It's April Fool's Day, Charlie Brown is to be an upcoming cartoon animated television special airing on Cartoon Network on April 1, 2018. It stars the voice talents from The Peanuts Movie, along with Andy Beall as Snoopy and Woodstock (voice effects, replacing the late Bill Melendez respectively).
It's April Fool's Day at school, and everybody, including Lucy, is playing jokes and pranks on one another.
Lucy, however, primarily targets Charlie Brown, humiliating him for most of the entire day.
Then right after she sets a tray of chocolate mousse pudding on his seat, he gets right back at her with a gift box that glares a bright light.
Unfortunately, he's not aware that the box temporarily blinds somebody.
Lucy decides to use this to her advantage by acting like she's permanently blind.
She occasionally messes up by proving that she's not blind, but she manages to cover it up.
Right after he walks her home, he follows his unseen dad's advice and asks her if she'd like to go to the April Fool's Day dance off party held at the school.
She accidentally reveals to Violet that she's pretending to be blind only to reveal to Charlie Brown that it's another practical joke and prank, but Linus overhears this and tells him.
They come up with a plan to finally get back at Lucy without disturbing her this time.
Charlie Brown and Lucy dance around while Linus opens up the swimming pool that's in the gym room. When the dance off party ends, Charlie Brown spins Lucy right into the pool.
