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.
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.
The scene in which the mall already has Christmas decorations fits perfectly with the over-commercialization of Christmas addressed in "A Charlie Brown Christmas." And this was 1974 before department stores refused to say Merry Christmas.
There isn't much mention of Jesus Christ that I recall considering Linus' recitation during the Christmas special. Easter is the celebration of the Resurrection. That said, this is still a classic.
