The Plot Of “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving”
The story is about Peppermint Patty calling Charlie Brown to organize a Thanksgiving dinner that she invites herself and her friends to. Charlie doesn’t get a chance to say much before she hangs up the phone and finds himself trying to figure out what to cook because he only knows how to make “cold cereal and maybe toast.”
Charlie’s friend Linus shows up to the rescue and recruits Snoopy and Woodstock to help create the holiday feast. They get to work on making the meal and later all the guests arrive to the dinner table where Linus begins the celebration with a prayer.
After that Snoopy serves everyone jelly beans, pretzel sticks, an ice cream sundae, popcorn, and buttered toast. Patty becomes outraged at the untraditional meal and angrily goes off on Charlie Brown which makes him leave the table upset.
Feeling bad about her actions she asks Charlie Brown’s sister Marcie to go apologie to him for her in which she agrees to but then follows her and ends up apologizing to Charlie herself.
He accepts her apology and shortly after that Charlie realizes that he’s late to his grandma’s other Thanksgiving dinner. When he calls her to tell her he’s going to be late she finds out his friends haven’t eaten yet and invites them all over.
Everyone happily goes to his grandma’s dinner except Snoopy and Woodstock who go back to Snoopy’s dog house and proceed to make their own traditional Thanksgiving dinner with turkey and pumpkin pie.
