It should have been expected that Peppermint Patty would kick the national holiday around [in "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving"], and that Marcie and Franklin would find a fresh way of celebrating the traditional event. Their faces are precise, highly individual and their remarks full of wit and irony.
