YMMV / Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown

Go To

  • Awesome Music:
    • The music that plays during the fire.
    • Special mention goes to the orchestral soundtrack that is heard throughout the film. Quite different from the usual jazz piano style of Peanuts. Some of the sweeping orchestral themes were reminiscent of Hiroshi Miyagawa, which actually helped to give this film a more dramatic, even Darker and Edgier tone than is usually seen in ''Peanuts'.
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: Snoopy playing tennis in Wimbledon. Doesn't make it any less hilarious.
  • Narm:
    • Linus saying "Use my blanket to catch us!"
    • The way Charlie Brown runs several miles constantly yelling "fire" without explaining anything.
    • The stock screams when Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Linus are nearly struck by lightning.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song:
    • When the Peanuts characters are in London, a tune that sounds very similar to "Rule Britannia!" is frequently heard.
    • The music that plays when Snoopy is sneaking across the Chateau during his, Charlie Brown's, and Linus' first night there sounds eerily like the James Bond theme.
  • Tear Jerker: Snoopy is at a bar in France, and puts a few coins into the jukebox. He sits down and starts swaying to the music, while Woodstock plays a violin. When the music gets sadder, he starts crying, similar to the gag in the Halloween special. It even reuses the sound of Snoopy crying from that special. In this instance, however, the song ends on a happy note.
  • Values Dissonance: Snoopy's hand gestures at the other drivers when the car gets rear-ended. Many of the gestures he performs that would be extremely rude in Europe (like Snoopy running his hand under his chin, equivalent to Flipping the Bird) just look weird to an American.
    • Marcie's insults in the same scene really don't make any sense to American children either, even those with some understanding of French. For example, one of the most frequent is "Ooh, le car!" - she's basically saying, "Oh, the car!" which isn't even insulting without any sort of context.
    • The fact that the Baron's dangerously antisocial attitude was well known to the locals, one would wonder why they weren't concerned for Violette's safety. Also, the bartender to whom the Baron confided his intentions to get rid of the intruders (who were clearly identified to be just children) should probably have called the gendarmes as there was no mistaking the Baron's tone and deadly intentions.


How well does it match the trope?
