    Synopsis


    A Charlie Brown Christmas
    As incredible as it seems, CBS head man James Aubrey originally vetoed his network's presentation of the animated A Charlie Brown Christmas on the grounds that Charles M. Schultz's round-headed protagonist was a "loser" who wouldn't attract an audience! The story proposes that Charlie Brown is convinced that the true meaning of Christmas has been forgotten by his Peanuts friends, not to mention the rest of the world. "Psychiatrist" Lucy advises Charlie Brown to get into the holiday spirit by directing the kids' upcoming Christmas play. Despite his utter lack of control over his cast, Charlie Brown takes his job seriously, even setting out to find a genuine Christmas tree to decorate the set instead of the usual aluminum job. But Charlie Brown's tree is a scrawny, pathetic thing, and all seems lost. That is, until the rest of the Peanuts gang decide to pitch in and decorate the woebegone tree. An instant hit when first telecast December 9, 1965, A Charlie Brown Christmas has been rebroadcast virtually every year since. It was produced by Lee Mendelson and Bill Melendez, the latter providing the squeals and growls of Charlie Brown's hyper-intelligent dog, Snoopy. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Holiday Hero

      This film is a GREAT holiday film for the whole family! Warm up by a fire with the whole Peanuts gang! Good ole Charlie Brown is having trouble getting into the spirit of Christmas, he is frustrated by the whole commercialization of the "most wonderful time of the year"! It takes the most mundane things, a lil Christmas tree and inspiration from his pals, namely Linus, to get Charlie Brown back his Christmas Spirit! So sit down with your children and introduce them to the cartoon specials you grew up with!

      If you're anything like me, I grew up watching several classic Christmas shows with a Charlie Brown Christmas being one of them. I've put off this purchase for several years mostly because I kept forgetting to get it until the holiday season rolled around again. I finally got it. I am very happy with the purchase and am excited that Bluray was an option.

      Not much you can really do to enhance this classic. HDR was very bland and didn't really make much a difference. But I got it for $15 on sale (was cheaper then Blu-ray Version) and it came with some extra episodes on it and for that I jumped on it.

      This is a good movie about a character that wants to do go but every times he tries he fails. His friends always make fun of him but in the end the end of seeing the beautiful he was trying to create in the beginning.

      This is a well packaged set for A Charlie Brown Christmas. Share your childhood with your children with this timeless classic. (just remember to remind them that "Blockhead" is not nice to say to someone)

      Every year, I would make sure I knew when A Charlie Brown Christmas was coming on TV so I could record it. Then a few years ago, I bought it on iTunes. Now it was time to get it on Blu-Ray to watch anytime, in the best quality, on my TV.

      I got this for my Dad for Christmas and didn't even notice it was both the first Christmas movie and the second one. =D Couldn't be happier. =) I ordered this on-line and that was easy, the girl I talked to when I needed to get an update was lovely.

      This is a must see every Christmas to get the real understanding of the holiday. I bought this disc in the event I miss it on T.V. I must watch it to really get into the Christmas spirit.
