The video quality of these specials on Blu-ray is, as was the case with the release of Charlie Brown Christmas last year, simply the best these specials have ever looked on home video, period. That would make them an instant purchase, if only...

Warner Home Video remastered the audio of all these specials with a very cheesy faux 5.1 surround, giving the audio a hokey, echo-filled sound that just sounds very, very wrong. They sound as if they were processed through a "faux surround" mode found on the cheapest surround processor available.

Worse, because there is an echo added to the tracks, even if your processor or TV has a "mono" mode you CANNOT restore the audio to the original mono soundtrack most of us have heard for years, meaning that if you buy these for any kind of decent experience you need to WATCH the Blu-ray but sync up the DVD release for the AUDIO.

Warner Home Video could have EASILY included the original mono soundtracks as well, but decided that hokey fake surround would be a better choice, so ironically, sound quality-wise the mono Spanish audio tracks are BETTER.

As most of the reviews concentrate on the VIDEO quality of these releases, you likely would never know until you placed these discs in your player, hit play and wondered just what went wrong with the sound.

I can't say to stay away - I'll keep mine for the video quality and because I doubt I could get a decent price for these on the second-hand market - but be warned that if you are expecting that sound you've heard from years of TV runs or on the DVDs, you'll be SORELY disappointed.

Update: Note the 2011 release of this collection features the same horrid 5.1 DD mix as the earlier release. Stay away if you like the audio until WB gives us the original English 1.0 track back...

I purchased this set through amazon and received it today (October 7th, 2010). Prior to purchasing this set, I also owned the standard peanuts holiday dvd set that was released a few years ago. I purchased the blu-ray dvd set because I thought they would be a better quality than the former. Honestly, I do not see any difference in the quality of the blu-ray dvds in comparison to the standard dvd set. My blu-ray player has an upconverter and so the standard dvds are upconverted to a better quality. I reviewed both sets (blu-ray and standard) and honestly could not tell a difference between the two (in terms of quality). So, for those who own the standard dvd set and question whether it is worth the money upgrading to blu-ray, if I were to offer any advice, it would be to save your money...that is unless you're into collecting blu-ray dvds and feel the need to obtain this set for its special features.

To be fair, I found that the special features make up for some of the lack in quality of the blu-ray dvds. It is interesting to learn about the histoy of each holiday specials and how the Christmas special was almost never produced. For the special features and the amount I paid for this set ($34.99), I didn't feel too bad about the purchase. I am disappointed in the quality but found that the special features make up for some of that disappointment.

Again, the quality of the dvds are not as great as I had hoped, but the special features are worth the consideration.

This is the ultimate collection for those of us that grew up in the 60's and 70's. For me it isn't the holidays without the peanuts and this collection gives us those great classics in stunning blu-ray. The bonus features are a nice addition, giving us 3 more episodes of the gang and who doesn't like more peanuts. I would have liked a complete holiday collection that included the easter beagle, be my valentine charlie brown and happy new year charlie brown though. Maybe a future collections of those is coming. Overall though this is a great set to walk down memory lane with and to share with your kids.

If you love you some Charlie Brown this is one heck of a deal. With A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS and IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN alone this holiday set is a bargain. A CHARLIE BROWN THANKSGIVING is a nice bonus but the special itself doesn't quite stand up to the level of the previous two. The actual bonus features accompanying the 3 DVDs in this set are enjoyable and informative, but everything really rides on the two main features as far as true value is concerned. All of the specials look and sound great.

As prices for these DVDs tend to fluctuate, when I purchased this item it was at roughly $20. The individual specials tend to sell right around $15 to $18 a pop, so if you can snag this collection when it's around the price I got it for you should be very satisfied.

I would recommend this set to people that love these old classics. The colors are more vibrant on the Blu Ray discs and its nice to have all the holiday specials in one easy pack.

The only drawback I would say to this set is that for the money, you really don't get a lot of content. Each special is roughly a half our long. You get a bonus episode on each disc but, once again, price could seem a bit steep if you don't know what you are getting.

I give it a 4 out of 5 for the content factor. The rest is timeless holiday fun!

I'm not sure about a Lucy skating special, but there was a special about Peppermint Patty as a figure skater ... it's called "She's a Good Skate, Charlie Brown". Other than that, the only Lucy skating I can remember is from the Christmas one.

The bonus episode here is just about Snoopy... Read More
