Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Politics take precedence among the Peanuts set in this classic animated special from the remarkable imagination of Charles M. Schulz. The race for student body president is heating up, but does Charlie Brown really have a shot at winning the election? Realizing that the odds aren't in his favor after Lucy takes a poll of the entire student body, Charlie makes the decision to back the campaign of his old pal Linus. And why not? Linus is running on a pro-recess, anti-homework platform that gives him a decided edge over his fellow political hopefuls. It would seem that Linus is bound for the to take top office. But while the voters all seem fully prepared to cast their ballots for Linus, a thoughtless mention of that holiday figure said to rise from the pumpkin patch every Halloween and deliver toys to the most "sincere" little girls and boys may be enough prompt even his most ardent supporters to consider withdrawing their support.
