Peanuts: EMMY Honored Collection on DVDCategory: Blu-ray's and DVD's
Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Schroeder, Sally, Peppermint Patty, Marci, and of course Snoopy have been part of our lives forever. The Peanuts gang has entertained us in the newspapers, in books, on Broadway, and on TV for decades and a new feature film is about to hit the screens. Peanuts: EMMY Honored Collection is a DVD set filled with plenty of fun from the loveable gang with laughs and entertainment for the entire family.
Eleven shows comprise this delightful two-disc collection. The stories feature all of the characters we have come to love through the years. You’re the Greatest, Charlie Brown (1979), She’s a Good Skate, Charlie Brown (1980), It’s Magic, Charlie Brown (1981), Someday You’ll Find Her, Charlie Brown (1981), Is this Goodbye, Charlie Brown? (1983), Life is a Circus, Charlie Brown (1980), What Have We Learned, Charlie Brown? (1983), It’s Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown (1984), Snoopy’s Getting Married, Charlie Brown (1985), Why, Charlie Brown, Why? (1990), and You’re a Good Sport, Charlie Brown (1975) showcase the fun and innocence of these kids as they face the obstacles of life.
There are running storylines through the history of Peanuts like Charlie Brown trying to kick the football only to have it pulled away at the last minute by Lucy. Well, hang onto your hats because he actually did kick it one time. Check out It’s Magic, Charlie Brown. He did kick the ball, but he was invisible at the time and Lucy said it didn’t count. Of course. And Marci’s crush on Charlie Brown is evident in You’re the Greatest, Charlie Brown. Snoopy’s alter egos are front and center. After all, he’s the Masked Marvel, the WWI Flying Ace, and Flashbeaggle. Plus he also takes a turn at being the Great Houndini and tests out his magic abilities. And he turns into Hugo the Great for a circus act. This little pooch has a variety of personalities and sidelines.
We all have our favorite characters. And these little kids all have their young crushes. Lucy loves Schroeder, Sally adores her “Sweet Baboo” Linus, and Peppermint Patty enjoys her friendship with Charlie Brown. Whether Linus and his blanket, Schroeder and his piano, or just the playfulness of the entire gang entertains you, this is a “must have” for all Peanuts fans.
Peanuts: EMMY Honored Collection has over 300 fun-filled Peanuts minutes packed into the two-discs. While not every movie won an EMMY award, they were all nominated and recognized by the industry. This is indeed a great collection from the Peanuts gang, honoring all the kids – and Snoopy – as they try their best to get through whatever life throws at them.
