Product Description

Charlie Brown's Christmas Tales is a series of Christmas-themed animated stories, in which each of the beloved PEANUTS characters star in his or her own charming animated vignette. Bonus episode: Is This Goodbye, Charlie Brown - New-to-DVD! Linus must break the devastating news that his family is moving. Charlie Brown and the gang make their goodbyes and prepare for Linus and Lucy's departure.

A series of short animated scenes about Christmastime, Charlie Brown's Christmas Tales runs only 18 minutes, but this 2002 production shows just how differently Snoopy, Linus, Sally, Lucy, and Charlie Brown approach the holiday season. While Snoopy rings a bell on the street corner to collect money and makes an effort to pacify the cat next door, Lucy works hard to convince all her friends to give her presents. Linus struggles to find the right voice for his letter to Santa and tries to figure out how to get to know the elusive girl who sits behind him in class. Sally discovers a novel way to bring down a Christmas tree, and she and Charlie Brown wait for Santa Claus and make a surprising discovery about his stature in the process. The bonus 1983 television episode Is This Goodbye, Charlie Brown? is a bit longer, at 24 minutes, and deals with the melancholy departure of Linus and Lucy when their father gets a job in another city. The reactions of Charlie Brown, Sally, and their other friends run the gamut from denial to anger and sadness, but the van Pelt family's departure also inspires some surprising actions and confessions from Peppermint Patty, Schroeder, and Snoopy. While the DVD run time is admittedly short, these lesser-known Charlie Brown specials are entertaining and hard to find, a combination that makes this compilation a worthy addition to every Peanuts collection. (Ages 3 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable collection of short tales December 27, 2009
By Banacek
I ran across this DVD at my local CVS Pharmacy for $13. The Christmas Tales are a selection of short scenes, similar in format to the special "It's Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown". If you liked that one, then you'll probably like this one as well. I found them both enjoyable. The Christmas Tales were originally released in 2002, but I missed them somehow. I'm glad I found them on this 2009 DVD, released for the 60th anniversary of Peanuts.

The second feature, "Is This Goodbye, Charlie Brown?", is a story about Linus and Lucy moving away when their father takes a new job out of town. It's a little melancholy at times, with the Peanuts gang saying goodbye and adjusting the idea of friends moving away, but it's not an emotional roller coaster like the "Snoopy, Come Home" story. Of course, it has the usual satisfying ending when the move turns out to be temporary.

As far as I know, neither of these specials are available on any other current DVDs, so I'm glad that I picked this one up when I found it. If they keep releasing more "collection DVDs" (like the 60's collection and the 70's collection volume 1 that were released in 2009), then I suppose that these specials will eventually appear on an upcoming release. In the meantime, though, this is a good way to get them without duplicating something you already have.

Christmas Tales is a sweet group of five holiday shorts which in total are a brief eighteen minutes long. Note that these shorts are the same ones included as a bonus on the original version of the -- I Want a Dog For Christmas, Charlie Brown DVD. They have been removed from the remastered edition of Dog for Christmas, I suppose in preparation for this release.

However, this is the first DVD release for the bonus feature -- Is This Good-Bye, Charlie Brown? -- which originally aired in 1983 and is twenty-eight minutes long. So, if attempting to compile a complete set of Peanuts features, this is an essential addition.

...don't make the same mistake that I did. I bought this collection expecting to get something new, but this is the same show as is included with the release of I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely love it December 19, 2010
By 80s fan
I love Charlie Brown Christmas Tales. I love that they put Lydia in, I love Sally's funny voice, and I love Snoopy. Also the bonus episode Is This Good Bye Charlie Brown is also good too. I got this at CVS and it was worth it. I hope everyone enjoys it. Happy holidays.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brief but excellent program in "classic" style! December 14, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First off, the main feature here (Charlie Brown's Christmas Tales) is only 18 minutes long. But what this lacks in minutes, it makes up in quality, assuming you are a fan of "Peanuts", particularly of the early/mid 1960's. Although this was created in 2002, it's very true to the original Peanuts strips, as well as true to the original "A Charlie Brown Christmas" television special. Other than a brief appearance by "Woodstock", you might think this program was made in the mid 1960's (there's no internet or cell phones, no flat screen tvs, just the same things you'd have seen in the 1960's). Not only is this very true to that Peanuts era, it's very funny, in very much the Charles Schulz style of humor.

The program is presented as 5 separate parts, "Merry Christmas" from the 5 different main characters here: Snoopy, Linus, Lucy, Sally, and Charlie Brown. But the 5 parts also work together as a unified whole. While each "featured" character is a little more prominent in their own segment, nearly all the characters are in each segment. And the 5 "tales" progress through a Christmas season, with ice skating, writing to Santa Claus, trying to obtain a Christmas tree, and finally arriving at Christmas Day in the final segment. So the 5 "tales" could be viewed as a single story.

A great effort apparently went into making this very authentic, very true to the comic strip and the original tv special. The animation is so true to the comic strip, you might believe that Charles Schulz had drawn every panel himself. The humor is very Peanuts/Schulz too - many of the sequences/jokes are directly from the comic strip, and those which are original are completely in the truest style of 1960's era Schulz.
