Editorial Reviews

The Peanuts gang celebrates the coming of spring in this animated TV special. Linus has promised all his friends that the Easter Beagle will soon be arriving to bring candy and colored eggs to the neighborhood children. Unfortunately, after his many miscalculations with the Great Pumpkin, not everyone is so sure that the holiday hound will actually show up. Meanwhile, Snoopy helps Woodstock find the birdhouse of his dreams, Peppermint Patty discovers teaching Marcie how to make Easter Eggs is no walk in the park, and Sally buys a new pair of shoes for spring. Originally aired on April 9, 1974, It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown was the twelfth in the long-running series of animated specials featuring the characters of Charles M. Schulz's popular comic strip.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Holiday Fun with the Peanuts Gang March 11, 2003
Easter's coming, and the gang is trying to get ready for it in different ways. Sally wants a new pair of shoes. Peppermint Patty is trying to teach Marcy how to color eggs. Snoopy wants to do a good deed for Woodstock. Charlie Brown is upset by the site of Christmas pre-sales at the local department store. And Linus is telling everyone about the Easter Beagle who rises up on Easter morning to give eggs to all the children. Will this familiar sounding tale have the same outcome as the Great Pumpkin?
This disc's bonus feature is "It's Arbor Day, Charlie Brown." Sally has to give a report on this obscure holiday, and it gets the gang in the mood to participate. As a surprise to Charlie Brown, his baseball team decides to spruce up the baseball field will all kinds of new plants with surprising and humorous results.
Once again, I've never seen these two specials before getting this disc yet was utterly charmed by them both. While I was a little surprised and disappointed that the Easter one didn't reference the Biblical story ala A Charlie Brown Christmas, that's a minor point. I loved every minute of Arbor Day. It's a more coherent story and has some classic moments. Plus I learned a little more about this holiday. (I confess, my knowledge was about like Sally's at the beginning, so anything was better then nothing.)
If you've bought other Peanuts DVD's you know exactly what to expect here. The picture and sound quality are good, but there aren't any extras.
While extras would be nice, these discs are certainly fun the way they are. Any Peanuts fan will want this disc to continue their collection of these holiday classics.

4.0 out of 5 stars I think this movie is awesome! November 12, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
Don't believe the "bad press!" I think this mini-movie is hysterical. Woodstock's "groovy pad" is the ultimate. And you can't help but love the fact that you end up wanting to smack Marcy for being so dense. My friends and I (average age - 25) love "It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown." I definitely recommend it for any Peanuts fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic, enjoyable Peanuts special March 22, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
"Easter Beagle" is one of the classic Peanuts TVspecials, and still makes for fun viewing, even more than a quartercentury after its first broadcast. Although the Easter theme seems a bit tenuous at points, we and our kids enjoy watching the Peanuts gang's antics. Indeed, some of the "surreal" bits (such as the dancing in the department store) are some of the kids' favorite scenes. And Peppermint Patty's repeated "AAAAAAUUGH!" at Marcie's various egg-cooking mistakes never fails to throw our 6-year-old into the giggles. END

5.0 out of 5 stars The Easter Beagle Is Coming (We Hope)! April 18, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This is truly a classic Charlie Brown special! Marcy wastes 3 dozen eggs trying to roast, fry, waffle, or cook them instead of hard-boiling them. Peppermint Patty runs out of money (and patience!). Snoopy goofs around in the mall and generously buys Woodstock a birdhouse (and gets his nose caught in it!). Then of course, there's the Easter Beagle. He comes to bring Easter eggs to all the good boys and girls in the world! Linus promotes his coming, but Sally isn't willing to believe him after what happened during Halloween (in It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown). Will the Easter Beagle come? Will he dance with the bunnies, Peppermint Patty, Marcy, and even give crabby Lucy a kiss? Check it out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Snoopy Spring Begins February 7, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I have always felt a little let down after the Holidays are over and the long winter hangs around for a few months... but when it's spring Time there is no better way to put a smile on your face than watching Easter Beagle Charlie Brown. Every Good Friday before Easter my family watches this delightful show and colors eggs. Not to mention... it will six months until you can watch the Great Pumpkin, so watch Marci scramble the Easter Eggs, Snoopy Dance with bunnies, and Woodstock decorate his fancy new Bird house.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD! January 14, 2003
For those of you who are curious, this will also include the bonus feature, "It's Arbor Day, Charlie Brown." Currently, it looks like they're sticking with the holiday themes. I can't wait to see some of the other terrific specials get their due. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute March 28, 2005
The peanuts gang are up to their usual mischief in preparation for Easter Sunday, but no one seems to be listening to Linus. He swears that the Easter Beagle will come and make the celebrations complete. Typically no one listens to him, he is little bit 'Ralph Wiggum' remember.

Though Snoopy ends up being that very Beagle, he's far too busy trying to help out Woodstock. The poor little bird is freezing in his cruddy little nest full of cold water. So Snoopy goes off to the mall (already advertising Xmas goodies!) to buy him a bird house. With hilarious results.

After much hijinks and endless trips to the mall for eggs (Marcie keeps smashing them as she doesn't know how to do egg-painting) Snoopy saves the day and proves Linus right after all. Sigh! They don't make 'em like this anymore. I'll tale Snoopy over Spongebob any day.

I have not seen It's Arbor Fay, Charlie Brown so I cannot review it yet.

The DVD is in 1.33:1 full frame, as drawn, with Dolby Mono sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY UNDERRATED PEANUTS SPECIAL March 15, 2005
Does this one still even pop up on TV? If not it should because after the classic Christmas and Halloween Peanuts specials this one is the next based. Made in 1974 it has every bit of the charm and laughs as those other specials and it's too bad that it doesn't get more notoriety. They really do not make them like this anymore.

This special is much like "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" in that we again have the ever hopeful Linus, trying to convince the rest of the gang that the Easter Beagle will arrive on Easter Morning to give eggs the kids. None of the gang are buying it however and they are all off having their own problems. Peppermint Patty is trying to teach Marcie to color eggs, much to Patty's frustration, Sally has to get some new shoes at the mall, Snoopy wants to get a new bird cage for Woodstock, and Charlie Brown is discouraged to see the stores already advertising for Christmas at Easter time.

This DVD comes with a bonus Peanuts special, "It's Arbor Day, Charlie Brown". I guess they were pretty much scraping the bottom of the barrel when they made this one in 1976. It's not bad mind you, but who celebrates Arbor Day? While researching a report on Arbor Day, Sally enlists the gang to turn Charlie Brown's ball field into a garden and orchard, complete with a tree on the pitcher's mound and scarecrow in the outfield.

Good Peanuts fun!
