In Volume 6 of This Is America, Charlie Brown (The Birth of the Constitution), the Peanuts gang are asked to help out while our Founding Fathers discuss the Constitution in 1788. Charlie Brown helps with valet parking (saddling up horses) and experiments with some new games, Snoopy is the guard-dog, Peppermint Patty and Marcie serve water, Linus is the greeter, and Lucy is in charge of cleanup (and of course, complains about it!). Questions abound: should the new country have more governmental power or less? Lucy thinks the solution is to have a queen! Benjamin Franklin stops by Charlie Brown's house to borrow one of his kites for his latest experiment! Snoopy and Woodstock clown around with colonial wigs and try rowing a sinking boat (with Snoopy posing as General George Washington!). This video features a lovely soundtrack by George Winston (known for his Windham Hill collections), who plays Vince Guaraldi's original standards on both piano and harpsicord.
