The Red Baron's triplane lacks the Iron Cross symbols that the real plane had in both Linus's original model and in Snoopy's fantasy sequences. Linus may have forgotten to include the Iron Cross symbols or had not yet painted them on, while the Red Baron's plane in Snoopy's fantasies was based on the model plane because it hit him while he was trying to climb into the classroom through the window.

You know, Charlie Brown, if you like her so much, why not just walk up to her and introduce yourself?
After the complete fool I made out of myself last night? Yeah, and why don't I just fly to the moon?

I should start off by saying I didn't grow up loving the Charlie Brown films. We were shown the films and shorts every once in awhile before winter or thanksgiving break in school, but I don't have as many films with these characters in my repertoire as I would like. So I may not have liked it or felt as much nostalgia watching The Peanuts Movie as much as some, but man is this a fun little movie.
This film felt just like every single clip or film I have seen with these characters. That's what this film did best, it captured the exact tone and feel of the comic, cartoons, and films. Charlie Brown is always in the wrong place at the wrong time and you get exactly that from this film. The music is there, this time from one of my favorite composers, Christophe Beck. Beck did a great job at setting the mood with the wonderfully simple piano theme.
Comparing this to another animated film this year that was aimed towards kid, The Spongebob Squarepants film, The Peanutes Movie outweighs in it every category. It's a smart, sweet, and relatively simple story line that never tries to outreach it's grasp. Plus, this is the perfect time of year for this movie to come out. I think my only complaint would be that the red baron sequences didn't fit as well into the story as I think the writers were hoping. But the animation is surprisingly fantastic, the characters are exactly who they should be, and the story has a really heartwarming touch to it.
