PEANUTS Holiday Collection On DVD
Good grief! Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty, Linus, Snoopy, Woodstock and the rest of the PEANUTS gang are back to celebrate your favorite holidays when Warner Home Video releases the PEANUTS Holiday Collection in a three-DVD collector set that will include A CHARLIE BROWN THANKSGIVING, A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS and IT'S A GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN Peanuts TV classics on September 23.
Since 1950, PEANUTS, created by Charles M. Schulz has been one of the most beloved comic strips in the world. Soon thereafter PEANUTS holiday TV specials became instant hits and secured Charlie Brown's position as a pop culture icon.
The PEANUTS Holiday Collection contains everyone's favorite PEANUTS holiday titles in one set with the all-new deluxe editions. The collector's set includes A CHARLIE BROWN THANKSGIVING Deluxe Edition, A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS Deluxe Edition and IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN Deluxe Edition with the new re-mastered episodes as well as all of the bonus features.
In addition to new packaging and the all-new Deluxe Editions, the PEANUTS Holiday Collection will also include a CD with songs from the original soundtrack by Vince Guaraldi. IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN Deluxe Edition has the gang in the spooky spirit, dressing up to go trick or treating and to crash Violet's spooktacular Halloween party. While the crew goes out to collect their candy -- Charlie Brown in a ghost costume (with more eyeholes cut out than needed), Lucy dressed as a witch and Snoopy in a World War I flying ace costume, Linus decides to hold vigil in the pumpkin patch as he awaits the Great Pumpkin. The Halloween special includes a documentary focusing on the myth and tradition of the Halloween staple television program.
A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS Deluxe Edition features the re-mastered Christmas special in an updated look that still maintains the integrity and feel of vintage Peanuts. The Emmy and Peabody Award winning classic features Charlie Brown who has the Yuletide blues. To get into the holiday spirit, Lucy advises Charlie Brown to direct the Christmas play and put up a great tree. Charlie Brown takes the advice, but the tree he finds is short, spindly and not very green, prompting everyone to make fun of him. However, the real meaning of Christmas works its magic on the Peanuts gang and they all end up in the holiday spirit.
The Deluxe Edition contains bonus features including:
--A new featurette: "A Christmas Miracle: The Making of A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS" – An in-depth look at how the producers brought a newspaper comic strip to animated life in a new medium. Under tense pressure and with many doubters, the show creators were able to create Peanuts in a new medium and make the show a smash success.
--Digital downloads of two songs from the popular soundtrack
--A bonus episode: IT'S CHRISTMASTIME AGAIN, CHARLIE BROWN
