I have been waiting for quite a while for my nearly 5 year-old son and me to sit down and watch the new Ninja Turtles movie. He was a bit too young to see it when it came out in the theatre, but now that it’s available on Netflix streaming, I’ve been hyping it up to him.
However, we’ve still yet to watch it…
That’s because the same week Ninja Turtles hit Netflix streaming, we received the Peanuts Emmy Honored Collection in our mailbox, to review here on Family Friendly Daddy Blog.
With that being said, every night before bedtime, we’ve sat down as a family and watched an episode of Peanuts. This set contains more than 4 hours (265 minutes) of Charlie Brown and his friends.
I would have to say our favorite episode is “It’s Magic, Charlie Brown.” Produced the same year my wife and I were born, 1981, this hilarious episode features Snoopy trying out his newly acquired “magic tricks” on all the kids.
When Snoopy turns Charlie Brown invisible and but is unable to turn him back, Snoopy desperately tries to find ways to remedy the situation; including covering him in mud, as well as wrapping him up in a sheet and a necktie.
The most memorable episode is “Why, Charlie Brown, Why?” from 1990. Linus befriends a girl named Janice, who he soon discovers has leukemia.
It’s so heartfelt to watch Linus care for her, visit her in the hospital, comfort her as she loses her hair, defends her against a bully who teased her, and celebrate with her when she recovers from her cancer.
Needless to say, my son has thoroughly enjoyed watching Peanuts every night. And with a few more episodes left to go, we’ve still yet to watch the new Ninja Turtles movie.
