A Charlie Brown Christmas (Books, Videos, Music, and Toys)


A Boy Named Charlie Brown (1969)



Available Format:
VHS

Things get off to a bumpy start. First, Charlie fails to make anything profound out of the cloud formations above, just a "ducky" and a "horsy." (But that's always been one of his best qualities--he calls them as he sees them.) Then he has a disastrous kite experience, followed by further humiliation on the baseball field (with its dandelion-covered pitching mound). Just when it seems as if things couldn't get much worse--they don't. Charlie finds something he's good at. Lucy, Violet, and the rest of the Peanuts gang doubt that his spelling bee winning streak can possibly last, but Charlie proves them all wrong and makes it to the national championships in New York City. His best pal, Linus, and free-spirited pooch, Snoopy, arrive shortly afterwards and provide their support. Granted, this rare, full-length feature film ends just as it began, with one more small humiliation, but it's Charlie's achievement that leaves the bigger impression. There are even a few lessons to be learned, but the tone is never preachy or condescending. Along the way, there are numerous pleasures to enjoy: Vince Guaraldi's classic Oscar-nominated score (featuring lyrics by Rod McKuen), the brightly hued, clean-lined animation (which occasionally erupts into impressionist and pop art flights of fancy), Schroeder's lovely rendition of Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata

Peanuts Holiday Collection

(A Charlie Brown Christmas / A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving / It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown)



Available Formats:
DVD and VHS

Two of the all-time cartoon classics It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966) and A Charlie Brown Christmas (a Peabody and Emmy winner from 1965) highlight this three-disc, six-episode set. Although the DVDs contain no extras (good grief!) and could have been combined on a single disc (drat!), the collection looks and sounds wonderful on DVD. The content is the same on the VHS and DVD sets, with two episodes per tape or disc. Accompanying Pumpkin is You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown, a cute spin on politics that has aged very well since its 1972 release. Christmas sports a lackluster sequel of sorts, It's Christmas Time Again, Charlie Brown (1992) that has Sally dwelling on getting (instead of giving), Charlie Brown facing a spending dilemma, and everyone suffering stage fright before the annual school play. A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (1973) also won an Emmy but is not as well known as others; it also suffers from not having the original cast. Snoopy is foremost in helping to put on an impromptu feast (toast and popcorn) as the gang keeps forgetting the true meaning of the holiday. Also on the disc is a better Thanksgiving venue, The Mayflower Voyages (1988), part of the This is America, Charlie Brown series that breathed new life into the franchise. Mostly narrated by Linus, the show traces the Pilgrims' plight and doesn't talk down to youngsters on the hardships they faced. It's a treasure of a gift (for others or yourself), all nicely packaged.

It's the Pied Piper , Charlie Brown (2000)



Available Formats:
DVD and VHS

When Charlie Brown reads aloud the classic tale of a rat-ridden city, he recasts it as a modern-day misadventure involving a band of sports mice that overruns his town. Whether kicking soccer balls, riding motorbikes, or skating through plazas, these little gray rodents are prolific and proud. They parachute onto dining tables to devour scraps of food, and they river-dance their way into City Hall. How to rid the town of these menacing exhibitionists? Just in time, Charlie Brown introduces the mayor to the Pied Piper Beagle, an adroit accordionist also known as Snoopy. With his usual sophistication, the clever canine parades the band of misfit mice to the edge of town, getting rid of them forever. Snoopy is quickly heralded a hero, but the mayor reneges on his promised payment of a year's supply of dog food. Sweet and unassuming, with a silky-smooth score from David Benoit, this direct-to-video cartoon is a fitting tribute to the late Charles Schulz (it is also the last Peanuts special developed under his supervision). Endearing to the end, it is a classic reminder of why America's famous beagle is still a pied piper of sorts, captivating millions of fans with his enchanting spell--with or without an accordion. Also included is a deft 11-minute feature on Schulz outlining the origins of Peanuts, including a timeline showing when the characters were created. Just right for kids interested in such things.

Join the Peanuts gang when they help the Founding Fathers compose The Constitution.

Product Description from Manufacturer


In Volume 6 of This Is America, Charlie Brown (The Birth of the Constitution), the Peanuts gang are asked to help out while our Founding Fathers discuss the Constitution in 1788. Charlie Brown helps with valet parking (saddling up horses) and experiments with some new games, Snoopy is the guard-dog, Peppermint Patty and Marcie serve water, Linus is the greeter, and Lucy is in charge of cleanup (and of course, complains about it!). Questions abound: should the new country have more governmental power or less? Lucy thinks the solution is to have a queen! Benjamin Franklin stops by Charlie Brown's house to borrow one of his kites for his latest experiment! Snoopy and Woodstock clown around with colonial wigs and try rowing a sinking boat (with Snoopy posing as General George Washington!). This video features a lovely soundtrack by George Winston (known for his Windham Hill collections), who plays Vince Guaraldi's original standards on both piano and harpsicord.

Sally's school report spotlights people who turned ideas into reality: inventors Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison, and Henry Ford.

Product Description from Manufacturer


In the Great inventors, Alexander Graham Bell's discovery of the telephone is pure entertainment. I found myself learning along with my kids. I think this series is an outstanding attempt to introduce American history to even the youngest viewer. While there are some moments that the stories are probably lost on the young viewer, kids are introduced to the langauge of our history that may help them remember these events when learning about them in school. I recommend this series to any parent who is looking for a way to introduce these concepts and events to his or her children.

This is America, Charlie Brown - The Music and Heroes of America (1989)



Available Format:
VHS

Our country 'tis of thee! Schroeder's report shows how tunes almost every school kid knows are linked to our history.

Product Description from Manufacturer


As it begins, Schroeder is reluctant to let Snoopy participate for his report on music in America. So Charlie Brown proposes that if Snoopy behave himself, he be allowed. Both agree and the band features Snoopy on banjo, Franklin on drums, Pig Pen on bass, Charlie Brown on harmonica and trumpet, Linus on guitar and trombone and Schroeder on piano (what else?). The gang plays "Alexander's Ragtime Band", "Yankee Doodle", and "Oh When the Saints Go Marching In",pays homage to John Phillips Sousa with "Stars and Stripes Forever", Irving Berlin, George Cohan with "Yankee Doodle Dandy", and Scott Joplin with "Maple Leaf Rag".

Then Lucy announces that she'd like to combine her report on heroes of America with Schroeder's (naturally, he's furious but the teacher agrees!). She pays homage to Susan B Anthony, Clara Barton, and Helen Keller (even dares to put a Susan B Anthony bust atop Schroeder's piano!). Other heroes mentioned include Eissenhower, Martin Luther King, and Jonas Salk. Peppermint Patty talks about immigration and pay homage to Irving Berlin. There's even mention of Vietnam ("Where Have All the Flowers Gone"). Snoopy dresses up as Franklin D Roosevelt and Elvis.

Franklin gives a report on African American History (paying homage to George Washington Carver and Booker T Washington) and talks about spirituals ("Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen"), and the formation of gospel, ragtime, blues and jazz.

Why, Charlie Brown, Why (1990)



Available Format:
VHS

It's when friends need friends the most. A classmate's serious illness becomes a lesson in life for the Peanuts kids.

Description from Manufacturer


This movie was perfect for helping the children in my daughter's elementary class understand childhood cancer. Although these children did not know her before she was diagnosed, this was a wonderful way to educate them. After the movie was played for the class and their parents, my daughter seemed to feel better about going to class, and less nervous about her hair loss. Leave it to Charlie Brown and the gang to bring children together regardless of the situation at hand. I would recommend this movie to elementary aged children with parental supervision.

Description from Amazon.com Customer Review


This video, or the book by the same title, is excellent for elementary school aged children confronting cancer in themselves or their families. I have donated multiple copies of the video and book to Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago for use with their young cancer patients and their families. The story is especially good for siblings of children with cancer, since it shows how they sometimes feel that they are being ignored, and their sister or brother is getting all of the attention. It also teaches a child how to defend a classmate against bullying, when the girl with cancer is made fun of for having lost her hair. My only reservation would be not to give this video to a child who has extremely advanced cancer, since of course the story has a happy ending, and it might cause the child to wonder why they don't seem to be recovering. Overall: well done, Charles Schulz!

Is This Goodbye, Charlie Brown? (1983)



Available Format:
VHS

The moving van shows up in front of Linus and Lucy's house. What will Charlie Brown's life be like without his blanket-toting pal?

Product Description from Manufacturer


Is This Goodbye, Charlie Brown? packs the wistful, bittersweet punch of Snoopy, Come Home into a half-hour package. But, of course, it has a happy ending. The emotions and comedy work well together, as Charlie Brown grapples to deal with his grief as his best pal, Linus (as well as his chief nemesis, Lucy), prepares to move away. I particularly like the denial and willful self-delusion of Sally, who refuses to believe anything other than that her sweet babboo is coming to take her on a date. But, eventually, the moving truck pulls away and Linus even parts with his beloved blanket (leaving it as a gift to Snoopy). Is that how the story ends! Watch to find out. This special is poignant without being smarmy -- a feat beautifully executed by the late Charles Schultz.

You Don't Look 40, Charlie Brown (1990)



Available Format:
VHS

A fortieth-anniversary Peanuts celebration, including interviews with Charles Schultz.

Product Description from Manufacturer


I remember when this special 1st aired on TV. Since I got to witness the debut of most of the Charlie Brown specials made in the 1970's, I had to see this one. It features clips from the original specials and movies (mentioning the success of the long-running Broadway Play "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown") and pulls a plug for the jazz CD Happy Anniversary, Charlie Brown, featuring David Benoit, Dave Brubeck, Kenny G, and BB King (BB King is featured in this special doing a reading of the "Joe Cool" theme). It also features interviews with the late, great Mr. Schulz and even Cathy Guisewite, creator of the "Cathy" series. The sappy song at the end is a little sappy for me (making it seem a little dated). But this documentary brings back memories of 10 years ago when Charles Schulz wasn't even thinking of retiring!

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966)



Available Formats:
DVD and VHS

Charlie Brown gets rocks in his trick-or-treat bag, Linus awaits a visitation from the Great Pumpkin in his terribly sincere pumpkin patch (while the adoring little Sally sits tight with him), Snoopy falls asleep, Lucy harasses Schroeder, and Pig-Pen kicks up a dust storm even beneath his costume in this classic television broadcast. Funny stuff, but also graced with Charles Schulz's more poignant and gently satiric themes from the 1960s on the influence of faith, failure, and hope in our lives.

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (1973)



Available Formats:
DVD and VHS

This sweet, heartwarming 1973 offering from the Peanuts gang (and Charles Schulz) once again shows Charlie Brown in a pickle, as his erstwhile friends impose upon the hapless would-be-host to provide a memorable and traditional Thanksgiving feast. And as much as Charlie Brown would rather forget the whole thing, he just can't help but try for fear of being labeled a failure. Ultimately it's up to Snoopy and Woodstock to save Charlie from certain embarrassment, and it falls to Linus to impart to all assembled the true meaning of Thanksgiving. This very special Emmy Award-winning cartoon features the usual sweet unassuming humor that only the Peanuts can provide, along with the melodic Vince Guaraldi score, and is one of those childhood classics meant to be enjoyed again and again.

A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)



Available Formats:
DVD and VHS

This half-hour Christmas show is one of the truly lovable animated specials in TV history, a status proved by its annual network telecast since 1965. A Charlie Brown Christmas was the first, and best, of a series of programs based on the Charles M. Schulz cartoon strip "Peanuts." Hapless hero Charlie Brown finds himself depressed at Christmastime, searching for the true meaning of the holiday amidst the glitz and commercialism of the modern age. Appointed director of the school holiday pageant, Charlie Brown ventures out with Linus to buy "a great, big, shiny aluminum Christmas tree." Instead they bring back a miserable tree--a real one. A Charlie Brown Christmas shows off the "Peanuts" gang doing what they do best: Lucy is bossy, Snoopy is crazy, Linus is sweet, and Pig Pen is, well, filthy. Instead of using adult actors trying to sound like kids, the production features real children providing the voices, an endearing effect. The jazz music score, composed by Vince Guaraldi, has become a classic in its own right; like so much about this program, it's an unexpected but perfectly right choice.

Snoopy, Come Home (1972)



Available Format:
VHS

I have seen all the Peanuts movies, and this is the Peanuts movie that really makes me cry no matter how many years I have been watching it for (since around 1979 or so, when I was 5 or 6). It deals with the fact that Snoopy has gotten a letter from his former owner, a little girl named Lila. She is sick in the hospital and asks him to come see her (how did she get Charlie's addresss? Maybe the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm kept the Brown's address, and she asked them for it). He goes to see her, and then comes back. He then tells the rest of the gang (by typing out that he is leaving some of his worldly possessions to them, since he can't speak) that he must return to her ... This movie to me deals with losing a best friend, and then them coming back to you, which is what happened with me in real life. Also, you get to learn the story of how Charlie Brown got Snoopy in the first place (an incident on a playground resulted in Charlie's parents going to the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm and picking out Snoopy a their dog). But, as with all the Peanuts movies, there is a happy ending...

Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown (1975)



Available Formats:
DVD and VHS

"Peanuts" creator Charles Schulz retired from the cartoonist's life early in 2000, and indeed left a few loose strings hanging among his chronically dissatisfied characters. He never did, for instance, cut Charlie Brown much slack in the romance department (or let him kick Lucy's football, for that matter). Sympathetic readers might have taken note of a story in the press just before Schulz said farewell, in which the inspiration for Charlie Brown's unrequited love interest--the never-seen, too-distant, "little red-haired girl"--was identified as a woman who turned down a marriage proposal from Schulz a half-century ago. That bit of biographical detail now adds poignancy to Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown, a 1975 television special built upon years of Valentine's Day "Peanuts" strips. This half-hour show finds Charlie Brown suffering, typically, the ignominy of receiving no hearts-and-flowers greetings while the rest of the gang, including Snoopy, spend their day sorting through piles of love notes. Worse, Schulz's famous sad sack can't get up the nerve to approach his unapproachable angel, though there may be--just may be--a glimmer of hope this time around. It may be Valentine's Day, but not much else is different in the "Peanuts" neighborhood.

It's The Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown (1974)



Available Formats:
DVD and VHS

The thirteenth installment in the evergreen Charlie Brown animated series, It's The Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown, is a delightful romp through the rites of spring. The running gag that holds this string of episodic misadventures together is Peppermint Patty's futile attempts at explaining how to make Easter eggs to Marcy. Highlights of this rather surreal Peanuts outing include Snoopy's dancing with little bunny rabbits inside a kaleidoscope, Sally heading to the mall to purchase a pair of platform shoes (this video was made in 1974), and Woodstock's lavishly equipped bachelor-pad birdhouse. As with the best of the Peanuts cartoons, this will entertain children and adults alike, and is one of the last of the series to feature a music score by Vince Guaraldi.

You're a Good Sport, Charlie Brown (1978)



Available Format:
VHS

This Peanuts special was made in 1975, during the days of motorcross and Jimmy Connors, 1970's tennis pro and features a unique musical score from the late Vince Guaraldi.

The 1st part of this special deals with tennis. Linus walks out on his date with Sally after she yells at the other players: "You'd better get off the courts or my boyfriend will clobber you!". Snoopy plays a game and throws a temper tantrum like a true tennis pro (even if he can't play like one!).

The 2nd part deals with the sport of motorcross (which was inspired by Charles' Schulz's real-life son). After hearing about the motorcross contest from Peppermint Patty, Charlie Brown spends his allowance on a small minibike. Marcie plays the Master of Ceremonies (and interrupts the contestants while interviewing them!). So it's Chuck (or Charles, as Marcie prefers to call him), Peppermint Patty, and the Masked Marvel (you know who!) competing for the prize. But in the process, Charlie Brown and the Marvel have a minor accident! Since Charles is out of a helmet, Linus carves Charlie Brown a new one, made from a pumpkin shell, and the race is on again!

Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (And Don't Come Back) (1980)



Available Format:
VHS

The Peanuts gang go international! With two weeks in France, will Charlie Brown find love overseas?

Product Description from Manufacturer


Charlie Brown, Linus, Peppermint Patty, and Marcy win a contest at school and are awarded a trip to Europe as exchange students (somehow Snoopy and Woodstock wind up on the adventure). The title comes from a line Lucy jealously utters to Charlie Brown ("Bon voyage and don't come back!"- she stays at home). This is possibly the first time adult voices are used (the flight stewardess has an audible voice instead of the trademarked "whomp whomp waw" voice).

In England, Snoopy plays tennis at Wimbledon. Then the gang winds up in France at a mysterious chateau whose name makes everybody shudder and Charlie finds out mysteries about his ancestors (we see a picture of his grandfather who had more hair than Chuck!). Peppermint Patty and Marcy compete for Pierre's attention but Pierre seems to prefer Marcy. There's a running gag about the windup car which Snoopy drives and Charlie Brown winds up the engine for the crazy beagle, injuring his hand every time! Other funny scenes include Charlie Brown's baguette incidents and Peppermint Patty nagging Chuck to death in the exchange classroom ("Don't lick the pages with your fingers and don't hassle me with your sighs, Chuck!"). Of course, Chuck is pushed too far and distrupts the class- "WILL YOU STOP CRITICIZING ME?!"

The story continues with the half-hour TV special What Have We Learned, Charlie Brown?.

Who stole Woodstock's nest? Snoopy turns sleuth and Lucy is judge at the trial of Snoopy's suspect.

Product Description from Manufacturer


Woodstock's nest is missing one afternoon and so it's Snoopy (a la Sherlock Holmes) to the rescue! He comes dressed in the traditional detective attire- hat, cape, and a big pipe which blows bubbles instead of smoke (and Woodstock gets caught in the middle of many of these bubbles)! He travels throughout town interviewing many of the suspects. He handcuffs Lucy, who breaks free! He interviews the sooty mess Pig Pen (and gets lots of dust up his nose)! Funniest of all is when Snoopy comes to interview Peppermint Patty, who thinks he's come over to play Cops and Robbers (she dons a classic burglar's mask)! After they've found the nest, the culprit (whom I dare not give away) takes Woodstock to court, leaving Judge Lucy to settle the final verdict (and she charges just a little bit more than the usual fee)! This Charlie Brown special features a rather funky sounding jazz score by Vince Guaraldi.

A Charlie Brown Celebration (1982)

A special grab bag of Peanuts fun, including Charlie Brown's bout with "the woozies".

This is how Charles Schulz describes this special with the rare live intro at the beginning. And different it is! It was the 1st time the Peanuts gang were featured in several different adventures in just 45 minutes (this approach would be repeated for The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show and It's An Adventure, Charlie Brown)!

Peppermint Patty gets tired of going to school so at Snoopy's suggestion, she enrolls in Ace Obedience School. Sally goes through the normal trials and tribulations in the classroom. Charlie Brown gets the Peanuts gang all tied up in kitestring! Linus gets stuck on a barn roof so it's Snoopy and Woodstock to the rescue! Lucy punishes Schroeder for paying his piano more attention than her! Charlie Brown winds up in the hospital and has an outdoor vigil by Peppermint Patty and Marcy. Stangely enough, when Lucy hears about this, she's devastated and makes a promise that Charlie Brown overhears (which I dare not give away)!

Decsription from Amazon.com Customer Review


Perhaps the nicest thing about this film is that Charlie Brown is finally allowed to have some victories, and isn't ragged on so much (Peppermint Patty excepted); the first two cinematic features (A Boy Named Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Come Home) are SO sad and bittersweet they don't stand up to a lot of repeated viewings (unless you like feeling sad a lot). Here, it's all about fun, friends and camaraderie. The gang winds up at camp and faces off against a bunch of young toughs in a rafting race--of course, those bad kids cheat any chance they get, but the Peanuts gang comes through--with Charlie Brown as leader (thank you, Charles Schulz!)! Lots of good slapstick stuff for the kiddies--Woodstock climbs a snow-covered Snoopy and tries to turn him into a ski resort, runaway rafts, blasting accidents(!), Snoopy & Woodstock rolling around in a tire...and quieter moments that are really quite sweet, and show the author's pedigree--what other kid movie would have the kids holed up in a cabin, where they find an old victrola and waltz to "Charmaine?" I rather like the film music as well--would I watch this had I not a 4-year-old? Well, not as much, anyway, but this is really pretty good as kids' features go.

Snoopy's Reunion
Together at last! See how Snoopy first met Charlie Brown, then witness the reunion of Snoopy with his brothers and sisters.

Product Description from Manufacturer


"You're the Greatest," the first feature on the program, is a 1979 prime-time special that many 30-somethings of my vintage may recall. In it, Charlie Brown trains and competes in the junior olympics decathlon against Freddie Fabulous, Marcie, and the Masked Marvel (guess who?). Because most of the show is comprised of the various events in the competition, it emphasizes visual slapstick more than the wry character development and dialogue that are the highlights of other Peanuts offerings. There's not a lot of variety, but it does have its moments (see, e.g., Charles's "winning" lap at the end) and keeps our kids' attention. Charlie Brown's persistence and Marcie's example as a gracious winner are nice character-building touches.

The second special, "Snoopy's Reunion" is of much later vintage (circa 1990). For classic Peanuts purists, there are a couple of disconcerting touches: adults (who look more like characters out of Dennis the Menace than something from Charles' Schultz's pen) play a part in the story, and speak in regular, non-wah-wah voices. The show attempts to fill in the back-story hinted at in "Snoopy, Come Home": How Charlie Brown first got Snoopy.

It's The Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown
No wonder Snoopy's too tired to do what other dogs do, Charlie Brown. He's Flashbeagle, who dances all night and sleeps all day.

Product Description from Manufacturer


We own several of the Peanuts Double Feature videos, and this one is our kids' favorite.

The first program, He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown is one of the earliest Peanuts specials and is my favorite of the two episodes on the tape. Snoopy's initial, ornery mischief-making is quite humorous, and his eventual taming by Peppermint Patty is a nice lesson in responsibility and gratitude. It's classic Schultz that many parents(like me) will find both nostalgic and funny.

The second, It's Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown!, seems dated to me in certain respects (particularly the disco theme), but is far and away the kids' (ages 6 and 3) favorite. Flashbeagle is the most musical of all the Peanuts special outings, with a number of catchy, character-specific songs that never fail to get our daughters up and dancing (our 3-year-old now sings along with "Listen to Lucy").

This is a solid Peanuts tape worth having in your kids' video library.

Product Description from Manufacturer


You can't go wrong with this one- 2 classic Charlie Brown specials!

In "You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown", Linus runs for Student Government and makes promises galore just like a true politician! It all seems as if Linus has the election in the bag until he pulls a plug for the Great Pumpkin! "AUGH!" Joe Cool makes his TV debut here!

In "It Was a Short Summer, Charlie Brown", we join the Peanuts gang at Summer Camp. Charlie Brown was looking forward to playing baseball, Schroeder was looking forward to practicing his piano, and Linus just wanted to read comics and watch TV. But no, Lucy signs the whole gang up for summer camp. It doesn't help the boys' cabin that the girls can beat them at every game under the sun! Can the Masked Marvel save the day?

NOTE: This is one of the last Charlie Brown specials with Peter Robbins (the original Charlie Brown) supplying the blockhead's voice.

Snoopy Double Feature:

You're In Love & It's Your First Kiss

(Volume 4)



Available Format:
VHS

You're In Love, Charlie Brown
Love's a funny thing, especially when Charlie Brown tries to tell the Little Red-Haired Girl he likes her.

It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown
Good Grief! Charlie Brown discovers his homecoming duties include kissing the Homecoming Queen - the Little Red-Haired Girl!

Product Description from Manufacturer


On this video, you see a side to Charlie Brown you don't often see- his romantic side!

On You're In Love, CB (1967), school is coming to a close and Charlie Brown tries hard to win the attention of the little red-haired girl. He asks Lucy for advice, but she'd rather chew him out! But remember, she's tried to get Schroeder's attention the hard way- by smashing his Beethoven bust and destroying his piano! Undaunted, Schroeder goes to his closet and gets another piano and bust! Peppermint Patty (who makes her animation debut here) tries to help her pal "Chuck". This also marks the debut of the substitute for adult voices ("whomp-whomp-wah"!) A classic, but don't fast-forward during the credits (listen for Charlie Brown's closing line!).

Then it's time for the Homecoming Game and Dance in It's Your 1st Kiss, CB (1977). Charlie Brown's escort for the dance is who else? You got it, the beloved little red-haied girl (she's the Homecoming Queen)! But 1st, he must play in the football game. Peppermint Patty is the coach, Snoopy is the referee and well, everything else! Lucy holds the ball and the rest is sports history! Poor Charlie Brown gets blamed for every blunder!

Snoopy Double Feature:

There's No Time For Love & Someday You'll Find Her

(Volume 5)



Available Format:
VHS

There's No Time For Love, Charlie Brown
How's this for a perfect match: Peppermint Patty...and that wishy-washy kid! As Patty discovers, love's a chore when there's always schoolwork to do!

Someday You'll Find Her, Charlie Brown
Keep your eye on the ball, Charlie Brown! Instead, our lovestruck hero sets out to find the girl he spotted in the stands of a televised football game.

Product Description from Manufacturer


There's No Time for Love is probably most significant for the debut of Marcy in the history of Charlie Brown specials. She's smart, sincere, and well-meaning. Her only flaw is that she always calls her best friend Peppermint Patty "sir" (who has to remind Marcy endless times "STOP CALLING ME SIR!")! Both of them have one thing in common- they have a crush on Chuck. All 3 of them are supposed to go to the art museum on a school trip but they make a detour to the supermarket!

Charlie Brown falls in love with a girl he sees at a game on TV in Someday You'll Find Her, Charlie Brown. Determined to find her, he goes to the stadium where she was (with a little "help" from Linus and Snoopy) and spends the entire day searching for his TV romance (he makes a few wrong turns, though).

Snoopy Double Feature:

Play it Again & She's a Good Skate

(Volume 7)



Available Format:
VHS

Play It Again, Charlie Brown
Lucy arranges Schroeder's concert debut: as a rock musician! Will Schroeder forsake his beloved Beethoven?

She's a Good Skate, Charlie Brown
He's grumpy but he's good! Snoopy is the hard-to-please coach who trains Peppermint Patty for a figure skating championship.

Product Description from Manufacturer


The 1st episode is the 1st Charlie Brown special of the 1970's. In Play It Again, Charlie Brown, Lucy longs for a warm gesture from Schroeder. Peppermint Patty suggests Lucy book him for a gig at the PTA meeting. Schroeder is naturally flattered. But his enthusiasm soon turns to resentment when he discovers he's expected to play rock music with Charlie Brown (guitar), Pig Pen (drums), and Snoopy (standup bass). And Schroeder can't be bothered with too many things not related to Beethoven.

The 2nd episode (She's a Good Skate, Charlie Brown) is the 1st Charlie Brown special of the 1980's. Peppermint Patty shows her more feminine side when she enters a figure-skating contest. Snoopy is her grumpy, demanding coach. Marcie gives her advice and tries to make Peppermint Patty a dress (which looks more like a straightjacket with its lack of sleeves!). With the error rectified, Peppermint Patty is ready to skate away! But something else goes wrong, and it's Woodstock to the rescue!

NOTE: The latter episode is one of the 1st times adult voices are featured in a Charlie Brown special.

Charlie Brown's All-Stars & It's Spring Training, Charlie Brown

(Volume 8)



Available Format:
VHS

Charlie Brown's All Stars
Manager Charlie stands up for what's right when the league won't let girls or dogs play in its baseball games.

It's Spring Training, Charlie Brown
Wow! A business will give uniforms to the team...if it first wins a game. Play ball!

Product Description from Manufacturer


If you're a real Peanuts fan, surely you know of this terrific special from 1968, but it seems to be overshadowed by the admittedly impressive holiday specials. "Charlie Brown's All Stars" culls a number of very funny situations from a couple of seasons of Peanuts baseball comic strips, and the traditionally choppy editing is kicked up a notch to include as many jokes as possible, delivered in the charmingly non-professional style of real kidtalk. Charlie Brown's demoralized team finally decides to call it quits so they can actually enjoy their summer free of the humiliation of constant losing, and there's some wonderfully playful visual humor whether the kids are splashing (or surfing!) in the community wading pool, skateboarding, or jumping rope (sometimes more than one at a time!). When Mr. Hennessey offers to sponsor Charlie Brown's team, the team is convinced to stick it out, with the promise of new uniforms being the main reason. However, Mr. Hennessey welches on the deal when he learns that Charlie Brown's team includes girls and a dog (the league won't allow it), so instead of kicking them off the team, he gives up the uniforms and the chance to play in a "real" league. Charlie decides to keep that knowledge from them and capitalize on the team's positive buzz, and they play their best game ever--which, of course, is lost by a too-confident steal to home by you-know-who. The news of the cancelled uniforms sets the team on edge further, until Linus reveals Charlie Brown's sacrifice. Inspired by Charlie Brown's faithfulness, the rest of the team decides to make him a manager's uniform; unfortunately for Linus, the only fabric available is his blanket. The closing shot reveals Linus and Charlie Brown on the pitcher's mound in the rain, with Linus relievedly hanging onto Charlie Brown's uniform. The fast pace and laugh-out-loud jokes will especially appeal to adults, I think; adults may even enjoy it more than their kids! The unique jazz accompaniment from Vince Guaraldi is ever-present and continues to help make the early Peanuts specials in a class by themselves. The complete package also includes a much more contemporary second feature which pales by comparison, though it is in the baseball theme. I would pay the price above just for "All-Stars," which earns a definite 5-star rating.
