"The Music and Heroes of America" is the eighth and final episode of This Is America, Charlie Brown. It first aired on CBS on May 23, 1989.


Schroeder and Franklin try to present a school pageant about great American musicians, ranging from Stephen Foster to John Phillip Sousa to rock'n'rollers, but is interrupted by both the antics of Snoopy and Lucy, who decides to give her report on famous American heroes-including Susan B. Anthony, Amelia Earheart, George Washington Carver, and Martin Luther King-on the same stage at the same time. At the end, Charlie Brown picks his favorite song: "Linus and Lucy".
