5.0 out of 5 stars Trans-generational entertainment!,
This review is from: Peanuts 1960's Collection [DVD] (DVD)I bought this because I wanted to re-live some of the memories of Charlie Brown and Snoopy from my childhood, but I showed it to my 2-year-olds as an alternative to their staple viewing(Peppa, cBeebies) and it has now firmly established its place as a firm favourite for family viewing time. The kids love the music, the little excerpts of Snoopy's antics and my son finds Charlie Brown's teacher (wah wah waah) absolutely hilarious.
Fantastic value DVD for classic entertainment. I now wish that the remastered 70's editions could be released for a similar price as I really want to expand the library, but can't stretch to import prices!!

5.0 out of 5 stars With Trepidation,
This review is from: Peanuts 1960's Collection [DVD] [DVD] (DVD)I bought the DVD for a little girl who I wanted to share the pleasure I remember in seeing the 1960's episodes on TV. I had nothing to worry about. She was entranced by the quirky humour and strangely deep understanding of the human condition, that the characters in Peanuts engender. Perhaps the stangest result was I enjoyed it more than the first time round. Perhaps maturity allows you to see more. Anyway the little girl wanted to know if there was more and could she have them. Notice the word have and not see. Obviously she wants to go back again and again; the sign of a new fan.
Recommended to all the young at heart, no matter what their age.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poor Marnie Moo!,
This review is from: Peanuts 1960's Collection [DVD] (DVD)I just couldn't wait to get hold of this and view it, even though it was supposed to be a Christmas present for my little girl! Having said that, she seems to love it as much as I do. When these "specials" aired during my 1970s childhood Christmasses, I loved nothing better than curling up to watch them, with a handful of choccies - it's the same today!! I'm 41, and these films have lost none of their appeal. Charlie Brown's angst is even more pertinent today than it ever was. They thought Christmas was commercial back then - what would the Peanuts gang have to say about it now!??!
4.0 out of 5 stars Good bargain,
This review is from: Peanuts 1960's Collection [DVD] (DVD)Happy to get this collection at a very competitive price. These are the classic cartoons, and well worth the price.
5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely smashing,
This review is from: Peanuts 1960's Collection [DVD] (DVD)This receives a five-stars, for this product offers my expectations. That being, it's offers the Peanuts specials of the 1960s, considered the best collection of Peanuts specials of all other decade for telling meaningful storylines that have poignancy and like all good pieces of artwork, it leads us to question afterwards.
Peanuts being a satisfyingly timeless piece of animation, I enjoyed that this meets my expectation. Let the cosy, calm movements of Peanuts relax you, and the beautiful art work of Bill Melendez fascinate you. It really is the break from our high-action and whizzy we all need. Peanuts really is a rather unique thing in the world of entertainment.
This is brilliant for all ages, for that can be credited to Peanuts retaining the newspaper quality of innocence and genius humour of comic strips. Snoopy's loveable antics is adored by children. While so, the intricate pathos of Charlie Brown is felt and related to well by the older audiences. And that's some of the most intriguing aspects of Peanuts, it's ability to perfectly offer a balance to a whole range of audience.
I would like to add some information about the DVD, the resolution is 720 by 576. While nobody is expects a full-HD production here, the re-mastering for this quality of production is very well done, while still having that desirable home-spun feel to it.
