Peanuts: 1970’s Collection, Volume One – DVD Review

Peanuts.1970

Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of your favorite Peanuts characters are back! This all new collection features six remastered Peanuts TV specials from the 1970’s, two of which have never been on DVD before.

If you’ve never experienced the Peanuts world (and if not, you must be living in a hole somewhere), this series of specials will quickly clue you into just how zany these classic comic strip character gone animated can be. These characters are iconic and a part of American history. Creator/artist Charles M. Schulz is one of the great cartoonists of the 20th century.

This particular collection is only part of the many specials aired in the 1970’s. They include:

Play It Again, Charlie Brown (first time on DVD)

You’re Not Elected, Charlie Brown

There’s no Time for Love, Charlie Brown

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

It’s a Mystery, Charlie Brown (first time on DVD)

It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown

You also get a very insightful special feature, Woodstock: Creating Snoopy’s Sidekick. This featurette explores the genesis and evolution of Snoopy’s pal from nameless bird to a loyal friend who will always be associated with Snoopy.

Many of us are quite familiar with It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and The Charlie Brown Christmas Special. For those who love these, and for those who want to see more Peanuts animated action, this collection is a must-see!
