Charles Schulz's award-winning "Peanuts" comics and animated television specials are perennial favorites of adults and children alike. What is it that makes a story about a morose young boy struggling with low self-esteem and social ineptness so timelessly appealing? Perhaps it's the universality of his struggle or Schulz's social commentary that sometimes proved years ahead of its time--or maybe "Peanuts" is just plain great animated entertainment. Regardless of why "Peanuts" remains so popular today, the 1960s gave birth to current classics A Charlie Brown Christmas and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown as well as four other works, with each network debut proving a highly anticipated television event. This two-disc compilation features all six 1960s specials, remastered with strikingly bright colors and crisp, clear pictures for a viewing experience that's simply great.

Probably the best-known Peanuts special, the Emmy-award-winning A Charlie Brown Christmas follows a despondent Charlie Brown through the Christmas season as he tries to get involved and figure out the true meaning of Christmas. The Emmy-nominated It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown chronicles Charlie Brown's emotional ups and downs as he goes trick-or-treating, attends a Halloween party, and ponders his friend Linus's unfailing belief in the existence of the Great Pumpkin. The lesser-known, but highly engaging special Charlie Brown's All-Stars finds Charlie Brown's losing baseball team excited about a sponsorship offer that will provide them with uniforms and entrance into a real league. Problem is, manager Charlie Brown would be forced to cut Snoopy and the girls from the team in order to comply with league rules--a step he's just not willing to take. You're in Love, Charlie Brown finds Charlie Brown infatuated with the Little Red-Haired Girl and frustrated with his inability to overcome his shyness and speak to her. He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown features an incorrigible Snoopy who, rather than returning to the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm for a refresher course in obedience, moves in with Peppermint Patty only to find himself overworked and unhappy. While Snoopy is gone, Charlie Brown and the gang realize just how important a role Snoopy plays in their daily lives. It Was a Short Summer is Charlie Brown's reflection on what he did at camp over summer vacation. A 38-minute bonus feature about ""Linus and Lucy"" composer Vince Guaraldi delves into his music and philosophy, detailing the evolution of his music over the years and the integral part that it played in the "Peanuts" television specials. Whether reliving childhood memories or creating a whole new set with children or grandchildren, this classic "Peanuts" collection is perfect for sharing. --Tami Horiuchi

This 2-disc set is going to be released on July 7th, 2009. It contains the classic heartwarming Charlie Brown/Peanuts Specials that aired from 1965-1969, which are all six specials that aired in the sixties. Those specials are:

A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
The perennial Christmas classic about the down on his luck Charlie Brown and his adorably pathetic Christmas Tree. This is where the Peanuts Specials all began.

Charlie Brown's All-Stars (1966)
It's ball season and Charlie Brown faces a moral dilemma when he can get his team new uniforms and a shot at being part of an official league if he is willing to kick Lucy, Violet, Patty, Frieda and Snoopy off the team.

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966)
Another perennial classic about poor Charlie Brown getting more trick's than treat's and ever optimistic Linus spending the night in a humble pumpkin patch. He believes in the Great Pumpkin.

You're In Love, Charlie Brown (1967)
Charlie Brown just wants the courage to meet his crush, the little red haired girl. When Linus and Peppermint Patty try to help things only get worse for good old Chuck.

He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown (1968)
Snoopy is supposed to return to Daisy Hill Puppy Farm for obedience training but winds up at the house of Peppermint Patty instead. Will Charlie Brown get his dog pal to come back home?

It Was A Short Summer Charlie Brown (1969)
At summer camp the boys are losing everything to the girls and putting up with poor conditions. Will the boys be able to prove themselves as winner's before the end of the summer? Maybe some help from the Masked Marvel (aka Snoopy) can do the trick.

Five of these six specials were either Emmy nominated or winning.

Getting right down to business: You watch two of these every year for certain-- Charlie Brown Christmas and Great Pumpkin, you know them, you love them, and your VHS copy is worn out beyond belief. That alone is reason to get the 1960s Collection, but what you don't know may be even more compelling...

"He's Your Dog" and "Short Summer" are new to DVD but well worth the wait. If you've seen them before, you'll love watching them again (what can I say, they're timeless!) and you'll be loaning it out or inviting your cousins/nieces/nephews/grandkids over to watch them.

Filled with life lessons, a classic humor that we all pay tribute to in one way or another and the Peanuts gang, this is an essential collection.

This DVD is packed with 6 classic animation specials from the 1960's. Even though I was not around when these aired, I have fond memories of each and everyone of theses specials as a kid.

Pro's
Classic Peanuts!!!

Con's
Disc 1 claims to have 4 features but only has 3. The 4th feature is actually on the 2nd disc. So it boils down to 3 features per disc.

Now only if they would release more collections which would include:
Bon Voyage Charlie Brown
This is America Charlie Brown
Race for Your Life Charlie Brown and many more...

Verified Purchase
These shows are the absolute best of the Peanuts TV specials - this and the movie A BOY NAMED CHARLIE BROWN (1969) are all you need.

Everything has a Golden Period and the 60's was it for Peanuts. There was an almost hypnotic quality to these early specials - they take their time, are more character-oriented than plot-oriented, and the humor is droll and intelligent. This philosophical bent is what makes them the perfect video equivalent of the classic comic strip, and you can feel the care and significant thought put into every moment - from Vince Guaraldi's iconic jazz to the wonderful, natural voices of the original child actors, who were never to be matched in later versions.

A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS and IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN are well known and loved, deservedly so, but it may be, unless you're old like me, you haven't seen YOU'RE IN LOVE, HE'S YOUR DOG, IT WAS A SHORT SUMMER, or ALL STARS. I grew up on them, even had the corresponding books. My personal favorite would be the Snoopy-centric DOG. But love of the little redhaired girl, the whole gang at camp and Charlie Brown's baseball woes make for clever, funny, poignant stories that are all surprisingly timeless even 40 years later.

It's true, it would have been nice if they had given us more special features - including the documentaries from earlier editions, but these are the absolute cream of the crop, the best Peanuts you're going to find. You can skip the 70's and 80's, it was never the same again...

But don't hesitate for a second, buy this one!

Some things, though they become dated and quaint, still remain classic and timeless. Charles Schultz's Peanuts TV specials are no exception to this. Every year I look forward to one of the major television networks airing the Peanuts holiday specials, especially A Charlie Brown Christmas and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

Recently, Warner Brothers has released a remastered collection of the 1960's specials on a two-disc set. This set contains six half-hour specials, each disc containing three (although the box erroneously indicates that there are four on the first disc and two on the second disc). Also included in this set is a featurette profiling the composer of the Peanuts music, including the famed "Linus and Lucy" track, Vince Guaraldi.

The specials are included in chronological order, and the last two have never before been released on DVD. Here are the specials included:

A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
The classic, beloved story of the Peanuts gang's Christmas pageant and Charlie Brown's quest to rediscover the true meaning of Christmas.

Charlie Brown's All-Stars (1966)
Charlie Brown and his hapless baseball team can't catch a break on the diamond. Ever the shrewd manager, Charlie Brown believes new uniforms and entry into a real league will provide the inspiration his team needs to get over the hump. However, there's a catch: he must get rid of the girls on the team, as well as Snoopy. How will he handle such a conundrum?

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966)
Another beloved Peanuts holiday special. This time it's Halloween and time for the gang to go trick-or-treating. The dumb luck of Charlie Brown, however, will bring him more tricks than treats.
