Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The title of this animated TV special is redundant: surely, Charlie Brown should know by now that he'll never win. This fact of life is illustrated with choice clips from the Saturday morning cartoon series The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show. Time and again, Charles Schulz's comic-strip creations thwart Charlie Brown's hopes of coming out on top. His principal nemesis is Lucy, she of "I'll hold the football and you kick it" fame. All You Can't Win, Charlie Brown lacks is a sense of coherence-though it does make its point, over and over again.
