Production

The special directly follows the feature film Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (And Don't Come Back!!). Charlie Brown, Linus, Snoopy, Peppermint Patty, Marcie, and Woodstock are returning from their student exchange in Paris. As they head back to the train station for the return trip to London (where they would return back to the US by plane), their problematic rented car slows their progress, and while they travel, they have an opportunity to see several memorials to World Wars I and II. They come away realizing what the impact of the wars was, and how important the sacrifice of the soldiers was. One of the most moving moments of the special is Linus's recitation of the poem In Flanders Fields.

What Have We Learned, Charlie Brown? special won a Peabody Award for "distinguished achievement and meritorious public service" in broadcasting.
