As the Super Bowl approaches, Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts Gang get consumers excited about football with release of Peanuts Deluxe Edition: Touchdown Charlie Brown! available from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) January 21, 2014. This football-inspired title is comprised of the re-mastered, animated TV special, It’s Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown, in which the Peanuts gang celebrate homecoming, plus three football-themed episodes of The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show. Peanuts Deluxe Edition: Touchdown Charlie Brown!
In It’s Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown, it’s homecoming season at Charlie Brown’s school. The kids celebrate with a parade, a dance and most importantly, football! The big game, which is refereed by Snoopy, draws many spectators. Charlie Brown is the team’s placekicker and Lucy is the placekick setter. The pressure to win is on but can Lucy control her urge to pull the ball away just as Charlie Brown is about to kick it? Or will she risk losing the game for a chance to humiliate him as she’s traditionally done in the past?
Good grief! As if the game wasn’t enough pressure, Linus and Charlie Brown are chosen as escorts for the homecoming queen and her court. Charlie Brown is asked to escort the queen, which happens to be none other than the elusive, little red-haired girl, whom Charlie Brown has been pining for all his life. In spite of his trembling from nervousness, he escorts her to the dance floor and somehow summons up the courage to kiss her on the cheek. This kiss is electrifying. However, from that moment forward, everything becomes a complete blur for Charlie Brown. He wakes the next morning having no memory of anything that happened.
Peanuts Deluxe Edition: Touchdown Charlie Brown! also features three delightful, football-inspired episodes from The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show, for nearly two-hours of Peanuts and football fun!
“Peanuts Deluxe Edition: Touchdown Charlie Brown! is the perfect title to enjoy in anticipation of the upcoming Super Bowl. During that time of the year, the whole country is focused on football,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation and Partner Brands Marketing. She added, “This title is a great way for kids to learn about the popular sport and to enjoy some timeless, classic animation.”
