I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown: Deluxe Edition
Christmas goes to the dogs in this delightful holiday charmer! Have you ever felt like “happiness is a warm puppy?” Rerun Van Pelt sure does. As the youngest sibling, Rerun finds it hard to pry older brother Linus away from his security blanket and almost impossible to relate to crabby older sister Lucy. All Rerun wants for Christmas is his very own dog. But Rerun’s mom doesn’t think he’s ready and Charlie Brown won’t part with Snoopy. So, when Snoopy’s brother Spike visits, Rerun is determined to adopt him. But is he really ready for Spike – who’s part beagle and part disaster? Furry fun and friendship are unleashed in this yuletide Peanuts perennial. Also included is another holiday tale – Happy New Year, Charlie Brown – where Charlie Brown must complete a book report on War and Peace over the holiday break. True to form, there is no peace on earth for the constantly distracted Charlie Brown!]]>
- Bonus special: Happy New Year, Charlie Brown

The main theme of the show, however, is Rerun wants a dog, but his mother won't let him have one. Lucy also breaks the news to him that if mom doesn't want something, Santa wouldn't dare bring it. Thus, Rerun resorts to trying to "borrow" Snoopy whenever he can, and eventually adopting Snoopy's brother Spike for a short while. The rest of the gang is involved in typical Peanuts activity, such as writing letters to Santa and dealing with Lucy's many moods. The scenery outside is beautiful and oh so colorful, with the snow and the setting sun. The inside of the homes are lushly colored, too, with lots of blues and purples. It reminded me of being a child and noticing all the colorful scenes in the earlier Peanuts specials.
P.S. Almost forgot--Peanuts: Happy New Year Charlie Brown [VHS]" is shown after the Christmas special. I have that VHS tape somewhere. That's one of the classic Charlie Brown stories where he is looking forward to the winter break, only to find out he has to read War and Peace (Vintage Classics) over the holidays and do a report on it. Charlie Brown is priceless as he struggles to read the huge book and carry it with him wherever he goes, so he won't miss out on all the New Year fun.
