From TibbyH :

What a fun and charming cartoon! "Charlie Brown's All Stars" is hands down one of the best Peanuts cartoons ever created. The story is excellent, having Charlie Brown lose his team due to the fact they just can't seem to ever win a game, and he tries his hardest to wrangle them back. This special shows some really progressive social stances as even though Charlie Brown finds someone who wants to sponsor his team, he refuses to accept their help due to the fact he'd have to kick out the girls on his team. Charlie Brown is just so likable and sympathetic. You really want to see him succeed. The animation in this special still maintains that inconsistent yet appealing aesthetic set by "A Charlie Brown Christmas", and Vince Guaraldi's music is just as amazing as always. Peanuts specials were always the most heartwarming, funniest, and best cartoons of a sadder period of animation, and All-Stars is no exception. You won't regret giving this a watch (and countless rewatches).
