ABOUT THE SPECIAL: It’s Spring Training, Charlie Brown was a prime-time animated television special that was produced in 1992 but never aired. It was finally released on video in 1996 alongside 1966’s Charlie Brown’s All-Stars. The special follows the spring training of Charlie Brown's baseball team, which is having problems. A child named Leland (Frieda's little brother) joins the team. Lucy points out that they are the only team without uniforms, so Charlie Brown and his team train hard for the first game of the season. Thanks to Leland, Charlie Brown's team wins, 27 to 26, therefore getting their uniforms (A recurring plot line is that Leland is so short the other team's pitcher either constantly walks him or beans him in his batting helmet). However, the team loses their next game because Leland has to quit because their new uniforms are too big for him, with Charlie Brown saying at the end, "It's not how you look, it's how you play the game."
