Peanuts: It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown (DVD) (Deluxe Edition)
The thirteenth installment in the evergreen Charlie Brown animated series,It's The Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown, is a delightful romp through the rites of spring. The running gag that holds this string of episodic misadventures together is Peppermint Patty's futile attempts at explaining how to make Easter eggs to Marcy. Highlights of this rather surreal Peanuts outing include Snoopy's dancing with little bunny rabbits inside a kaleidoscope, Sally heading to the mall to purchase a pair of platform shoes (this video was made in 1974), and Woodstock's lavishly equipped bachelor-pad birdhouse. As with the best of the Peanuts cartoons, this will entertain children and adults alike, and is one of the last of the series to feature a music score by Vince Guaraldi. --Kristian St. Clair --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Itï¿½s still ï¿½Peanuts,ï¿½ so itï¿½s still warm and funny, but itï¿½s not one of the best.
Oddly enough the back-up cartoon on this DVD IS one of the best. ï¿½Itï¿½s Arbor Day, Charlie Brownï¿½ starts out with a explanation of one of the most superfluous holidays imaginable and turns into a hysterical, well-written and wonderfully entertaining story about Charlie Brownï¿½s frequent baseball tribulations. His own team seems out to sabotage him this time, turning his baseball diamond into a garden, right down to the tree in the middle of his pitcherï¿½s mound. Itï¿½s almost as good as ï¿½Peanutsï¿½ gets.
This disc's bonus feature is "It's Arbor Day, Charlie Brown." Sally has to give a report on this obscure holiday, and it gets the gang in the mood to participate. As a surprise to Charlie Brown, his baseball team decides to spruce up the baseball field will all kinds of new plants with surprising and humorous results.
Once again, I've never seen these two specials before getting this disc yet was utterly charmed by them both. While I was a little surprised and disappointed that the Easter one didn't reference the Biblical story ala A Charlie Brown Christmas, that's a minor point. I loved every minute of Arbor Day. It's a more coherent story and has some classic moments. Plus I learned a little more about this holiday. (I confess, my knowledge was about like Sally's at the beginning, so anything was better then nothing.)
If you've bought other Peanuts DVD's you know exactly what to expect here. The picture and sound quality are good, but there aren't any extras.
While extras would be nice, these discs are certainly fun the way they are. Any Peanuts fan will want this disc to continue their collection of these holiday classics.
Programs like these are constant reminders of why we love cartoons in the first place, in that they help us to escape the real world. While a number of strips have accomplished just that, in the category of Sunday comics that have appeared on television, Peanuts is the reigning champion.
