Product Description

Amazon.ca

This half-hour Christmas show is one of the truly lovable animated specials in TV history, a status proved by its annual network telecast since 1965. A Charlie Brown Christmas was the first, and best, of a series of programs based on the Charles M. Schulz cartoon strip "Peanuts." Hapless hero Charlie Brown finds himself depressed at Christmastime, searching for the true meaning of the holiday amidst the glitz and commercialism of the modern age. Appointed director of the school holiday pageant, Charlie Brown ventures out with Linus to buy "a great, big, shiny aluminum Christmas tree." Instead they bring back a miserable tree--a real one. A Charlie Brown Christmas shows off the "Peanuts" gang doing what they do best: Lucy is bossy, Snoopy is crazy, Linus is sweet, and Pig Pen is, well, filthy. Instead of using adult actors trying to sound like kids, the production features real children providing the voices, an endearing effect. The jazz music score, composed by Vince Guaraldi, has become a classic in its own right; like so much about this program, it's an unexpected but perfectly right choice. --Robert Horton

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Dvd, but 1960's Collection a better deal... Aug. 18 2010
Format:DVD
I bought this dvd years ago and considered it an absolute essential cartoon to own. However since then the boxed set Peanuts 1960s Collection was released which not only contains the Christmas special but also 5 other Peanuts cartoons from the 1960's (including the Great Pumpkin episode, another classic), and being only a few bucks more than this it is a far better deal. The boxed set doesn't have the other Christmas cartoon on this dvd, the 90's-era "It's Christmastime Again" (which was ok) but in all honesty it's not really missed. I still think this is an excellent dvd to own, but if you want a little more bang for your buck go for the boxed set and you'll really have a good Charlie Brown collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's not Christmas without Charlie Brown Dec 15 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Well let me tell you I am a big fan of A Charlie Brown Christmas! It just puts you in such a good mood! Charlie Brown the loser we all love to love teaches us the real meaning of Christmas with the help of Snoopy, Lucy and all the gang. This just sums up the happiness that Christmas brings to me... And contains the very cool Snoopy Dance! Check it out to help you get in touch with your inner child and find that holiday spirit!

4.0 out of 5 stars I grew up watching this each year. Feb. 14 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This was my first exposure to Charlie Brown outside the comic strip. I was no older than C.B. himself at the time, I've grown older Charlie Brown is still a kid and he's still searching for the meaning of Christmas. And with a little help from his friend Linus Van Pelt and a lot of help from St.Luke he succeeds. I won this in a holiday contest but if I had the money, I'd gladly go out & buy it, this is one of those videos that's too good to just rent, you gotta have it to keep. The label says it all "a Peanuts© classic" and it is.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just a 30 Minute Cartoon, Or More? Dec 3 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Well, I was never really a big Peanuts fan. But, this deserves special attention. From the start, Charlie grabs us. The truth is that many people get depressed around Christmas; and since Charlie feels that no one likes him, he especially gets depressed. (Holidays always seem to rub it in if we feel alone.) Also, he is disturbed at the huge commercial aspects of Christmas. Charlie is then called upon to direct a Christmas play and get a tree for the play. It is clear that the other children are distant from Charlie, and it is also clear that they expect a tree that will reflect the commercialized aspect of Christmas. He takes a stand and buys the tree that seems to need a friend. Linus' role is very well done here. Notice he does not criticize the tree itself or Charlie's intentions! But he is concerned that Charlie will be taunted for this. The next scene is done well. Charlie tried (even if unkowingly) to bring the true meaning of Christmas into a crowd that concentrated on the commercial aspects. As Linus fears, Charlie was in fact taunted and mocked for carrying the true meaning of Christmas in a commercial society. When Charlie is mocked, Linus (who also seemed to be carrying the true meaning of Christmas) shows bravery and confronts everyone with the true meaning of Christmas. It is almost as if he carried it, but was afraid to unleash it; and when he saw Charlie show bravery that he would be mocked for, he felt he had an obligation to act. Through this, the mood of the children change. So, Charlie and Linus carry the true meaning of Christmas in a society that does not; Charlie is mocked and taunted; Linus feels compelled to step in; the mood of the whole gang changes for the better. Even if you don't really care for The Peanuts, you should watch this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Annual must see for Peanuts fans. Dec 17 1998
Format:VHS Tape
Yes, it's campy. Yes, it has sub-standard animation. But, you can't beat the feeling you get when watching it. This special takes me back to my younger years every time I see it. I have never seen an aluminum Christmas tree, but I always marvel at the sight of a lot with dozens of them.
