How well do you actually remember 'A Boy Named Charlie Brown'?

The 1969 animated musical was the first feature film based on the legendary 'Peanuts' comic strip created by Charles Schulz.

Good grief, it's hard to beleive the holiday season is upon us. That means a lot of things to a lot of different people, but for us at MeTV, it means the showing of the debut feature film from the ever-famous Peanuts comic strip! 

Sunday, Nov. 20, 2022 we're showing the first film adaptation of the Peanuts comic strip with A Boy Named Charlie Brown at 8P | 7C! Of course you know the ever-popular television specials It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and A Charlie Brown Christmas, but what about the first feature film, A Boy Named Charlie Brown

The film debuted in theaters in 1969 and did better than $12 million at the box office! 

Try not to slip and fall on this quiz! Don't worry, we won't try to pull the football out from underneath you!

  1. At the start of the movie, what is the Peanuts gang looking at?
  2. What is Charlie building?
  3. How does Charlie get his shirt, hat and shoes knocked off?
  4. What game do Charlie and Linus draw in the ground with their sticks?
  5. How much does Lucy van Pelt charge for her "psychiatric" help?
  6. What happens after Lucy pulls the football while Charlie tries to kick it?
  7. What is the first word Charlie has to spell in the spelling bee?
  8. Why is Charlie shedding a tear before getting on the bus for the next round of the spelling bee?
  9. Why is Schroeder hitting his piano?
  10. What was Charlie using Linus' blanket for when Linus takes it away from Charlie?

How well do you actually remember 'A Boy Named Charlie Brown'?

Movie Quiz for 11/18/2022-

This comedy keeps turning on cable any now and then. When faced with the prospect of watching substandard fare, the clear choice is to go to something that is amusing, as well as to entertaining, which is why "xxxx xxx" is a good bet to watch.

This movie evokes those bygone years before automation and the arrival of the computers into one's life. The comedy, adapted from the stage with great care and accomplishes all the requisites for a nice way to spend a couple of hours.

The time is the late 50s in Manhattan. A cost controlling expert is hired to make changes in the way the New York firm can cut costs in all areas of business. Mr. XXXXXXX solution is to start automation in several areas, such as in the payroll department. He faces a formidable task when he takes to task making the research department more efficient, in the days before Google.

Mr. XXXXXX has to deal with the smart Mrs. YYYYYYY , who has more facts and figures at her fingertips than any contraption could find at any given moment. Thus begins a tug of war between the man who is perceived as the "terminator of jobs" and the four women in research. They'll teach him a thing, or two.

The best part of the film is the interplay between the two principals, X and Y Its a tribute to them, as actors, they could work so well together. Also, toward the end of the movie, at the company's Christmas party, we see a playful, and drunk Y singing Cole Porter's "Night and Day" to the beat of the bongo playing of RS. That scene shows a playful Y having a great time in front of the cameras.

This delicious movie will certainly please anyone looking for a good time. Mrs. Y excellent work as the spinsterish B. Mr. X is equally her match as the efficiency expert who is not in touch with reality.

The top 2 cast members Mr X with 2 Academy awards and Mrs. Y has 4 should tell you these are the best of their time in cinema. The supporting cast is most wonderful too.

This movie is all set to play before your eyes once a quizzer gets the movie.

Genre is Comedy--Romance.

6//10, I haven't seen this in years. Maybe I'll watch this year. Good for MeTv for getting classic shows like this too. This is what makes them stand out from the other retro/classic tv channels.

Interesting how they managed to find ten pictures with Snoopy not in any of them, and the three that had something to do with him among the answer choices he only appeared in the *wrong* answers.
LoveMETV22 daDoctah 25 days ago
Perhaps they're saving Snoopy questions for quizzes closer to the " Snoopy, Come Home " special their showing on the 27th?
