The Mayflower: Bradford and Snoopy


Evaluate Charles Schulz's version of the Mayflower crossing. What is the perspective he takes when describing the events of 1620? Did you learn anything new from "The Mayflower Voyagers"? How does it compare to the story told in your readings?

the charlie brown movie was very good because it did ot make the native americans look bad and like savages. it proved that the natives were kind and helpful to the pilgrims.

I think the movie The Mayflower: Bradford and Snoopy was a very good movie. I believe that it is a good movie because it is relativly accurate but it is also easy to understand. It is a good movie for young and old alike and is a good movie to learn about the Mayflower.

I think that it is a good movie but I'm not sure if it is that accurate because they made almost all of the adults die but none of the chlidren died.i also believe that it was for a younger group of chlidren and that is why they didn't kill the chlidren

I think that it was accurate and I completly agree with Max on the fact that they didn't make the Natives look bad. Although in all little kid books or shows, they don't make them look bad.
Another thing was that the movie was kinda weird. They had Charlie Brown narrate it and it seemed like a made up story. How he has such a childish voice and to be honest, no one in our class or Mrs. Andersons 8-9 period class really took the movie seroiusly.
The movie was accurate, but EXTREAMLY childish.

I enjoyed the charlie brown movie for many reasons. The movie doesn't portray the indians in a rasicts manner, like in the pocahontas movie, they showed them being nice to the pilgrims and nobody was caling eachother savages. I also enjoyed the movie because it wasnt boreing and it wa educational. I learned things about the indians who farmed the land and then were wiped out. I also learned about the two indians who helped the English.

the charlie brown movie was similar to the real voyage but i believe that the authors leave the hardships to a blunt point (for a good reason). This would be good for younger kids but not descriptive enough for teenagers.

I think the Snoopy movie was good movie to watch. Not only does it give you a different viewpoint, but it brings up a good debate topic. I personally think it is a good movie for children to see because it is accurate. It leaves out specifics and tells the story in a understandable, straightforward way. I think everyone should see this movie some point in their lives. It doesnt describe either the Natives or the Settlers, as bad people or good people, it just tells the story the way it happened.

The movie is ok for little kids but it is not very accurate. The general plot is historicaly correct but the details are not very correct at all

I think that this video is a great one for the holidays, it may not be completly accurate but it brings people together. Some of the things in the movie are just for commedy but a alot of it is correct. It is one of the most understandable hisotic movies that i have ever seen. I never knew that they found land that was already cleared from a tribe that suffered a terrible plague and all died accept for one. i thought that was interesting

In my opinion, the Mayflower was a good animated movie about the pilgrims. It seemed to go out of its way to be acurate--which was a good thing for a historical animated movie, because it was able to portray acurate things about history, leaving people with the right impression. Unlike pocahontas, it actually gives a lot of true information about the Mayflower. I think that it is a better movie to show children than Pocahontas is. It may also be a good movie for adults because it portrays accurately the voyage of the Mayflower.

The charlie brown movie was very good because it said that there were only a few passengers left at the end of the voyage and that they said they were going back to englad.

I think that the Charlie Brown Movie was excelent, with only a few inacurrate things. The movie even had a few things in it that any of the our reading had in it. It didn't portray the Native people as savages or bad people, it showed then as nice caring people not savages. The only thing that i didn't like about the movie is that the cartoons of the Native Americans were a little bit steryotypical, it showed them with huge noses, dark skin, feathers in their hair, and many other steryotypical things for a Native American. In general i think that the movie was very good, but also VERY childish.
