“I think I’m afraid of being happy because whenever I get too happy something bad always happens.”
― Charles M. Schulz
The quote above could very well be a personal mantra adopted by one of the worlds most beloved underdogs – a boy named Charlie Brown. However, this doesn’t keep him from continually striving to find happiness and the respect of his friends and classmates.
When we catch up with the lovable Blockhead, his happiness is being sought by way of winning the affections of the new girl in school – The Little Red-Headed Girl. To achieve this end, Chuck is going to have to overcome his fears and pull out all the stops.
Snoopy, on the other hand, finds himself pitched in battle against his new rival, the legendary World War I fighter ace known as The Red Baron. He’ll take to the skies in the cockpit of his Sopwith Camel (little red dog house), to fiercely (and comically) battle against his nemesis.
Will our underdog and his beloved beagle emerge victorious in their respective endeavors? We shall see.
