First half of the Peanuts episodes from the 1970s remastered in one set. Timed to release for the Holidays.]]>
"A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" is probably the best-known special in this compilation and finds the wishy-washy Charlie Brown unexpectedly hosting a Thanksgiving dinner for all his friends. Relying on Snoopy and Woodstock to set up a table in the backyard and prepare an unorthodox meal of popcorn and toast, Charlie Brown somehow manages to pull off a Thanksgiving celebration that honors the true spirit of the holiday. Another first on DVD, "It's a Mystery, Charlie Brown" is the delightful story of Snoopy's and Woodstock's search, à la Sherlock Holmes, for Woodstock's missing nest, and "It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown" finds Marci mangling the tradition of dying eggs and Linus eagerly anticipating the appearance of the Easter Beagle. The 12-minute bonus special about the creation of Snoopy's sidekick, Woodstock, sheds light on how Snoopy's nemesis was created in the 1960s and how the cute little bird quickly evolved into Snoopy's valued companion and friend. Relive your childhood with this wonderful Peanuts collection and be sure to share these timeless shows with the next generation. (Ages 2 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

Is This Goodbye, Charlie Brown?Read more ›
Now I'm stuck with duplicates of almost all these episodes. A. From buying them previously, and B. now from starting to purchase more individual discs since I've realized they won't be releasing the rest in a comprehensive format anymore.
Just beware...is all. Plus the fact that the Peanuts Specials have been liscenced to 2 different companies for release, there are 2 versions of most specials out there and alot of them carry different "bonus" episodes, so it can be tricky to keep track of it.
Just do some research before you buy if your just starting out collecting...not saying there's anything wrong with this set, just beaware of what's out there to avoid buying the same episodes twice.
Charlie Brown is a child everyman with dreams who exists in a world with a sometimes cruel pecking order. Lucy is always besting him, but Charlie Brown's own dog bests Lucy with nothing more than the threat of a slobbery kiss. The episodes teach lessons that in many cases, sadly, could not be taught today. For example, from the 60's specials, A Charlie Brown Christmas has Charlie Brown wondering what Christmas is all about. In the end, as an answer, Linus presents the simple Biblical tale of Jesus' birth. The moral comes across as "Christmas is not about getting more stuff", and in the 60's did not ignite a firestorm - as it would today no doubt - of people claiming they were offended by the "exclusivity of the message" so that you had to water down the message to the point where there is no message at all.
The only complaint I can offer is that we are getting only one extra feature in this set on the subject of Woodstock.
