Summer's winding down -- time to reminisce about your time off; anything as memorable as the season in ''National Lampoon's Vacation,'' ''Little Darlings,'' and more?
WHAT IT'S ABOUT The ''Peanuts'' gang, at summer camp for the first time, compete in a river raft race against a group of bullies.
WHY WE LOVE IT Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty, Marcy, Franklin, and Linus are not only lovable, they're resourceful, too: While stuck out in the woods, they manage to have cereal for breakfast. (Were they carrying boxes of it in their backpacks?) Race for Your Life even sneaks in some sly lessons about democracy: Peppermint Patty is obsessed with voting on every little decision the kids have to make.
FUN FACT Co-director Phil Roman later worked on several Garfield specials.
