Another Review From The Peanut Gallery
on 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:
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.
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. Everyone can remember the sight of Snoopy gleefully running about Easter morning passing out colored eggs as the Easter Beagle.
Also contained on Disc 2 is an all new featurette, Woodstock: Creating Snoopy's Sidekick. These specials are being presented remastered in their original Full Frame video format with English Mono Audio. Other audio soundtrack options will include Spanish, Portugese and Japanese. Subtitles will be available in English, Spanish, French, Portugese, Japanese and Thai.
These specials are all classics and are perfect for parents looking for suitable programming for their children or for adults who grew up watching them and want a chance to reminisce on past days and simpler times. I can't wait to own them in this DVD set and am certainly excited to collect the rest of the 70's era Peanut specials in Volume 2 (which should collect 6 more specials from Be My Valentine Charlie Brown to You're The Greatest, Charlie Brown). Thanks For Your Time.
