I think everyone is familiar with the Charlie Brown holiday episodes. I’ve always loved watching the special on TV at Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Now, my 2 year old, Jude is obsessed with “Charlie Groun”. Every single day he asks to watch “Charlie Groun” and quotes some of his favorite lines for the episodes.
He absolutely loves the holiday, Halloween so I think “It’s a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” is his favorite. I love it when he cries out, ” you owe me restitution”. There is also a bonus episode, “It’s Magic, Charlie Brown” – This bonus episode finds Snoopy putting on a show after he checks out a book on magic tricks from the library.
As thanksgiving approaches we are watching “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” more often. Special features include a bonus episode, The Mayflower Voyagers and a new featurette titled The Making of A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. This featurette takes a look at the final installment of the Peanuts holiday trilogy and what it meant to its creators.
Today we are watching, “A Charlie Brown Christmas”. The bonus episode, “It’s Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown” is the second Christmas-themed Peanuts episode since A Charlie Brown Christmas. Holiday preparations include Charlie Brown selling wreaths door-to-door to make extra money, Peppermint Patty sweating out an important book report and the entire crew appearing in a Christmas pageant.
I have a feeling we will be watching Peanuts Holiday Collection and Charlie Brown’s Christmas Tales for a long time. I’m totally OK with that.
“Peanuts Holiday Collection” — A box set that contains three popular, seasonal Peanuts specials in one set (“A Charlie Brown Christmas,” “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” and “It’s a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” plus bonus episodes). This classic set is released on Blu-ray™ hi-def format for the first time.
“Charlie Brown’s Christmas Tales” (on standard format) — A holiday special made up of a series of animated vignettes, each featuring members of the Peanuts gang.
