Product Description

You're A Good Sport, Charlie Brown: Deluxe Edition

The story finds Charlie Brown, the famous sports failure, competing against Peppermint Patty and the Masked Marvel (alias Snoopy) in a charity motocross race.

]]>

Amazon.com

A 1975 Emmy award-winning children's special about sportsmanship and trying one's best, You're a Good Sport, Charlie Brown showcases Charlie Brown's introduction to the sport of Motocross and his surprising success in the sport. Charlie Brown and the gang have always been sports enthusiasts, but generally the baseball field is their field of choice. When Peppermint Patty invites "Chuck" to participate in a Motocross race for charity, Charlie Brown and Linus, as well as the mysterious Masked Marvel (Snoopy), become intrigued with dirt biking and enter the race. Slow and steady perseverance is the key to success for Charlie Brown, who at last finds a sport in which he can excel. This remastered edition looks and sounds great and also includes the 1979 television special You're the Greatest, Charlie Brown in which Charlie Brown's commitment to the gang and willingness to try something new shines when he enters the decathlon event at the Junior Olympics. The 11-minute bonus featurette "Dust Yourself Off and Pick Yourself Up, Charlie Brown" features Charles Schulz's son Craig describing his love of Motocross racing and recounting how a few days spent in the stands inspired his father to write about the sport in his weekly cartoon strip. This lesser-known Charlie Brown special is definitely a winner worth adding to your Peanuts collection. (Ages 2 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

"You're A Good Sport, Charlie Brown" is the seventh in the Peanuts series, to get the Remastered Special Edition treatment, since Warner Brothers began with "Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown" in 2008. In this release, both the picture and the audio have been remastered, and look and sound like never before!

This lesser known Peanuts special, tells the story of Charlie Brown's hopes to win the motorcross race, despite being "Unlucky Number 13". It's a great story for adults and children alike, which lends virtue to not only winning, but to playing as a good sport, in the process. It's perfect for the adult who's feeling nostalgic, or as an introduction to good sportsmanship, to your little ones!

The DVD includes a bonus episode, "You're the Greatest, Charlie Brown", which centers about Charlie Brown's hopes to win a decathlon, with the help of Snoopy & the gang. It also includes the all-new featurette, "Dust Yourself Off & Pick Yourself Up, Charlie Brown", the story of Charles Schultze's son Craig, who served as the inspiration behind "You're A Good Sport, Charlie Brown".

It's another great Peanuts release, and hopefully a sign that more Charlie Brown releases are headed our way!

YOU'RE A GOOD SPORT, CHARLIE BROWN was a Peanuts special that first aired on television in 1975. Charles Schulz published original "Peanuts" strips for fifty years, from 1950-2000. YOU'RE A GOOD SPORT, CHARLE BROWN aired in what is now the halfway point of the original strips publication. It's not as well known as some of the other Peanuts specials that were broadcast, but is rather memorable because it features Charlie Brown winning at something instead of losing.

The main plot follows Charlie, Snoopy (as the Masked Marvel), and Peppermint Patty as they compete in a motocross race (a sport that was fairly new at the time the special first aired). Unlike Patty who has a new bike, or the Masked Marvel who has the best bike around at the time, Charlie Brown can only afford the cheapest bike the store sells. There is no shine or gloss to his bike and it doesn't rev but puts. Not only that, but Charlie Brown's bike is entered into the competition as #13, supposedly the unluckiest of all numbers. Still, Charlie Brown is a determined fellow and like the tortoise who beat the hair, sometimes slow and steady does when the race. Besides seeing what a good sport Charlie Brown, the special is also notable because of the make-shift pumpkin helmet Linus makes after Charlie is in an accident. The motocross race is preceded by a scene with Snoopy playing tennis and followed by the Peanuts gang playing baseball. YOU'RE A GOOD SPORT, CHARLIE BROWN won an Emmy for Outstanding Children's Special.

Also included on this the special, YOU'RE THE GREATEST, CHARLIE BROWN. In this special Charlie is recruited to represent his school by competing in the decathlon for the Junior Olympics. Peppermint Patty trains Chuck in all ten events.

First, I have to give credit to Warner Brothers for doing an incredible job on the remastering. The cartoons look as good if not better than they did when they first aired.

Second, I feel quite lucky to have stumbled on this as it was my favorite Peanuts story as a kid. I used to own this in book form and always thought it was a fun story. There aren't many slow moments and, as someone else mentions, Charlie Brown finally gets to win one... even if the prize wasn't quite as spectacular as he might have hoped. The supporting characters are really at their best and most humorous. I LOVE the Marcie 'Howard Cosell' interview spoof and Linus's rant about the big kids always hogging the court.

I agree with another reviewer that the Wizard of Oz opening was unexpected and can certainly trouble some kids. I was worried mine might freak out but lucked out- she was interested in who the four characters were. Other than that I think this is a great DVD to add to your children's or nostalgic adult's collection.

If you want a good laugh watch this dvd. Charlie Brown is a good child, but too trusting especially to Lucy with the kicking of the football. He joins the track team to help his school possibly win the track meet by entering the decathalon and ends up disappointing himself and his school when he was told he might win the decathalon and his head gets too big and he does not pay attention to where his going when he is running in the final track event, buy this dvd, it's a keeper.

Yippee, yippee....it's about time and although I still have this classic on VHS, I will still buy the DVD....as I'm sure it has been remastered to perfection. Aside from the wonderful characters and story line, I love the music the best.

This is one of my favorite Charlie Brown specials that were on t.v. when I was a kid. Charlie Brown gets talked into joining the motorcross that includes riders Peppermint Patty and Snoopy as the Masked Marvel. It brought back a lot of memories and also contains another great bonus special called "You're the Greatest Charlie Brown!". If you liked the Charlie Brown specials as a kid, you'll love these.
