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. Imagine—the real Thanksgiving comes in out of the comic page, which may say something very authentic about the U.S.A. right now, when there is so much for which the country really can't give thanks. (p. 27)
