“Peanuts Holiday Collection Ultimate Collector’s Edition” DVD Set
On November 16th, Warner Home Video released Peanuts Holiday Collection Ultimate Collector’s Edition on Blu-ray and DVD! I remember watching the Peanuts gang around the holidays when I was growing up. It was an awesome experience to share that tradition with my boys! You can purchase the Peanuts Holiday Collection Ultimate Collector’s Edition in stores and online, retailing for $69.97.
Peanuts Holiday Collection Ultimate Collector’s Edition includes three all-time favorite Peanuts prime time specials including It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and A Charlie Brown Christmas. All specials come in a Blu-ray + DVD pack which includes both the Blu-ray and DVD editions of the specials. The collection features six discs total (three Blu-ray discs and three standard discs). DVD extras include three bonus episodes; It’s Magic, Charlie Brown, The Mayflower Voyagers and It’s Christmas Time Again, Charlie Brown. This collection also comes with a set of keepsake collectible premiums including three holiday-themed window clings and a Lucite lenticular Snowglobe that depicts the iconic ice skating scene from A Charlie Brown Christmas.
Peanuts Holiday Collection Ultimate Collector’s Edition Featured Specials:
– A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving – In this Emmy Award-winning special, Peppermint Patty invites herself to Charlie Brown’s house for Thanksgiving dinner. Marcie and Franklin are soon added as dinner guests. Charlie Brown admits that his culinary skills are limited to “cold cereal and maybe toast.” Snoopy and Woodstock transform the ping-pong table in the backyard into a dinner table. As the guests arrive, they are each served two slices of buttered toast, some pretzel sticks, popcorn and jelly beans. Patty is outraged at the meal and berates Charlie Brown until embarrassed and dejected, he leaves the table and goes back into the house.
– It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown – This Emmy Award-nominated special, finds the Peanuts gang outfitted in costumes, ready for trick or treating and crashing Violet’s Halloween party. Charlie Brown is 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 steadfastly hold vigil in the pumpkin patch as he awaits the Great Pumpkin.
– A Charlie Brown Christmas – In this Emmy and Peabody Award winning classic, Charlie Brown is upset by how commercial the Christmas holiday has become. To coax him out of his holiday blues, Lucy suggests he direct the school’s Christmas pageant and decorate a glorious tree. Charlie Brown concedes. The tree he finds however, is puny, prompting everyone to ridicule him.
Peanuts Holiday Collection Ultimate Collector’s Edition Bonus Episodes:
– 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. With Marcie and Sally as his assistants, he performs many tricks (some that work and some that don’t) before an audience. The grand finale features the biggest trick of all, making Charlie Brown disappear. To everyone’s amazement, Snoopy makes him invisible but doesn’t know how to bring Charlie Brown back. Will Snoopy find a way to reverse the trick?
– The Mayflower Voyagers – In this bonus episode from the This is America, Charlie Brown series, the Peanuts kids become pilgrims sailing to the New World aboard the Mayflower and endure the first hard winter on Plymouth Plantation.
– It’s Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown – This episode is the second Christmas-themed Peanuts special 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.
“If you are a fan of the Peanuts, this is the set no collector should miss. It features three of the most revered prime time specials all beautifully re-mastered, on Blu-ray disc for vibrant picture and sound quality. We’ve also added some unique extras including collectible Peanuts memorabilia and other holiday-inspired bonus episodes,” said Amit Desai, WHV Vice President of Family, Animation & Partner Brands Marketing. He added, “Decades after they were initially broadcast, these specials are just as compelling and relevant with today’s young viewers as they were 40 years ago and for many, it’s not the holidays without them.”
I love watching these holiday episodes and it meant even more to me to watch them with my boys. I hope these episodes continue to be enjoyed throughout the generations in our family. The Peanuts Holiday Collection Ultimate Collector’s Edition is an awesome gift to give or add to your own collection. My boys immediately put up the window clings and set up the snow globe in their room. Thanks to Warner Home Video for this awesome review!
