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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music, Great Fun January 28, 2010
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice Little Disc February 3, 2011
Format:DVD
As long as you know what you're getting, you'll get a pleasant disc. We get the entire hour-long "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" TV special from 1987. It was a nice adaptation, but the kid's singing voices get annoying. It would have been a great chance to get "Snoopy: The Musical" on here, but we get the same amount of content as all discs. The bonus feature documentary was enjoyable also.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Peanuts special based on the Broadway musical October 24, 2010
Format:DVD
You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a Peanuts special that was released in 1985 that's based on a Broadway musical of the same name. Since it's based on a musical, there's a lot of songs that accompany vignettes, rather than being a special with one storyline. There are some classic songs in this production, such as "Book Report" and "Happiness." While this may not be a "typical" Peanuts special, it's an enjoyable viewing, especially if you enjoy musicals.

This DVD includes a remastered version of the special, as well as a documentary titled, "Animating a Charlie Brown Musical." The documentary goes throug the 20-year history of the Clark Gesner album that evolved into an off-Broadway hit that became the basis for this special. The documentary was interesting to watch, and I learned a bit about this special from watching it. Admittedly, the documentary won't have much appeal for any kids watching this DVD, but it's a nice bonus for the adults who watch it.

I wrote this review after watching a copy of this DVD that my husband and I purchased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good movie July 25, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I remember years ago when I played Lucy in this wonderful play. This is more of a Best Of.. then then the full play with the few changes in it (Patty or example is now played by Sally, more popular character. Patty was lesser known and she really disappeared when this movie had been made. (Contrary to popular belief Peppermint Patty is NOT Patty.) Characters like Peppermint Patty and Marcie do play camos in this movie but really they were not even invented (neither was Sally) when the play version was first done. This is a good collector thing of Peanuts to have in your collection one great thing never seen in any of the other specials Snoppy talks. (or thinks since he doesn't really TALK)
