Headscratchers / Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown

Go To

  • Violette sends a letter to Charlie Brown inviting him to France, but gives no other explanation nor mention her inhospitable uncle warning them they could be staying outside.
    • Charlie Brown sure runs a long way in a short time to warn people about the fire.
    • Who lets four 8-year olds and a dog rent a car with the dog as the driver? The French I guess.
    • Violette must be homeschooled by the Baron since she doesn't see Charlie Brown at school and thus never get a chance to meet earlier.
  • Speaking of the letter Violette sends, it's shown later that she can speak and understand English, so it's odd that she wrote to Charlie Brown in French in the first place. It's a good thing Marcie learned French, though it leads to another headscratcher: where were Charlie Brown and Linus going to stay if they didn't get Violette's invitation? In fact, they didn't even know it was an invitation to stay with her until they were on the plane, so what was the plan up until then?
    • If anything, they probably would have stayed with Pierre (the farm boy they meet along the way) along with Peppermint Patty and Marcie.

  • Does anyone notice that Charlie Brown didn't pay for either of those bread loaves from the French bakery? What's up with that?
  • How does Snoopy drive? If you look closely in some shots, his legs don't even hang over the edge of the seat. No way he can reach the pedals. Then I thought that Woodstock could be controlling the pedals, but he's shown sitting beside Snoopy most of the time.
  • The Baron was known to the locals as a dangerous and hateful recluse and his chataeu was avoided like the plague. Apparently his lived alone except for Violette, his very young neice, whom he kept isolated from the outside world. Today, all of this this would be subject to very serious scrutiny.
  • What exactly did the Baron have as an occupation? He did appear to leave the chataeu on a regular basis. Given that the Baron never went by any other name during the film could he have been involved with organized crime? We did hear several characters explicitly describe the Baron as dangerous. In an era where aristocracy is out of relevance, "Baron" seems to be the type of alias that a crime boss might use.
