The 60's collection contains the most classic of the Peanuts cartoons. Some are misses (like Charlie Brown's All-Stars) but even they're interesting as, if you're my age, you probably saw these as a kid once or twice before they stopped playing them, which makes them interesting to view, even if they're not all as well done as A Charlie Brown Christmas.

You can't beat the classics . . . and this collection proves it. The Peanuts gang literally sprang to life on our television screens in 1965 with "A Charlie Brown Christmas" ~ and the rest is history! This collection of the original specials is a lot of fun to watch . . . well done Charles M. Schulz ~ and thanks for the memories.

Anyone who grew up in the '80's knows that Peanuts is a staple for any DVD/BluRay collection. The price of this product is great. No complaints.

A Review From The Peanut Gallery March 14 2009
By Reconnecting To My Childhood - Published on
This 2-disc set is going to be released on July 7th, 2009. It contains the classic heartwarming Charlie Brown/Peanuts Specials that aired from 1965-1969, which are all six specials that aired in the sixties. Those specials are:

A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
The perennial Christmas classic about the down on his luck Charlie Brown and his adorably pathetic Christmas Tree. This is where the Peanuts Specials all began.

Charlie Brown's All-Stars (1966)
It's ball season and Charlie Brown faces a moral dilemma when he can get his team new uniforms and a shot at being part of an official league if he is willing to kick Lucy, Violet, Patty, Frieda and Snoopy off the team.

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966)
Another perennial classic about poor Charlie Brown getting more trick's than treat's and ever optimistic Linus spending the night in a humble pumpkin patch. He believes in the Great Pumpkin.

You're In Love, Charlie Brown (1967)
Charlie Brown just wants the courage to meet his crush, the little red haired girl. When Linus and Peppermint Patty try to help things only get worse for good old Chuck.

He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown (1968)
Snoopy is supposed to return to Daisy Hill Puppy Farm for obedience training but winds up at the house of Peppermint Patty instead. Will Charlie Brown get his dog pal to come back home?

It Was A Short Summer Charlie Brown (1969)
At summer camp the boys are losing everything to the girls and putting up with poor conditions. Will the boys be able to prove themselves as winner's before the end of the summer? Maybe some help from the Masked Marvel (aka Snoopy) can do the trick.

Five of these six specials were either Emmy nominated or winning. Here they are being presented with remastered picture and sound quality, and on top of that the last two specials have never appeared on DVD before this. The set also includes a documentary, "The Maestro of Menlo Park - Profiling Composer Vince Gauraldi", which takes time to look at the life of the jazz musician who wrote the classic 'Linus and Lucy' Theme as well as other peanuts music.

There have now been forty-one specials in the Peanuts franchise and I'm hoping that they will work on releasing them all in these sort of chronological sets. This set is great for those who haven't bought the other Peanuts releases yet or fans that don't mind double dipping knowing that this time if these releases continue they will be in for a complete set.

All these specials are great for those looking to relive childhood memories or share wholesome entertainment with their children while teaching them core values. I understand television has to evolve to reflect the current times but I wish more current shows could show half the moral undertones found here in these specials. Luckily with this DVD set those interested in wholesome family entertainment can now share these six classic specials with their children.

Classic Peanuts July 6 2009
By TMC - Published on
Getting right down to business: You watch two of these every year for certain-- Charlie Brown Christmas and Great Pumpkin, you know them, you love them, and your VHS copy is worn out beyond belief. That alone is reason to get the 1960s Collection, but what you don't know may be even more compelling...

"He's Your Dog" and "Short Summer" are new to DVD but well worth the wait. If you've seen them before, you'll love watching them again (what can I say, they're timeless!) and you'll be loaning it out or inviting your cousins/nieces/nephews/grandkids over to watch them.

Filled with life lessons, a classic humor that we all pay tribute to in one way or another and the Peanuts gang, this is an essential collection.

Classic Peanuts! July 7 2009
By Tyler Cruzen - Published on
This DVD is packed with 6 classic animation specials from the 1960's. Even though I was not around when these aired, I have fond memories of each and everyone of theses specials as a kid.

Classic Peanuts!!!

Disc 1 claims to have 4 features but only has 3. The 4th feature is actually on the 2nd disc. So it boils down to 3 features per disc.

Now only if they would release more collections which would include:
Bon Voyage Charlie Brown
This is America Charlie Brown
Race for Your Life Charlie Brown and many more...

The Essential Peanuts - Like Love, This Is All You Need! July 8 2009
By F. Mugavero - Published on
Verified Purchase
These shows are the absolute best of the Peanuts TV specials - this and the movie A BOY NAMED CHARLIE BROWN (1969) are all you need.

Everything has a Golden Period and the 60's was it for Peanuts. There was an almost hypnotic quality to these early specials - they take their time, are more character-oriented than plot-oriented, and the humor is droll and intelligent. This philosophical bent is what makes them the perfect video equivalent of the classic comic strip, and you can feel the care and significant thought put into every moment - from Vince Guaraldi's iconic jazz to the wonderful, natural voices of the original child actors, who were never to be matched in later versions.

A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS and IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN are well known and loved, deservedly so, but it may be, unless you're old like me, you haven't seen YOU'RE IN LOVE, HE'S YOUR DOG, IT WAS A SHORT SUMMER, or ALL STARS. I grew up on them, even had the corresponding books. My personal favorite would be the Snoopy-centric DOG. But love of the little redhaired girl, the whole gang at camp and Charlie Brown's baseball woes make for clever, funny, poignant stories that are all surprisingly timeless even 40 years later.

It's true, it would have been nice if they had given us more special features - including the documentaries from earlier editions, but these are the absolute cream of the crop, the best Peanuts you're going to find. You can skip the 70's and 80's, it was never the same again...

But don't hesitate for a second, buy this one!

A wonderful remastered collection of the classic TV specials from the 1960s July 10 2009
By Brandon Cozart - Published on
Some things, though they become dated and quaint, still remain classic and timeless. Charles Schultz's Peanuts TV specials are no exception to this. Every year I look forward to one of the major television networks airing the Peanuts holiday specials, especially A Charlie Brown Christmas and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

Recently, Warner Brothers has released a remastered collection of the 1960's specials on a two-disc set. This set contains six half-hour specials, each disc containing three (although the box erroneously indicates that there are four on the first disc and two on the second disc). Also included in this set is a featurette profiling the composer of the Peanuts music, including the famed "Linus and Lucy" track, Vince Guaraldi.

The specials are included in chronological order, and the last two have never before been released on DVD. Here are the specials included:

A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
The classic, beloved story of the Peanuts gang's Christmas pageant and Charlie Brown's quest to rediscover the true meaning of Christmas.

Charlie Brown's All-Stars (1966)
Charlie Brown and his hapless baseball team can't catch a break on the diamond. Ever the shrewd manager, Charlie Brown believes new uniforms and entry into a real league will provide the inspiration his team needs to get over the hump. However, there's a catch: he must get rid of the girls on the team, as well as Snoopy. How will he handle such a conundrum?

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966)
Another beloved Peanuts holiday special. This time it's Halloween and time for the gang to go trick-or-treating. The dumb luck of Charlie Brown, however, will bring him more tricks than treats. Meanwhile, Linus patiently awaits the arrival of the Great Pumpkin, a lesser-known holiday gift-bringer.

You're in Love, Charlie Brown (1967)
It's the end of the school year and Charlie Brown is distressed about not being able to have fun like the rest of his friends. After complaining and venting to Linus, Charlie Brown realizes that his frustrations are due to his as-yet unrequited affections for The Little Red-Haired Girl, and it becomes his quest to talk to her (interesting sidenote, this is the first Peanuts special to feature the "trombone voice" of the schoolteacher).

He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown (1968)
The gang has become frustrated with Snoopy and his disobedient way, so Charlie Brown decides to send him back to the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm for obedience training. With Snoopy, however, nothing ever goes as planned.

It was a Short Summer, Charlie Brown (1969)
The Peanuts kids all go to summer camp, but the boys have a rough time. Unfavorable conditions and repeated losses to the girls in sports get them down, but everything could change based on the outcome of the wrist-wrestling match between Lucy and Snoopy "The Masked Marvel."

Since the 1960's there have been dozens of additional Peanuts TV specials, but there's something about these first few that keep us coming back to them time and time again. This is an excellent, inexpensive collection of these timeless treasures.
