Segment Summary: Charlie Brown's sister, Sally, nurses a "sick" Linus back to health.
- This segment is a mashup of the Peanuts comic and the film Misery.
- Snoopy and Woodstock wear costumes that parody those of Batman and Robin on the 1960s live-action show.
- Snoopy tosses Linus at a tree in a manner very similar to what happens to Charlie Brown at the beginning of A Charlie Brown Christmas. In the original broadcast, Linus is thrown into a sign for the sponsor of the broadcast, Coca-Cola.
- Other references to "A Charlie Brown Christmas" includes the christmas tree Sally brings out before breaking Linus' legs, and Linus speech about Sally at the end, which mirrors Linus' speech about the christmas tree in that special.
Trivia / Info:
- Snoopy is constantly referred to as Val Kilmer, the actor who played Batman in Batman Forever.
- When Linus' leg gets whacked by Sally, he yells "Schulz!". This is a reference to Charles M. Schulz, creator of The Peanuts.
- This segment suggests that Charlie Brown is bald because of chermotherapy.
- If paused at the right point, the first letter can be read. It reads
" TO ANYONE, THIS IS A CRY FOR HELP. I AM BEING HELD PRISONER BY A CRAZY BITCH. ~LINUS"
Goofs / Nitpicks:
- Franklin didn't appear until 1968. This is based around A Charlie Brown Christmas, which was released in 1965.
- When Linus unties himself, his legs weren't in bandages. It must be assumed that the scene was made before Sally breaks his legs.
- Woodstock disappears from the skit after he and Snoopy dresses up as Batman and Robin.
