  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A Boy Named Charlie Brown is a 1969 American animated film, produced by Cinema Center Films and Lee Mendelson Films for National General Pictures and directed by Bill Melendez, it is the first feature film based on the Peanuts comic strip. It was also the final time that Peter Robbins voiced the character of Charlie Brown. (Robbins had voiced the role for all the Peanuts television specials up to that point, starting with the debut of the specials, 1965's A Charlie Brown Christmas.)

Tropes used in A Boy Named Charlie Brown include:
  • Covers Always Lie: The DVD cover shows Lucy clutching Charlie Brown's arm and staring up at him adoringly. Not only is the whole movie about the ways in which she ruins his life (and no Jerk with a Heart of Gold moments, either), this also makes no sense if you know anything about Lucy.
  • Disney Acid Sequence: A lot of the musical numbers fall under this.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: Near the end of the movie, Sally wants to know whether Linus is going to take her to an R-rated movie. "For mature audiences only."
  • Second Place Is for Losers: Poor Charlie Brown, yet again...he was so close!
  • Written Sound Effect: When Lucy shows Charlie Brown a slideshow of his flaws, she somehow captured the word "POW" on the slide showing his lack of style.
  • X Must Not Win: Where X equals - who else? - Charlie Brown; he screws up spelling "beagle" due to a combination of Snoopy (who is a beagle) following him along and worry over Linus getting angry at Charlie Brown for a trivial reason.
