With elections both looming in both Canada and in the United States, it’s only appropriate to have Linus thrown into the mix of the campaign trail for his own election at his school level. Not the cream of the crop but still good entertainment for Peanut fans. This is the first appearance of both "Joe Cool" and Woodstock in the Peanut animation universe.
The plot is taken from a story that ran in the comic strip in October 1964, in which Linus ran for school president with Charlie Brown as his running mate. That time, when Linus brought up the Great Pumpkin in a speech, he was laughed off the stage and had blown his chance for election.
