'Peanuts: 1960's Collection'
(Peter Robbins, Gail DeFaria, et al / 2-Disc DVD / NR / 2009 / Warner Bros.)

Overview: All the Peanuts episodes from the 1960s remastered all in one set. Timed to release around anniversary of Woodstock Festival where Woodstock will be the mascot.

DVD Verdict: Although I was certainly not around in the 1960s, these 'Peanuts' TV specials are just as nostalgic to me as they could possibly be to those that enjoyed them the first time round. I mean, I still grew up watching them in the 90s so I'm not exactly unknown to their wonders, but anyway, here is a rundown of what to expect from this great 2-disc box-set:

'A Charlie Brown Christmas' (1965) - The perennial Christmas classic about the down on his luck Charlie Brown and his adorably pathetic Christmas Tree. This is where the Peanuts Specials all began.
- 'Charlie Brown's All-Stars' (1966) - It's ball season and Charlie Brown faces a moral dilemma when he can get his team new uniforms and a shot at being part of an official league if he is willing to kick Lucy, Violet, Patty, Frieda and Snoopy off the team.
'It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown' (1966) - Another perennial classic about poor Charlie Brown getting more trick's than treat's and ever optimistic Linus spending the night in a humble pumpkin patch. He believes in the Great Pumpkin.

'You're In Love, Charlie Brown' (1967) - Charlie Brown just wants the courage to meet his crush, the little red haired girl. When Linus and Peppermint Patty try to help things only get worse for good old Chuck.
'He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown' (1968) - Snoopy is supposed to return to Daisy Hill Puppy Farm for obedience training but winds up at the house of Peppermint Patty instead. Will Charlie Brown get his dog pal to come back home?
'It Was A Short Summer Charlie Brown' (1969) - At summer camp the boys are losing everything to the girls and putting up with poor conditions. Will the boys be able to prove themselves as winner's before the end of the summer? Maybe some help from the Masked Marvel (aka Snoopy) can do the trick.

In closing, the overall picture quality looks great, and there is also a very nice documentary on Vince Guaraldi. I recommend this set for any fan of 'Peanuts' or for parents looking to put some classic animation into their kids' memories. [TD] This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.33:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the following Special Features:
