Charlie Brown movies are based on the Peanuts comic strip that was created by Charles M. Schulz. The Peanuts was based around the main character Charlie Brown and his friends: Linus, Lucy, Schroeder, Sally, Peppermint Patty and Snoopy. Linus was Charlie Browns best friend and Lucy was his mean and cynical older sister who constantly made fun of Charlie Brown and Linus. Schroeder and Peppermint Patty were friends of Charlie Brown and Sally was his younger sister. And Snoopy was the lovable pet beagle of Charlie Brown, who was much more than a typical dog.
Charles M. Schulz inspired a lot of people with his Peanuts comic strip and it is still very relevant in the world today. There were many television specials that were based on the storylines of Charlie Brown. One of the first ones ever made was A Charlie Brown Christmas which was followed by A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. Now, everyone can look forward to the new Charlie Brown Easter DVD that is being released this year. Everyone can always count on good old Charlie Brown to get himself into some sticky situations that are guaranteed to entertain.
