The Punt, Pass, and Kick Competition is a competition seen in the TV special, You're in the Super Bowl, Charlie Brown. Charlie Brown and several of his friends enter in hopes of winning the grand prize: a new bicycle, and a free trip to the Super Bowl for the National Finals.
Rules and results
Each participant gets a chance to throw, then punt, the football as far as they can. The player with the furthest combined distance is the winner.
Lucy goes first, throwing the ball twelve feet and three inches. Her punt, however, goes straight up, bounces off her head, and ends up bouncing backwards, resulting in a measured distance of minus eight feet and four inches.
Franklin is next, throwing and kicking for twenty seven feet and six inches, and sixty feet and two inches, respectively. Peppermint Patty follows Franklin, and takes the lead with a twenty-eight feet and four inches pass and a seventy feet and eight inches punt.
"Pig-Pen" is the next participant, making a twenty-four feet, three inches throw and a dust-covered forty-five feet, two inches kick. Marcie follows "Pig-Pen", throwing for eighteen feet and six inches, but refusing to kick the ball because it did not do anything to her to deserve it.
Charlie Brown goes next, throwing for seventy-two feet and six inches, and kicking for seventy feet and four inches, taking the lead, and leading Peppermint Patty to claim "that wins it for Chuck." However, Linus follows Charlie Brown, and ends up beating him with a seventy-two feet, eight inches throw and a seventy feet, eight inches kick, giving him the lead by six inches. Linus begins to celebrate believing he is the winner.
However, a last contestant is announced, Melody-Melody. She proceeds to demolish Linus' lead with an eighty feet, six inches throw and a seventy-two feet, eight inches kick, giving her the win, the bike, and the trip to the Super Bowl.
