Product Description

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (Blu-Ray/DVD Combo)

Amazon.ca

This sweet, heartwarming 1973 offering from the Peanuts gang (and Charles Schultz) once again shows Charlie Brown in a pickle, as his erstwhile friends impose upon the hapless would-be-host to provide a memorable and traditional Thanksgiving feast. And as much as Charlie Brown would rather forget the whole thing, he just can't help but try for fear of being labeled a failure. Ultimately it's up to Snoopy and Woodstock to save Charlie from certain embarrassment, and it falls to Linus to impart to all assembled the true meaning of Thanksgiving. This very special Emmy Award-winning cartoon features the usual sweet unassuming humor that only the Peanuts can provide, along with the melodic Vince Guaraldi score, and is one of those childhood classics meant to be enjoyed again and again. --Robert Lane --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Unlike the timeless 5-star Christmas and Halloween classics, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving falls short. Here the gang has been transplanted from the small-town Midwest with its dark, cold fall and winters to some suburban-type setting where people can walk around in shorts in late-November.
Instead of the earnest adult-like children, we get an attempt at early-70s hip wisecracking. Further severely dating the show to 1973 is the soundtrack, typified by the horrid jazzy blues vocal number "Little Birdy" and a fight snoopy has with an animated lawn chair (segment is total filler).
The voiceovers are distracting too. Although, the actors who did the Christmas and Halloween specials were certainly well into adolescents by the time the Thanksgiving special was made, there was not even an attempt to retain any similarity when hiring the new actors (with the exception of Linus, who was voiced by the brother of the kid who did the Christmas and Halloween specials). They also sound a bit older and (perhaps as a result?)are much more wooden in their delivery.
That being said, there aren't very many Thanksgiving specials out there and it does give a short history of the holiday. It will certainly give the kids something to watch for 25 minutes during halftime.
But if you are expecting the sincerity and magic of the Christmas and Halloween specials, you will be disappointed.

Charlie Brown Thanksgiving has all the fun that you normally expect of a Charlie Brown movie. You get to see Peppermint Patty invite herself and several friends to Charlie Brown's house for Thanksgiving, and then watch him flounder about trying to deal with it. The result is a dinner of junk food ala carte.
Charlie Brown Thanksgiving DVD also comes with a second feature, Voyage of the Mayflower. This is a really great little flick that presents the Charlie Brown characters as participants in the pilgrim's voyage to the new world, their struggle to survive, and the first Thanksgiving. Parents may appreciate the educational aspects of this flick, as well as enjoy it's excellent quality.
Between the two features, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving is definitely value for money. Another great feature, because the features are only 30 minutes, they can work as a great stop-gap to occupy a child for a brief period (such as while you are finishing dinner and they are getting fidgety), without having to cut short a full length movie.

I know I'm sounding like an idiot, but this Charlie Brown holiday video isn't quite up to the normal standards of Peanuts products. The animation is a little off, compared to "Christmas" and "Halloween." And the character voices aren't the same familiar voices as on the other one. The plot is not very complicated, there isn't quite very much to say. There are a few "filler scenes," scenes that seem as if they were put in just to make the movie longer, since the plot wasn't very developed.
And (it must be in Snoopy's imagination), the scene with him fighting with a lawn chair is the most ridiculous thing I've seen in a Peanuts cartoon. Besides Snoopy and Woodstock being able to think like humans, Peanuts cartoons are usually realistic. But seeing a reclining chair suddenly come to life is just a little too unrealistic. There is also a song, I'm guessing it's called "Little Birdy." Since when are there songs (as in, a voice singing, that isn't one of the characters,) in a Peanuts cartoon? Strange.
This one is okay, get it just to have all the holiday videos, but don't expect anything as good as the Peanuts Christmas or Halloween videos. ...

The "Peanuts" TV specials changed the way I celebrate every holiday from Halloween to Arbor Day. I raced home to watch "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" on ABC this year, having not seen it since 1994. I watched it with wide eyes and, the next day, played the tape for my 19 month-old nephew, who learned the word "Snoopy" two weeks ago.
Even to my jaded almost-30 eyes, "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" absolutely rocks. Peanuts TV specials lost a little charm when Vince Guaraldi passed on, but fortunately he scored this one. There's a Woodstock-themed song performed by Jack Sheldon -- not as good as his "Amendment Song" for "The Simpsons" (what is?), but it's hummable.
All the great "Peanuts" moments are here: Lucy's one scene is a football gag; there's a lively remix of Guaraldi's "Linus and Lucy" during the popcorn-and-toast montage; Snoopy climbs out of a mailbox and gets assaulted by a wayard deck chair (it's so *true*!). Linus gives a great speech on the meaning of Chr -- I mean, Thanksgiving. The jive handshake Franklin slips Charlie Brown is adorable in a 1973 kind of way.
My nephew was riveted to the screen for the Snoopy and Woodstock sequence, doubling over in laughter when the ping-pong table folded in half, taking Snoopy with it. These five minutes pleased him so much that I reran that portion of the tape two more times. He kept pointing to the screen and shouting "Doopy!" every fifteen seconds.
Not the best "Peanuts" holiday -- "Christmas" and "Great Pumpkin" are desert-island material -- but if it serves to get my nephew into a lifetime of Charles M Schulz worship, I'll call it the most valuable video in my collection.
