Less musical than the non "musical" Snoopy cartoons
on 4 January 2006
This particular Peanuts movie is designed as a musical, with rather stilted lead-ins to the songs. The songs are quite jolly, but the voices, particularly of Snoopy himself, seemed to clash somehow with my idea of the characters, and were frankly grating after a while. A very *short* while...
Happy kiddies that like to sing along with cartoons would probably like this a lot, but anyone over the age of about five might have a problem with it, especially if they were hankering for a more typical dose of animated Peanuts. For really good music (that wonderful thumpin' boogie piano which I always associate with Peanuts cartoons) and a somehow more "realistic" appearance, don't ask me how, I think the non "musical" movies are better.
