  • Details
Nothing can separate Linus and his beloved blue blanket, but with the news that disapproving Grandma is coming to visit, the Peanuts gang tries everything in their power to persuade the independent-minded boy to let go. In this adaptation of Charles Schulz's original comic strips, Linus holds on for dear life as big sister Lucy applies her psychiatric techniques, Charlie Brown lends a sympathetic hand and Snoopy simply snatches the blanket.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Lucy's bullying behavior causes her little brother a lot of grief. She seems to glean pleasure in watching the poor kid sweat. Some of the addictive behavior that Linus exhibits might set off alarm bells for parents, but most of that will go over kids' heads because it is played for laughs.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.


Lucy punches Charlie Brown in the nose when he calls her crabby. She also takes a baseball bat to Schroeder's clay bust of Beethoven. She bullies her little brother.


Some shaming and name-calling: "stupid," "idiot," and "disgrace."

Social Behavior

Linus needs help from his friends to wean himself off of his blanket, so the message of relying on and helping others is explored. Lucy's bullying behavior is not directly addressed.
