It's the Pied Piper, Charlie Brown2000
It's the Pied Piper, Charlie Brown is the last animated special produced under the supervision of Charles M. Schulz. Based on characters from the comic strip Peanuts, it was released on September 12, 2000, seven months after the death of Charles Schulz. It's The Pied Piper also has the distinction of being the first new Peanuts special to be released to DVD.
It's the Pied Piper, Charlie Brown is a retelling to Sally by Charlie Brown of the story how the Pied Piper of Hamelin (portrayed by Snoopy as the Pied Piper Beagle) chased away all the mice (changed by Charlie Brown from rats because, upon the story saying that the rats fought the dogs and killed the cats, Sally is terrified of rats) from the city of Hamelin. The Peanuts kids substitute some characters, Snoopy being the Pied Piper Beagle with his contract being for a year's supply of dog food. Snoopy plays a concertina (squeezebox, with presumably David Benoit doing the honors). Instead of bringing the kids out of town with his music, Snoopy does it to the mayor and his assistants. When Charlie Brown finishes, Sally doesn't think it would happen in real life. When they hear music and look out the window to see what it is, they see Snoopy on his doghouse using music to make Linus, Lucy, Franklin and Peppermint Patty dance around his doghouse. Lucy stops dancing long enough to shout, "Charlie Brown, get your stupid dog to stop playing his music!"
The special breaks Peanuts tradition in that it shows adults, who speak audible language (unlike most other Peanuts specials in which adults are only heard off stage speaking in "wah wah wah" sound of a muted trombone). The other good examples are the This is America, Charlie Brown miniseries, which portrayed adult historical figures alongside the kids, as well as "Life Is a Circus, Charlie Brown," which featured a talking circus announcer.
Violet, Peppermint Patty, Schroeder, Pig-Pen, Marcie, and Franklin also appear but have no lines.
