. - Maddox121

Thought the bear part was funny

7 Happiness Is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown
8 It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown

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

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

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.

10 A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

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

11 The Peanuts Movie

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?

Ok this should be much higher on the list

12 What a Nightmare, Charlie Brown
13 Why, Charlie Brown, Why ?

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

14 Happy New Year, Charlie Brown!
15 It's Arbor Day, Charlie Brown

Definitely worth it. Baseball scenes were hilarious.

16 It's a Mystery, Charlie Brown
17 Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown

This has to be in the top 10 it is the essence of Charlie Brown.

18 It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown
19 What Have We Learned, Charlie Brown?
20 Charlie Brown's All-Stars
21 It Was My Best Birthday Ever, Charlie Brown
22 Is This Goodbye, Charlie Brown
23 I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown
24 A Charlie Brown Celebration

26 You're In the Super Bowl, Charlie Brown
27 You're a Good Man Charlie Brown
28 It's Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown
