Product Description

Two classic Peanuts cartoons. In 'I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown', Rerun, the younger brother of Linus and Lucy, turns to his best friend Snoopy for amusement when Lucy stresses him out. But Snoopy is busy, so he invites his canine brother Spike for a visit. Then the fun begins. In 'A Charlie Brown Christmas', Charlie Brown has found the thinnest, scrawniest Christmas tree ever for the Christmas play. All seems lost until the rest of the gang help to decorate the tree, and discover that a little affection can make all the difference.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic hidden away. 23 Jan 2007
By Mr K
If I hadn't looked closely I would've missed it.. This dvd has a new Peanuts holiday tale where Rerun decides he wants a dog for Christmas. It's an entertaining enough tale I guess, but the real gem is hidden away as a bonus feature; A Charlie Brown Christmas.

This is the classic 1965 Charlie Brown animated tale that used to be repeated every year where a melancholy Charlie Brown searches for the true meaning of Christmas in the face of commercialism. Featuring the infamous score by Vince Guaraldi, who defined the sound of Charlie Brown's animated existance.

Often referenced in contemporary Christmas specials or episodes, this is a true classic that no fan of animation should miss. The real shame is that it's not been given a dvd of its own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute DVD for Xmas 25 Dec 2010
By Inspector Gadget VINE VOICE
This 40-minute TV special tells the story of Rerun, Linus and Lucy's very cute younger brother (I loved the scenes with him stuck on the back of his mother's bicycle). As the smallest child he feels left out of playing around with the other kids and wishes for a dog for Xmas. He starts a great friendship with Snoopy but Charlie Brown is reluctant to let him go. I felt so sorry for Rerun. He's just so desperate for attention, to be taken seriously. He's got a lot of love inside him and needs a best friend to let it all out. Jimmy Bennett's voice acting is spot-on and makes him so real.

It's all harmless fun, if not completely in-disposable. I've made it a Xmas tradition already as well as the other seasonal Charlie Brown specials. Though the DVD is where the real worth comes in. Included is a decent documentary on the original Charlie Brown Christmas, with interviews with cast members and the filmmakers. Also included is Happy New Year, Charlie Brown in which Old blockhead gets nothing right. And nothing goes right for him either. This New Year themed special is no exception. All Chuck wants to do is prepare for a New Year's Eve party and ask out the little red-headed girl he's long had a crush on. Only his luck would land him with the task of reading War and Peace in just a few days with a book report due as soon as he goes back to school.

While the others are having fun, dancing, drinking root beer, and counting down to midnight Chuck can do nought but slave away through the pages of a Russian epic. You can't help but feel sorry for him. His bad luck doesn't end there though, or ever come to think of it.

Makes for a perfect double-bill with any of the Peanuts Xmas specials in the week between Dec 25th and Dec 31st.

The DVD is in 1.33:1 full frame, as drawn, with Dolby 2.0 sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Christmas Classic 10 Oct 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Regular viewing in our household each year at Christmastime--A Charlie Brown Christmas. A needed reminder that the true meaning of Christmas has nothing to do with a flashy high-tech tree or commercialization of the season. A true classic...........

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 29 Dec 2012

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this and the 'Peanuts' dvd box set. I have watched them all along with two young children (3yrs & 5yrs). And I think it was a close call as to who enjoyed the cartoons more. Simple, enjoyable entertainment that can't be faulted.
