Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown (Aired: 1/28/1975)
One of the last peanut specials to become a true perennial classic. With Valentine's Day approaching, the gang prepares in various ways. Charlie Brown waits at the mailbox, Linus buys a box of candy for his teacher (while Sally thinks it's for herself), Snoopy puts on a dramatic "Pawpet" show, and the school has a Valentine's Day party.
You're A Good Sport Charlie Brown (Aired: 10/28/1975)
Peppermint Patty gets good ol' Chuck to participate in a motocross race which has many challenges, including a mysterious Masked Marvel.
It's Arbor Day, Charlie Brown (Aired: 3/16/1976)
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. During the first game of the season against Peppermint Patty's team, the plants turn out to be an unexpected advantage. This lesser appreciated classic is still shown in most elemtary schools on Arbor day.
It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown (Aired: 10/24/1977)
Charlie Brown must escort the Little Red-Haired Girl to the homecoming dance, even though he has trouble kicking the ball during the homecoming football game.
What A Nightmare, Charlie Brown! (Aired: 2/23/1978)
Making it's DVD debut on this set.Read more ›
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 beware...is 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.
* Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown (the classic Valentine's Day special, chronicling Sally's affection for Linus being triumphed by his affections for his teacher)\
* You're a Good Sport, Charlie Brown
* It's Arbor Day, Charlie Brown (Vince Guaraldi's final score on a Peanuts special before his death)
* What a Nightmare, Charlie Brown (very odd special that contains only Charlie Brown and Snoopy, and about 3/4 of it is all Snoopy dreaming about being an arctic sled dog)
* It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown (the little red-haired girl is seen on-screen, and Charlie Brown gets to kiss her!)
* You're the Greatest, Charlie Brown
And a new featurette, "You're Groovy, Charlie Brown: A Look at Peanuts in the '70s." Isn't groovy more of an '80s word? Anyway, I recommend this!
"Nightmare" is the first real CLUNKER in the Peanuts specials. It is not really a Peanuts special as it only features Snoopy, with a guest appearance by Charlie Brown. None of the other kids are there. You basically have to sit through 20 minutes of Snoopy growling at sled-dogs who are trying to take things away from him. There is almost no dialog for the middle 20 minutes as the sled-dog owner is an adult who only talks with the sound of a muted trumpet. "Nightmare" would have worked as a brief throw-away segment of another special, much like the Snoopy v.s. Red Baron segment in "Its The Great Pumpkin". There is just not enough to carry an entire 25 minute special.
That said, I will point out the highlights.
"BE MY VALENTINE,CHARLIE BROWN (1975)" is a true "classic", you will never tire of seeing it. The only thing I find odd about it is that by this time we already know that Peppermint Patty has a crush on Charlie Brown, the very next special continues that one-way romance. So why does Charlie Brown not receive a Valentine Card from her? This story seems to happen as if it were earlier in the series.
"YOU'RE A GOOD SPORT, CHARLIE BROWN (1975)" introduces a new sport to the kids, motocross. This may be the first attempt to update the series for modern kids. It is still a lot of fun, but lacks that classic quality.
"ITS ARBOR DAY, CHARLIE BROWN (1976)" is sadly the last special to be scored by the great Vince Guaraldi, his compositions continue to carry you along in this humorous tale of baseball season colliding with tree-planting season.Read more ›
