TOP 1000 REVIEWERon January 3, 2013
To my delight, when this CHARLIE BROWN & SNOOPY SHOW DVD set arrived I turned the discs over to find they are actual MANUFACTURED PRESSED DVDS with a silver color to the recorded side and actual pressing numbers on the disc. (494033) 7000052919.2 01. My player also informs me that this is a DVD VIDEO and not a DVD-R disc.

Burned DVD-Rs will have a blue-ish tint to the recorded side and no pressing numbers.

Just why Warner Brothers has decided to market this through their Warner Archive division is unknown (their archive website also indicates that these are DVD-Rs). It is possible that these were manufactured for mass market sales, including retail stores, and then yanked over to the exclusive Warner Archive division. If this is the case, then once the MANUFACTURED PRESSED DVDS run out they will likely be replaced by burned DVD-Rs. I suggest everyone hurry up and buy their copies now to get the real manufactured DVDs.

I notice that the packaging does not mention the "WARNER ARCHIVE COLLECTION" as all other Archive releases do. However it does have the Warner Archive barcode sequence on the back.

If you have never seen this show before, it is a fully animated version of short stories based on the actual comic strips. You will get two longer stories plus several short sketches to fill out each 22 minute 25 second show. It feels more like reading the comic strips than the annual holiday specials do. As long as you are prepared for short stories, you will enjoy thie series.

Good Grief; those "blockheads" at Warner Archive had recently put out The Complete Series for The Charlie Brown and Snoopy. For those of you that don't know, The Charle Brown and Snoopy Show was a series made for Saturday morning. The first season was shown in 1983 while the second season was done in 1985 (with lyrics added to the opening theme). I think the reason why it only lasted two seasons was because Charles Schulz was probably too busy to work with a Saturday morning show (after all, writing for a Saturday morning cartoon and a comic strip would be too much). If he had sent somebody else to write them and let the characters stay true to his comic stip, it probably would have lasted a lot longer, but that's just it; Schulz did not believe that anyone would be up to the task. Besides, at that point, they didn't NEED a Saturday morning show; the specials have since become classics and continue to air on TV to this day. The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show, however, did end up in syndicaion and have aired on Disney Channel and was last seen on TV on Nickelodeon.
The shows are very entertaining (I still remember some of them from my childhood such as Lucy kicking Linus out of the house, Peppermint Patty staying at Snoopy's doghouse while her dad's away, and of course, the gambling problem caused by Rerun, causing the baseball team to lose their first game they ever won). The segments in each episode ranges from about a minute to about 6 minutes, so watchin a bunch of storylines in one disc with your favorite Peanuts characters will bring the biggest die hard fan in heaven for the next 2hrs or so. However, because of the new deadlines for Saturday morning programs in contrast to primetime airings, there are some mistakes made in some of the episodes. Some are minor such as off modeled characters, but in one episode, they made the mistake of making Linus's blanket GREEN; not light blue, and the bad part about it is that it was one of the many storylines that you'll find on this set that revolves around Linus and his blanket. So in order to correct it; they had whoever was the voice of Lucy dub over for the first 5 seconds of the segment stating to kids that "Linus has a stupid new green blanket" to avoid confusion. Fergie fans will be happy to know that Fergie (as a kid) did the voice of Sally on some of these episodes. She is credited as Stacy Fergison and does a very good job as Sally.
As for the collection itself, it is comprised of two DVD-Rs (remember, Warner Archive will only make a copy for YOU via MOD). As a first time buyer of Warner Archive, I can say that the menus are really EASY to navigate. No trailers, and no build up like what Disney does just to plug themselves. The episodes vary in quality from episode to episode, but they either look great or excellent, and will look absolutly fine if you have an HD TV. There are no bonus features, but who cares; the fun of watching these on DVD is better than those recent Happiness is Peanuts releases (with one episode of the Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show and one special).
Final thoughts is that I highly recommend it to any fan of Charlie Brown and the Peanuts. Here's hoping that the Warner Archive team will look deeper into not just the Peanuts cartoons (It's and Adventure Charlie Brown, Why Charlie Brown Why), but also the Warner Brothers animation library (a proper release of Quick Draw McGraw perhaps).

This cartoon series doesn't try to modernize Charlie Brown or the rest of the characters; the show isn't set to '80s synth music and isn't covered in leg warmers. Rather, The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show stays true to Charles Schulz' endearing, simple ideas of these children, with plenty of funny shenanigans to watch. My only wish for this series was that the stories could have been deeper or richer, but more time would have been required for each episode.

Our family have really enjoyed viewing this Dvd. Its good, clean, funny entertainment which is hard to find these days and we were surprised how our children took to it so easily, given that the humour of the eighties is vastly different from today's humour. Highly recommend.

This dvd doesn't offer subtitles for hearing impaired. That's a big problem for those of us who are. I should have checked that out better.

Aside from September's Peanuts Emmy-Honored Collection DVD set, the Peanuts TV series are also unlabeled Peanuts 1980's Collections. The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show had 18 shows from 1983 to 1985, and the mini-series, This is America, Charlie Brown had just 8 shows from 1988 to at least '89, all of them are now on DVD! You never know what kind of shenanigans the Peanuts gang will get into next, with this series; each episode has anywhere from 3 to 11 segments mainly based on the comic strip. If you don't wanna settle for the Happiness is Peanuts DVDs or newest deluxe editions for The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show, you'll get all 18 shows in this Warner Archive release also sold here on Amazon, as a 2-dual-layered-disc DVD-R set! Good grief, what a set!

This is the complete series that aired in the 80s, inspired by the Charlie Brown specials that started airing in the 60s. Thos means that the classic specials are not included in this. So make sure this is what you're looking for!
