- Vince Guaraldi's score is given a Big Budget Beef-Up compared to the specials, and sounds amazing. The title song sung by Rod McKuen is special, too.
- John Scott Trotter's orchestrations capture a wistful, melancholy tone that fit Guaraldi's music perfectly, and the instrumental pieces that Trotter composed ("Cloud Dreams", "Bus Wheel Blues", "Blue Puck"—the titles give away which parts of the film they play under) are standouts.
- "Champion Charlie Brown." You'll find yourself humming it a lot, partly because it's sung when Charlie's at his high point. The song even makes a cameo during the opening Cinema Center Films logo.
