New World Peanuts



Am I the only one who has never seen the Peanuts version of the Voyage of the Mayflower? It was on last night after the 1973 Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving. Apparently, it was part of a series called This is America that ran between 1988 and 1989. Somehow, I missed the entire series. I don't know if it's the presence of the adults, or the Peanuts Gang in semi-historical clothing, but I found it slightly disconcerting. Not nearly as good as Schoolhouse Rock, but worth a watch.

This is delightful. And thank you for it.

I admit I have seen this before because I own the Peanuts holiday movie collection. The DVDs are some good holiday entertainment. I'm glad you posted about this-a good prompting to start my holiday video watching. Happy Thanksgiving!
