The HE'S YOUR DOG, CHARLIE BROWN DVD includes two Peanuts tv specials, HE'S YOUR DOG, CHARLIE BROWN and LIFE IS A CIRCUS, CHARLIE BROWN.
First airing on tv in 1968, HE'S YOUR DOG, CHARLIE BROWN finds Charlie sending Snoopy off to an obedience camp at the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm so that he will become more obedient. Instead, Snoopy moves in with Peppermint Patty. Snoopy thinks things are better with Peppermint Patty than with Charlie Brown and stays with her. In the meantime, Charlie Brown tries to get his dog back.
LIFE IS A CIRCUS, CHARLIE BROWN first aired on tv in 1980 and is a nice match in theme to HE'S YOUR DOG, CHARLIE BROWN. In this special, Snoopy falls in love with a poodle named Fifi who's a circus dog. Snoopy follows her into the big top and soon becomes a part of the show. The duo become the hit of the big top show. However, Fifi's owner has some plans for the two dogs that makes Snoopy realize that perhaps being a star in show business isn't exactly what he thought it would be.
This DVD also includes the short featurette, "Snoopy's Home Ice: The Story of the Redwood Empire Ice Arena." The special really isn't very interesting and is probably the weakest of any of the extra features included on a "Peanuts" DVD. It doesn't provide any new information about Peanuts and is really just a featuring showing the Ice Arena that Schulz built (where he ate breakfast at almost everyday).
For those who are unfamiliar with Peanuts, you'll want to watch a different Peanuts DVD first. However, for everyone else, HE'S YOUR DOG, CHARLIE BROWN is a DVD you will probably enjoy watching. It's the first time in the U.S. that LIFE IS A CIRCUS, CHARLIE BROWN has been available on DVD.
