Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Charlie Brown and the "Peanuts" gang are back in this 30-minute animated TV special. Per the title, the story takes place on New Years' Eve as Marcie and Peppermint Patty prepare to throw a party. Though he's been invited (for a change!), Charlie Brown would rather stay home and complete a book report on War and Peace. But as midnight approaches, our hero shows up at the party after all, dragging the Tolstoy classic behind him. First telecast on January 1, 1986, Happy New Year, Charlie Brown was given two annual network reruns before its absorption into the Disney Channel's Charlie Brown and Snoopy package.
