5.0 out of 5 stars Good Dvd, but 1960's Collection a better deal...
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Just a 30 Minute Cartoon, Or More?
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...

This review is from: A Charlie Brown Christmas (Remastered Deluxe Edition) (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

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
By 
Mike Hurley (Lansing, MI, USA) - See all my reviews
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
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
By 
This review is from: Charlie Brown Xmas (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic that never grows old., Feb. 8 2014

This review is from: A Charlie Brown Christmas (Remastered Deluxe Edition) (DVD)
With the special spirit of Christmas being expunged from most media shows nowadays, it's so beautiful to watch this little special. The feeling of no Christmas cards, or not many, the over commercialization, it's all here in this precious little gem, and the true meaning of Christmas, not over stated, is the final star atop this gem. I am delighted that you can now buy the Charlie Brown Christmas tree for real...my son has one.
