A Charlie Brown Christmas Deluxe Edition (DVD)
Christmastime is here. Happiness and cheer. And for Peanuts fans everywhere, it just wouldn’t be Christmas without this classic holiday delight. Christmas lights may be twinkling red and green, but Charlie Brown has the Yuletide blues. To get in the holiday spirit, he takes Lucy’s advice and directs the Christmas play. And what’s a Christmas play without a Christmas tree? But everyone makes fun of the short, spindly nevergreen Charlie Brown brings back – until the real meaning of Christmas works its magic once again in this Remastered Deluxe Edition with Improved Picture and Audio.]]>
The 2008 remastered DVD has two main extras: the similarly themed 1991 special It's Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown, and a new documentary "A Christmas Miracle: The Making of A Charlie Brown Christmas (2008, 16 minutes), with interviews of Lee Mendelson, Bill Melendez, Jeannie Schulz, and others discussing the creation of the special, the adoption of Vince Guaraldi's music, the use of children's voices, and the network's negative reaction to the show. --David Horiuchi

Paramount release (first DVD release of CB Xmas, released in Y2K):
-No special features whatsoever
-Poor sound quality
-No other language audio tracks, other than English
Warner Bros. release (2nd release, released in 2008):
-Has a making of documentary
-Various language tracks
-Better sound quality
All in all, the WB release wins over that of Paramount's. This re-release is also cheaper as far as pricing is concerned, and I will definitely buy more Peanuts specials on DVD and Blu-Ray from Warner Bros. in the future!
My edition went missing in a house move so I reordered this copy from Amazon. I can't say that I noticed the "remastered deluxe" aspects of the DVD, but the movie itself stands the test of time well and Amazon had a better price on the DVD than I had seen elsewhere.
I just think it's a cute, straightforward, and humorous take on the Christmas season. It brings all our favorite Peanuts characters out at their best, and it makes light of the stress and struggle that we all seem to feel a little of a Christmas - then, brings it home with the most honest recognition of what Christmas is all about. How about that for a 26 minute run-time animated movie?!
This is a great edition of the movie as well - excellent picture quality, excellent sound quality (VINCE GUARALDI IS AWESOME!!!) - there is a bonus feature movie on the DVD as well but I didn't even get to it, nor did I get to any of the other special features, but I'm pretty sure there are quite a few on this DVD.
Also, I bought direct from Amazon, and I have to give yet another shout-out to the prices and especially the shipping. If you are an Amazon Prime member: they offered me free overnight shipping OR free two day shipping + and Amazon Instant Movie credit instead. I took the 2-day shipping plus credit and I STILL got my movies the next day! I hope they keep offering that.
