I've only seen Christmas and Great Pumpkin recently but I saw many of these as a kid and remember a number of them quite vividly. Others I probably saw but the names don't ring a bell. Probably haven't seen any newer than '85.

1. A Charlie Brown Christmas - A ("Christmas Time Is Here", is right up there with Judy Garland's "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" for tear-jerking Christmas songs)
2. Snoopy Come Home - A- (I remember this being absolutely devastating as a kid, haven't seen it since.)
3. The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe - A- (Another one I loved as a kid. I remember the big battle scene with all the fantastical creatures fighting)
4. It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown - B+
5. A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving - B
(Some clever stuff but even as a kid I was dissatisfied with the ending)
6. Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown - B
7. Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (And don't Come Back!) - B-
8. It's Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown - C- (this may have been what put me off of watching anymore Charlie Brown shows)

Own: 1 (Have Frosty Returns in a Christmas DVD pack and we've never opened it. My father-in-law has some of the Charlie Brown shows so I didn't buy them since the kids can watch them over there or just borrow them)

Now which one was the one with the whitewater rafting trip and which one was the one where they're running track and Charlie Brown is winning, but he misses the turn and runs out of the stadium?
2002 Sight & Sound Challenge: 321  Last Watched: L'enfance Nue
Last 8 Films Watched: In the Loop - A- / It Might Get Loud - B+ / What Just Happened? - B / Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs - C- / Drums Along the Mohawk - A- / Punisher War Zone - B+ / Moon - C+ / A Man For All Seasons - B+

Well, I know I've seen most of these. The stand-outs are Xmas and Snoopy Come Home -- both very moving. The worst, at least as I remember it, was Race For Your Life.

I had a special fondness for Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe as a child, but I'm not sure how it would hold up today.

Whitewater rafting is Race For Your Life. The other one I'm not sure, but I've definitely seen that one too.
