dealspeanuts holiday collection bluray/dvd 6 disc for…


Time for my annual rant about Christmas specials....

If you are a parent, spend the money and BUY DVDs/Blu-rays of ALL the classics. DO NOT watch them on TV.

Over the years, all the specials have been carved up to add additional commercial time. Some of the half hour originals ran 26-27 minutes, and they have been cut down to SUB 20. The hour long ones ran 52-54 minutes and they are now closer to 39. You'll notice entire songs missing, and huge holes in the story.

Just don't do it. Buy or rent a copy and watch them how they were intended. If you MUST, rip them to your computer, go find some classic commercials, and edit them in (Dolly Madison anyone?).


I've grown up with the Peanuts gang. I've been a fan of the comic strip for as long as I can remember, and I've watched A Charlie Brown Christmas every year as well. It's a required Christmas tradition with me. Over the years, I've watched other specials, too.
This collection brings three of their holiday classics to DVD: Great Pumpkin, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Also included are three bonus programs, You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown; The Mayflower Voyages; and It's Christmas Time Again, Charlie Brown. These programs aren't nearly as good as the headliners, but do still provide some fun moments.

If you're a Peanuts fan, you'll enjoy having these DVD's in your collection to enjoy at your leisure every year. Hopefully, Paramount will be smarter with future releases and include more programs and bonus material per disk.


I got this set at a local Walmart last year for $19.95. I'm pretty sure it's still at that price.


I grew up watching these (like most people from our planet.) I had many fond memories. A couple of years ago, after skipping them for several years, I popped my DVDs in again. What is wrong with this series?!?! All they do is yell at each other the entire time. They're worse than congress. I don't think I've seen people tear each other down and yell and scream and insult each other this bad in my entire life.
