Movie Info

This feature-length animated cartoon was based on the "Peanuts" characters created by comic-strip artist Charles M. Schultz. The gang is shipped off to summer camp, where Charlie Brown gets a "Go away and leave me alone" bunkmate, and where CB's beagle Snoopy ends up winning most of the athletic trophies. The Snoop also has a running feud with a mean-spirited pussycat. Meanwhile, budding feminist Lucy organizes an anti-boy campaign amongst the girl campers. The bulk of the action transpires when the gang builds a raft to enter a dangerous shoot-the-rapids race, only to be outclassed by the professionally built vessel picked up by their competitors. Happily, pluck and luck wins out over arrogance and mean-spiritedness.more

The animation is no better than competent, but the film has a nice bluegrass-style musical score by Ed Bogas and should be fine for the kids and "Peanuts" fans.

Released in the summer of 1977,the third installment or sequel featuring Charles Schultz' Peanuts characters in another theatrical feature. This time around Charlie Brown and the gang(along with Peppermint Patty)are at summer camp in which they enter a river race where they go up against a vicious group of kids who cheat there way to the topand will stop at nothing to win the championship trophy at all costs. Leave it up to Charlie Brown's resourceful Beagle Snoopy and his companion Woodstock to save the day and win the prize. Valuable lessons are install here with a full blend of comedy and adventure to boot.

Decent summer camp movie with the animated Peanuts characters. They don't get too preachy, and make for a fun flick. I liked the theme song "Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown". I wish I had seen this on the big screen in 1977, but I was too busy watching some other movie...
