This is America, Charlie Brown DVD Set

Category: Blu-ray's and DVD's


Celebrate the history and achievements of America with the Peanuts gang. This is America, Charlie Brown is a fun-filled set of memorable events that made up the country, all told through the eyes of the little Peanuts characters: Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Sally, Snoopy, Franklin, Peppermint Patty, Marci, Pigpen, and others.


The episodes include: “The Mayflower Voyagers,” “The Birth of the Constitution,” “The Wright Brothers at Kitty Hawk,” “The NASA Space Station,” “The Building of the Transcontinental Railroad,” “The Great Inventors,” “The Smithsonian and the Presidency,” and “The Music and Heroes of America.” In each of these adorable episodes, the kids take on the impressive accomplishments with their own flair.


As the gang ventures forth on The Mayflower, everyone gets seasick while traveling to America. And Lucy, with her usual attitude, wants to find the suggestion box to complain about the voyage! Once finally on land, the kids learn from the Indians how to plant corn – maize – and work the land.


When the gang is sent to the Space Station, Lucy is in charge, obviously. PigPen tests out the shower facilities, Franklin observes the personal interactions, and Charlie Brown and Snoopy must go on a spacewalk to fix the station. Of course, this all takes place in a dream Linus has while preparing for his school’s contest in which the kids build their own replica of the Space Station. Guess who wins? I’ll give you a clue: he has a big nose and paws!


What makes all these episodes endearing is that they focus on something real and important, yet present them through the world of the Peanut gang, and let’s face it, no one looks at life the way these kids do. They are timeless, innocent, creative, funny, intense, and utterly adorable. This is an entertaining way to impart some important lessons while at the same time adding a great deal of humor and whimsy to the historical events. And, who better to lead the way than Lucy Van Pelt? She could lead a Seal Team Six unit, while running for “Princess.”


Through the Peanuts gang, the wonders of America are explored for both the enjoyment of kids and adults. The gang is timeless and continues to have appeal to all ages. These are episodes generations can watch together, and everyone will enjoy the antics of the gang.


This is America, Charlie Brown is a enjoyable way to share the fun of the gang and the events of this great country. Gather the family together for some “interesting” looks at the history of America.
