A Charlie Brown Christmas | Blu-ray 2 Disc Collectors Set

Nothing says Christmas to boobosh better than a bit of Charlie Brown | I could watch this holiday classic over and over and I will be forcing my two girls to join me this year, I know they’ll love it | This half-hour Christmas show is one of the truly lovable animated specials in TV history, a status proved by its annual network telecast since 1965 | A Charlie Brown Christmas was the first, and best, of a series of programs based on the Charles M. Schulz cartoon strip “Peanuts” | Hapless hero Charlie Brown finds himself depressed at Christmastime, searching for the true meaning of the holiday amidst the glitz and commercialism of the modern age | Appointed director of the school holiday pageant, Charlie Brown ventures out with Linus to buy “a great, big, shiny aluminum Christmas tree” | Instead they bring back a miserable looking tree – a real one | A Charlie Brown Christmas shows off the “Peanuts” gang doing what they do best: Lucy is bossy, Snoopy is crazy, Linus is sweet, and Pig Pen is, well, filthy | Instead of using adult actors trying to sound like kids, the production features real children providing the voices, an endearing effect | The jazz music score, composed by Vince Guaraldi, has become a classic in its own right; like so much about this program, it’s an unexpected but perfectly right choice and still stands up to this day.
