* ContinuityReboot: For the original run of ''{{Peanuts}}'' animated adaptations. Adapting material from the strip that had previously been incorporated into the franchise's SaturdayMorningCartoon and the special ''It's an Adventure, Charlie Brown'' in TheEighties, it focuses on the core cast of the strip as it stood in TheSixties (Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Schroder, Sally, and Snoopy), scales back Snoopy's SpotlightStealingSquad and {{Slapstick}} tendencies (as well as having him walk on all fours), doesn't try to be [[WereStillRelevantDammit "relevant"]], and has sharper humor and a quieter, more melancholy tone than post-''SnoopyComeHome'' adaptations did. It also disregards the strip and specials' ArtEvolution in favor of using the character and background designs from TheSixties, though it keeps the voice acting style and jazz scoring forever linked to the franchise.

It was the first ''Peanuts'' special in five years (the 45th in the total lineup) and the first produced without the leadership of Charles Schulz, Lee Mendelson Productions, or Bill Melendez. Instead, it's produced by Creator/WarnerBros and Wildbrain, and animated off-shore by Creator/YearimProductions in UsefulNotes/SouthKorea. Eschewing TheMillenniumAgeOfAnimation's tendencies towards computer-assisted animation, it is animated in hand-drawings on paper with hand-painted backgrounds and a piano soundtrack composed by MarkMothersbaugh, meant to evoke the 1960's/'70s animated specials/movies as well as Music/VinceGuaraldi's scores from the earliest specials.

* TheCameo: Character cameos, to be specific. When Snoopy scans the neighborhood in imitiation of a vulture, recurring character Frieda is briefly glimpsed, as are two of the strip's original regulars, Violet and Patty. Early regular Shermy appears in a flashback directly based on the very first ''Peanuts'' strip.

Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: Or perhaps a case of Dog Pets You -- Snoopy, after having spent most of the special trying to snatch Linus's blanket, immediately gives it to him after finding it. Of course, he's right back to trying to steal it afterwards.

* NoMatterHowMuchIBeg: Linus tries this, giving Charlie Brown his blanket and telling him to hang onto it and not give it back no matter what... only to discover that Charlie Brown unceremoniously gives him the blanket back at the first hint of pleading.
