PEANUTS:DELUXE HOLIDAY COLLECTION is a new DVD set featuring the three main holiday Peanuts cartoons that are each a classic and cherished by millions of adults and kids alike.

The set is remastered and each special is in their own DVD case and comes housed in a cardboard box with art work.

What makes this set different from the 2000 release of this set is on “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.” This set includes an episode called “It’s Magic, Charlie Brown,” which replaces the bonus episode called “You’re Not Elected, Charlie Brown” on the 2000 release of ITGP,CB holiday set.

And this set includes all new featurettes on the making of each holiday classic. That alone is worth buying this set. And you also get a bonus music CD containing six song sampler from “A Charlie Brown Christmas” music soundtrack.

If that’s not enough, each DVD also contains a ITunes code to download two-additional songs from each of the soundtracks. Very nice!

Here’s what’s in the set:

DVD #1

IT’S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN

*** bonus episode *** It’s Magic, Charlie Brown.

*** new featurette *** We Need A Blockbuster, Charlie Brown–13:50-minutes– with interviews with director Bill Melendez, executive producer Lee Mendelson, wife and son of Charles Schulz-Jeannie and Monte, historians and others.

*** code for i-Tunes* to two songs *** “Great Pumpkin Waltz” and “Oh, Good Grief” from the Charlie Brown’s Holiday Hits.

DVD #2

A CHARLIE BROWN THANKSGIVING

*** bonus episode *** The Mayflower Voyagers.

*** new featurette *** Popcorn & Jellybeans: Making A Thanksgiving Classic–approx. 12:22-minutes–interviews with Melendez & Mendelson AND the voices of Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty and Sally. They’re adults now, obviously, but it’s nice to finally see some of the kids who were behind the voices. BTW, Peppermint Patty was done by a boy! LOL! Great cast!

*** code for i-Tunes* for two songs *** “Camptown Races” and “Thanksgiving Theme” also from Charlie Brown’s Holiday Hits.

DVD #3

A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS

*** bonus episode *** It’s Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown

*** new featurette *** A Christmas Miracle: The Making of A Charlie Brown Christmas–approx. 15:50- minutes–discussion from Mendelson, Melendez et al, about the making of this Christmas classic and how it almost never came to be. And you’ll find out why the bible passage was included in the script, because people told creator Charles Schulz that it would be blasphemous and degrading to use such sacred words in a cartoon! I guess he showed them, LOL! CBS thought that ACBC would bomb and that they would never re-run it again. How wrong they were!

*** bonus music cd *** A Charlie Brown Christmas Six Song Sampler–songs include: My Little Drum, Linus And Lucy, Hark, The Herald Angels Sing, Christmas Is Coming, Für Elise, and Greensleeves.

***i-tunes* code *** “Hark, The Hearald Angels Sing” and “Christmas Time Is Here” (vocal) from A Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack CD.

So, I guess aside from the featurettes and the different bonus episode on ITGP,CB, the remastering and 6-track music cd, this set is pretty much like the one from 2000. If you don’t have that set, then I would recommend this set! Or if you’re a big Peanuts fan like me, you’ll probably get this set and sell the old one. The holidays wouldn’t be the same without these Peanuts specials.

*EDIT *iTunes Codes:

The i-Tunes codes seem to work only for the songs on the “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” DVD insert. But if you email customer support at i-Tunes, they’ll give you song credits to purchase the additional i-Tune songs from “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas” soundtracks.

I own the “original” set of DVD Holiday Classics and this set mirrors those in content except for different “B-sides” on the Halloween and Christmas Specials, as well as small “making of” featurettes on each disc.

After reading a few reviews, I purchased this set just for the fact that they’ve been remastered. The’re gorgeous. The colors are vibrant, the presentation and menus are updated, and the original content looks better than ever. Well worth the purchase.

I was so excited for this set to arrive the day after the release … all three of these specials conjure warm-fuzzies in my tummy! The extra bits are great too … I especially love the featurettes that each release has had in the Peanuts collection discs so far. In fact, the only thing I miss when watching these classics now is the spinning “Special” graphic that used to come on CBS before a Peanuts special would start. When you were a kid and saw that you knew something great was coming on. 😉

FYI … this set not only comes with a CD of songs from the classic Peanuts christmas album, but each individual DVD has a paper inside with a download code for two free Peanuts songs from iTunes – for a total of 6 you get with the set!

Oh, and for the person who asked and was bashed … these do NOT come with the paper slipsleeves. Each DVD is in its own box, but the slipsleeves that are included in the Easter and Valentine’s DVDs are not here … only the outer set box is included, but it has the same metallic graphics as the Valentine & Easter sleeves, so it still looks nice on a shelf together with the other DVDs.

My only gripe with Amazon is that they shipped it in a jiffy envelope (instead of their usual box) so the corners on the box set are all smashed up. That’s the only reason I rated it 4 out of 5 stars … the actual specials get 5, but Amazon loses one for poor shipping. I probably would’ve purchased it in a store if I’d known that.

UPDATE: (SLIGHT SPOILER) Okay, I finally watched all of the specials and featurettes and I have to say aside from the actual specials, my absolute favorite moment (besides finding out my guess that Peppermint Patty’s voice was a boy’s was correct!) was Lee Mendelson talking about his discomfort over Woodstock eating the turkey in the Thanksgiving special. I almost fell out of my chair with a loud “YES!” as I’ve always had the same feeling about it. My mom said I even used to cry at that part when I was a kid. Oh Sparky, what a wonderfully twisted sense of humor you had!

The Peanuts collection is wonderful because there are no commercials and extras on each DVD. My kids particularily like the Mayflower video which is very informative. The video collection makes watching tv enjoyable with my kids.

They are like familiar guests that visit every holiday season only they are not as obnoxious as family members and they don’t overstay their welcome. Warner Home Video has released The Peanuts Holiday Collection, a three DVD boxed set containing the Peanuts most beloved holiday specials: A Charlie Brown Christmas Deluxe Edition, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown Deluxe Edition, and A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Deluxe Edition. Each feature has been re-mastered and looks fantastic. In addition, each comes with a brand new featurette and other bonus material making the set a perfect selection for the holidays.

A Charlie Brown Christmas Deluxe Edition is the feature that started it all, an Emmy and Peabody award winning classic that premiered in 1965. Charlie Brown searches for the meaning of Christmas while all of his friends are wrapped up in the seasonal commercialism. It is up to Linus to explain what Christmas is all about in his Biblical reading from the Gospel of Luke.

The disc includes the featurette, “A Christmas Miracle, The Making of A Charlie Brown Christmas”. In the featurette, producers the late Bill Melendez and Lee Mendelson discuss how the show came about and their collaboration with Charles Schulz. They actually thought they did a terrible job and figured it was the last time they’d ever do a Peanuts feature. More than a few network executives had to eat their words when the show was the second highest rated show of the week. Melendez explains the decision to use actual kids for the Peanuts voices at a time when using adult actors was common place. As a tidbit, Melendez himself voiced Snoopy.

This disc also contains the 1992 special “It’s Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown”, a far less successful feature. Here, Charlie Brown is selling wreaths door-to-door (and it’s not even Thanksgiving yet) and the gang prepares to put on a Christmas play. You also get a CD with several songs from the original soundtrack by Vince Guaraldi.

It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown Deluxe Edition was actually the third Peanuts special, debuting in 1966. Charlie Brown and the gang go out trick-or-treating, Linus and Sally are camped in the pumpkin patch awaiting the arrival of the Great Pumpkin, and Snoopy imagines himself as a World War I flying ace, battling the Red Baron. This special was just as successful as the Christmas show, pulling an incredible 49 share in the ratings.

A new featurette, `We need a Blockbuster, Charlie Brown” is included. Here, Melendez and Mendelson talk about how they were asked by CBS to create another ratings winner and went to Schulz to find out what theme would work. Schulz’ wife and son also provide input on the creation of this seasonal favorite.

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Deluxe Edition first premiered in 1973 and was yet another Emmy winner for Melendez, Mendelson, and Schulz. This special differed in that it did not draw upon the comic strip for its plot but was mainly composed of all original material. Thanksgiving becomes a meal with toast, popcorn, and jelly beans! A second feature “The Mayflower Voyagers” is also included. Part of the “This is America, Charlie Brown” series, this 1994 feature finds Charlie, Sally, Linus, and Lucy, as pilgrims crossing the ocean onboard the Mayflower.

The all-new featurette for this disc is entitled “Popcorn & Jelly Beans: Making a Thanksgiving Classic”. Once again, Melendez and Mendelson talk about the genesis of this cartoon. To them, Thanksgiving seemed to be the next obvious choice for their latest Peanuts special.

If you already own these specials there probably isn’t a very compelling reason to run out and buy this set if you’re just interested in the cartoons themselves. However if you are interested in learning more about these classics then it is definitely worth getting for the three new featurettes. Each runs about 14 – 15 minutes and is a lot of fun. You get the sense that they had a lot of fun making these holiday specials.
