Look, life is a lot sometimes. A lot of the time. Sometimes the only thing that makes life bearable is the little comforts. Family. Friends. Processed sugar. The shows we loved when we were kids. Like Peanuts. Isn’t that the reason we keep rewatching the Christmas special?
So, okay, I admit it, Snoopy Presents: One-of-a-Kind Marcie sounds like just my kind of thing. I’ll watch it. I’ll enjoy it. I’ll probably re-watch it. This is my comfort, and I do not regret it.
If you wanna watch it with me, the synopsis for the special reads: “Sometimes the people who make the biggest difference, aren’t the ones who grab the spotlight. In “Snoopy Presents: One-of-a-Kind Marcie,” we get to see first-hand how our lovable introvert, Marcie, makes a monumental difference from behind the scenes both for her friends and her community. To train for the school golf championship, Marcie assists Peppermint Patty as her caddie, offering thoughtful and deliberate advice to help her win. Meanwhile, after coming up with brilliant solutions to her classmates’ problems – from hallway traffic jams to lunchtime pizza shortages – Marcie is unexpectedly elected as class president…a role she never wanted. Suddenly thrust into the spotlight, Marcie struggles to cope with the expectations of her new job and retreats as far from the public eye as possible. As the golf championship begins, Marcie is still in hiding and Peppermint Patty is forced to tee off with Charlie Brown filling in as her caddie. But after some wise advice and a little introspection, Marcie realizes she can still make a difference for her friends and the school – she’ll just have to buck other people’s expectations and do it her own unique way.”
