Product Description

Peanuts: 1970's Collection

Generations have grown up with the Peanuts gang in print and onscreen, but in the 1970s, television specials like A Charlie Brown Christmas and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown were only a few years old. Their incredible popularity fueled Charles Schulz to create a flurry of new Peanuts TV specials about everything from election day to holidays like Thanksgiving and Easter. While Charlie Brown figures prominently in each special, he's not always the primary focus; in this remastered, six-show compilation, Schroeder, Sally, Snoopy, and Woodstock each get a chance to shine. In the never-before-seen-on-DVD "Play It Again, Charlie Brown," Schroeder is completely obsessed with Beethoven, and no amount of scheming or flattery on Lucy's part can get Schroeder's attention until she provides him with an opportunity to make his stage debut. Unfortunately, overlooked details derail the concert and any chance of Lucy making a good impression on Schroeder. When the polls show that Charlie Brown has absolutely no chance of being elected student body president at his school in "You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown," Lucy convinces Linus to step up to the challenge. Joe Cool makes an appearance in support of Linus's campaign, but as in most politics, Linus's big plans for the presidency lead to little action. Anxiety over school consumes Sally, Peppermint Patty, and Charlie Brown in "There's No Time for Love, Charlie Brown," and a field trip gone wrong does nothing to lessen their discomfort.

"A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" is probably the best-known special in this compilation and finds the wishy-washy Charlie Brown unexpectedly hosting a Thanksgiving dinner for all his friends. Relying on Snoopy and Woodstock to set up a table in the backyard and prepare an unorthodox meal of popcorn and toast, Charlie Brown somehow manages to pull off a Thanksgiving celebration that honors the true spirit of the holiday. Another first on DVD, "It's a Mystery, Charlie Brown" is the delightful story of Snoopy's and Woodstock's search, à la Sherlock Holmes, for Woodstock's missing nest, and "It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown" finds Marci mangling the tradition of dying eggs and Linus eagerly anticipating the appearance of the Easter Beagle. The 12-minute bonus special about the creation of Snoopy's sidekick, Woodstock, sheds light on how Snoopy's nemesis was created in the 1960s and how the cute little bird quickly evolved into Snoopy's valued companion and friend. Relive your childhood with this wonderful Peanuts collection and be sure to share these timeless shows with the next generation. (Ages 2 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Review From The Peanut Gallery August 21, 2009
Peanuts specials are timeless classics with wonderful moral lessons and clean/clever humor that you can't find presented the same way nowadays. The peanuts will always have a more adult sense of awareness but still never lose their innocence. This 1970's Volume 1 Collection is being released October 20th and will contain the following remastered six specials, two of which have never seen DVD before:

-Disc 1-
Play It Again, Charlie Brown (Aired: 3/28/1971)
In her continuing attempts to get Schroeder's attention Lucy arranges for him to play at the PTA Program. Unfortunately they don't want to hear Schroeder's choice of Beethoven.

You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown (Aired: 10/29/1972)
Linus is running in the school election but another speech about The Great Pumpkin may ruin his chances.

There's No Time For Love, Charlie Brown (Aired: 3/11/1973)
A favorite of mine where a school field trip finds Charlie Brown, Linus, Peppermint Patty and Marcy mistaking a supermarket for an art museum. At the same time Charlie Brown deals with disappointment.

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (Aired: 11/20/1973)
Somehow good ol' Chuck winds up hosting Thanksgiving Dinner for the rest of the gang after Peppermint Patty invites herself over. With help from Snoopy and woodstock Charlie Brown might make enough popcorn and buttered toast for all.

-Disc 2-
It's A Mystery, Charlie Brown (Aired: 2/1/1974)
Snoopy tries to find Woodstock's missing nest. Meanwhile Sally worries about a science project.

It's The Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown (Aired: 4/9/1974)
The perennial classic in which all are dying eggs and celebrating Easter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleased to see WB releasing Peanuts in this way August 18, 2009
Hopefully, Warner does as good a job with this collection as they did with the Peanuts 1960's [sic] collection. The six specials on that collection look great. Sadly, they removed all the extra featurettes from the original releases, but included a very good new featurette. I hope that former trend doesn't continue. So this collection will have six specials as well. If current trends continue, can we expect to see the following?

1960s: (* denotes currently released single WB DVD release, ** denotes previously released Paramount DVD release)
A Charlie Brown Christmas*
Charlie Brown's All-Stars**
It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown*
You're In Love, Charlie Brown*
He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown
It Was a Short Summer, Charlie Brown

1970s, vol. 1:
Play it Again, Charlie Brown
You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown*
There's No Time for Love, Charlie Brown**
A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving*
It's a Mystery, Charlie Brown
It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown*

1970s, vol. 2: (conjecture)
Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown*
You're a Good Sport, Charlie Brown*
It's Arbor Day, Charlie Brown*
It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown*
What a Nightmare, Charlie Brown
You're the Greatest, Charlie Brown*

1980s, vol. 1: (conjecture)
She's a Good Skate, Charlie Brown
Life is a Circus, Charlie Brown
It's Magic, Charlie Brown*
Someday You'll Find Her, Charlie Brown**
A Charlie Brown Celebration (this is a one hour program--wonder how they'll handle that?)

1980s, vol. 2: (conjecture)
Is This Goodbye, Charlie Brown?

By C. Hall
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a nice set of episodes if you don't already have most of them. I have the first 3 volumes (60's, 70's 1, 70's 2) and almost all the individual releases trying to get every available episode. I really don't like it when the DVD companies release complete seasons/volumes and then just stop releasing. I assume we won't see them continue into the 80's or it would have been out/announced by now being a year since this release and that we only went six months in between the other.

Now I'm stuck with duplicates of almost all these episodes. A. From buying them previously, and B. now from starting to purchase more individual discs since I've realized they won't be releasing the rest in a comprehensive format anymore.

Just all. Plus the fact that the Peanuts Specials have been liscenced to 2 different companies for release, there are 2 versions of most specials out there and alot of them carry different "bonus" episodes, so it can be tricky to keep track of it.

Just do some research before you buy if your just starting out collecting...not saying there's anything wrong with this set, just beaware of what's out there to avoid buying the same episodes twice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peanuts transcends time... October 18, 2009
... but I guess you have to chop these sets into affordable sizes somehow. There really isn't a 60's Peanuts versus a 70's Peanuts. Peanuts will always exist in middle class mid-century America. It's exclusively a child's world that is presented, with all adult voices just coming across as a "mwah mwah mwah mwah" sounding drone, which is no doubt what you heard when adults spoke and you were a child and no doubt what your own children really hear when you speak.

Charlie Brown is a child everyman with dreams who exists in a world with a sometimes cruel pecking order. Lucy is always besting him, but Charlie Brown's own dog bests Lucy with nothing more than the threat of a slobbery kiss. The episodes teach lessons that in many cases, sadly, could not be taught today. For example, from the 60's specials, A Charlie Brown Christmas has Charlie Brown wondering what Christmas is all about. In the end, as an answer, Linus presents the simple Biblical tale of Jesus' birth. The moral comes across as "Christmas is not about getting more stuff", and in the 60's did not ignite a firestorm - as it would today no doubt - of people claiming they were offended by the "exclusivity of the message" so that you had to water down the message to the point where there is no message at all.

The only complaint I can offer is that we are getting only one extra feature in this set on the subject of Woodstock.

Is Snoopy Come Home on one of these collections?
These are only the TV specials, not the movies. Perhaps when all of the many Peanuts TV specials have been released in these collections, maybe they will offer a box set. I imagine the prospect for that won't be for several years at least.

I'm very happy with these collections, as they are a... Read More
