Bon Voyage Charlie Brown (And Don't Come Back)
Charles Schultz' Peanuts gang once more transfer their base of operations from the comic pages to the big screen. Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus and the rest are exchange students this time out, taking in the sights of England and France. Charlie Brown's dog Snoopy finds himself competing at the Wimbledon tennis championship, shortly before everyone moves on to the Continent. In France, the gang is ensconced in a lavish chateau thanks to an unseen benefactor. Producers Lee Mendelson and Bill Melendez do their usual excellent job in bypassing corniness and sentiment, allowing Charlie Brown et. al. to maintain the integrity established years earlier by the prolific Charlie Schultz.
