Product Description

You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown: Deluxe Edition

Happiness is…. You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown! Based on the award-winning Broadway musical, this unforgettable Peanuts television special from producers Lee Mendelson and Bill Melendez has been remastered and is now available to download. Featuring music and lyrics from Clark Gesner, catch the gang created by Charles M. Schulz singing in the glee club, gazing at stars (or are they blinking satellites?), trying to write a book report that's at least 100 words and sympathize with Snoopy as he languishes away waiting for his supper to be served. It's Peanuts just the way you love them, set to songs that will surely become favorites. You won't want to miss a moment - or a note! Featurette: Explore the 20-year journey of the Clark Gesner album that evolved into an off-Broadway hit before becoming this animated TV special.

I fell in love with"You're A Good Man Charlie Brown!" when the local theatre did the stage version. I found out soon after that there was an animated version on video. The show is amazing. With cute and funny songs like "The Kite" and "The Book Report," to touching and sweet songs like "The Baseball Game" and "Happiness," "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown!" should have a place in everyone's heart.

I love this musical, so naturally getting this DVD was a no brainer. While the content is taken from the Broadway musical, the animation and the voices are in keeping with the Peanuts TV specials and movies. Translation? They've got little kids and adequate animation.

But that's not a huge problem for me because I love what is here. The emphasis seems to be on the songs with only a little bit of dialogue between them. But since the musical is a collection of vignettes and not a complete story, that certainly works.

And I love some of the songs here. "T-E-A-M" is funny and sad. "Book Report," which finds the gang attempting to write a report on Peter Rabbit, and "Glee Club," which presents a hilarious but not necessarily harmonious take on "Home on the Range" provide the best laughs.

With the emphasis being on the songs, many of the other bits get cut or left out. There is one section that deals with Valentine's Day. And they've got Charlie Brown's classic monologue about lunch time. But I do wonder why they left out Snoopy's fight with the Red Barron.

Speaking of Snoopy, he does get a voice here. No, he doesn't talk to the kids, but he does sing his two classics from the show, "Snoopy" and "Suppertime."

The DVD only contains this 48 minute special. Seems like they could have put something else on here. The 15 minute documentary on the musical and how it became a special is a little too short and scattered to truly tell us much, but there are a few interesting nuggets in there.

Personally, I would love to get a live action version of the show, preferably from after the revival so we can get my favorite song. But until that happens, this will certainly entertain.

This video is cute. I have a record from the 60's with the show. One or two of the main songs seem to be missing but the animation is cute. My daughter loves it and she is 5.

You're a Good Man Charlie Brown is the Peanuts gang at their best! This wonderful animated special is full of wonderful tunes from the Broadway show! It's worth it just for Snoopy's Suppertime number!

Some musicals just stick with you. Of all the shows I've seen, performed in, read about, or lectured about, there are few that hold the emotional pull of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. I'm sure part of it is because of my affection for the Peanuts comic strip itself, but I also love the sweet, tuneful simplicity of Clark Gesner's songs, and the wry wit of the Charles Schulz vignettes that form the spine of the show. The 1999 Broadway revival of You're a Good Man Charlie Brown left me cold, mostly because it was trying to jazz things up and expand the show, and seemed to lose sight of what made the show appealing in the first place.

Now we have the 1985 animated special on DVD. I remember watching it when it first aired and being less than impressed, but when I popped in the DVD upon its arrival, I was thoroughly delighted. The special has the polished look and feel of the 1970s Charlie Brown specials, as opposed to some of the later specials that seemed a bit slapdash.

Because it needed to fit into an hour-long TV slot, the show has been cut down quite a bit, removing some rather fun numbers, such as Linus's "My Blanket and Me" and Snoopy's "The Red Baron." But what's left is charming, and very engagingly animated. I actually laughed out loud at some of the clever bits. There was something about seeing the actual Snoopy, as opposed to an adult in a white turtle neck, that made his parts a bit more effective. And including Woodstock, particularly during the song "Snoopy," was an inspired touch.

I thought that the video was just wonderful. All of the songs touch your heart and the characters and ones that everyone has grown up with. I think that the movie is great because it teaches kids to accept someone who might be different and also teaches that friendship is something that everyone needs. I would recommend this video to anyone who has a grown child or any one who wants to be a child again. P.S. The live stage show of "You're A Good Man Charlie Brown", is coming into Phoenix, Arizona for a weekend run. The show is going to be a the Herberger Theater in downtown Phoenix, from Feb. 25th throught the 28th. Tickets are not that expensive either. If you liked the movie, as much as I did, you are going to love the show. Plus the cast meets with the audience afterwards. It really brings the show to life for everyone.

When I was little I loved watching Your a good man Charlie Brown. I loved listening to the music like "The Kite" Which I learned in 4th grade. All my friends and I did was sing songs from "charlie brown." Whenever you dont feel good about yourself you can refer to Charlie the boy who was most of the time miserable and who had a huge crush on the red hair girl. Sometimes if you think that a boy/girl doen't like you, you can see poor Charlie who know one likes him. HE IS A WONDERFUL CHARACTER LOL
