Format: DVD
Warner Home Video now owns the Peanuts holiday specials, after years of ownership and video releases by Paramount. And it will sell - it's a perennial Christmas classic, and deserves every accolade. But...something is missing...

The original sponsor of this special was Coca-Cola, and, like many television programs and specials of the time, had sponsor bumpers in the program. Linus crashed into a "sponsored by Coca-Cola" sign, slingshotted his blanket at Coke cans, and the end credits wished us all a "Merry Christmas from your Coca-Cola bottlers". Due to broadcast regulation changes, children's programming could no longer include direct sponsoring, and the Coke references disappeared forever after the original broadcast. Therefore, unless somebody wants to pay Coca-Cola a huge amount of money, you will never see these portions, either restored or as extras for a true collector's edition. If you own a Paramount copy, don't worry about updating your disc.

Oh, and the greatest Peanuts holiday special is coupled with the very worst Peanuts holiday special - it has never aired on network television outside of its original broadcast. The more you know...

A great special, but somebody needs to step up and do this program up in a true collector's edition.

I love it! This disc is such an improvement over Paramount's disc, both in video and audio, that I don't know where to start. So I won't. And, it appears that they did use the first-year version of the film as there were a few animation errors that were cleaned up for the second and subsequent airings, according to the creators. I'm assuming one of those errors is towards the end when the gang is standing around C.B,s tree and humming. For one split second, Pig-Pen's head disappears, revealing Patty's dress behind him. RIOT! A true American classic.

I am so disappointed with this purchase. I bought this movie for my 3 year-old for her birthday, and when I opened the box, the DVD inside was a bunch of short clips called Charlie Brown's "Christmas Tales," NOT the classic "A Charlie Brown Christmas!" I fully intend to contact Amazon for a refund or replacement. My daughter was heartbroken to discover this movie wasn't the same as the book we've been reading in preparation for Christmas.

I write this assuming you already know the story A Charlie Brown Christmas. Be warned that the audio on the Warner Bros version is a half second ahead of the video. It is more noticeable on the sounds (tapping of the aluminum tree, tossing of the directors horn) than on the dialog. This seems to only apply to the Warner Bros DVD, and not the Blu Ray.

I am not sure if I like the video on the Warner Bros either. It is a sharper image; but it also seems to be a negative quality.

This is a Christmas special that people watch every year. If I knew then what I know now, I'd have purchased the Paramount version from http://www.amazon.com/Charlie-Brown-Christmas-Ann-Altieri/dp/B00004W5UM/ref=sr_1_3?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1291690784&sr=1-3 .

One more comment: The 'making of the Christmas special' is a nice feature that is included on the Warner Bros version.

Christmas may be a time for joy and laughter, but Charlie Brown has the Blues. To get in the holiday spirit, he takes Lucy's advice and directs a Christmas play. And what's a Christmas play w/o a tree? Everyone makes fun of the short sparse "nevergreen tree" that he comes up with, until Christmas works it's true magic.

This is a classic family holiday film. It has all the characters that we have known and loved our whole lives. This DVD also contains the "It's Christmastime Again Charlie Brown" story. It has English, Spanish, Japanese and Portuguese audio tracks. This is a great way to enjoy Christmas with the whole family or with friends.

Stop right here! This one is it! Purchase this & none other! 'Charlie Brown Christmas' has never looked & sounded better. This is all the 'stuff' that is Christmas, at least up through 1965. Winter snow, ice-skating, snow-ball throwing, Christmas list to Santa, the nativity play & a not-so-great yet real tree... &, of course, a real lengthy scriptural passage read by Linus! Now it wouldn't be Schulz if there weren't his characters' cynicism, materialistic concessions & rants! This is the first real collaboration for Schulz, Melendez, Mendleson & the great Vince Guaraldi (music). And it was all conceived & completed in 6-months!!! This unimaginable, limited amount of time actually worked in its success in that it looks nothing like Disney, Looney Toons &/or a pedestrian children's Saturday cartoon.

Schulz insisted that the integrity & look of his strip be evident in every frame which allowed Melendez (an ex-Disney animator) to move the gang statically (much like how 'South Park' would look years later), complete w/asides & glaring close-ups... cheating, if you will, & yet establishing a sort of compromised 'strip-vs.-cartoon' hybrid. It gave it its look (which, by the way, lost its trademark style in the early '70's... ugh! What happened!?!)
The other remarkable element are the voices themselves in that real children were used on the soundtrack. Here we have the best, most memorable voices in all the decades of this (or any other) animation. Christopher Shea (as Linus) & Peter Robbins (as Charlie Brown) are the only voices... the only...! Even sister Sally's voice is the best. In later installments the children sound like they're reading a script as hired professionals. on 'Christmas' they sound authentically conversational, witty, sarcastic & 'charlie-browny'!!!

Does it matter to get Blu-ray for old television shows that were never...
The better question is this:

Is a 30 minute show worth $20 on Blu-ray?

The Peanuts specials were all 1/2 hour in length, appoximately 23 minutes with the other 7 minutes taken up by Dolly Madison commercials when they first aired in the 60s and 70s.

How could you be too old for Charlie Brown Christmas? I'm 36 and I still love watching the Peanuts specials. Got my daughter hooked on them as well.

Amazon consideres Christianity a "Mythology?"
Guidelines for these postings from Amazon include not making statements that "denigrate others". Charlie and I feel slighted that our faith seems mocked with the mythology label.

Dialogue track sync problem
You're absolutely correct -- I too noticed the same sync problem, and I'm returning my DVD to Amazon for a refund. We must not accept such shoddy, careless work! I suspect the late Charles Schulz would be neither pleased nor amused....
