Replaced VHS tapes

by Ed Ball on 11/10/2008

We bought this collection to replace three ailing VHS tapes in those big old plastic cases, so we got better quality video and audio, saved space in our video drawer, and got three bonus episodes. Great deal!

Review [Christmas] Charles Schultz cast the gold standard of annual holiday classics with his 1965 creation of A Charlie Brown Christmas. This animated, made-for-TV special features all the familiar Peanuts characters...Lucy, Snoopy, Schroeder, Linus, Sally, Pig-pen, and Woodstock all make appearances. However, the enduring popularity of this holiday classic stems not from its original storyline, but rather its vivid invocation of childhood nostalgia and memorable Christmas music. It seems everyone on earth has heard the song the characters sing in the closing credits, and it's become a Christmas classic in-and-of itself...For those who need refreshing, because I don't know anyone who hasn't seen it, A Charlie Brown Christmas covers title character Charlie Brown's search for the true meaning of Christmas...Simply put, A Charlie Brown Christmas is a breath of fresh air -- a thoughtful, funny, and highly entertaining show which the entire family can enjoy. It connects parents and children through the shared experience of its annual holiday viewing, and parents don't have to worry about the foul language and adult content that so often permeates today's television programs. Overall, A Charlie Brown Christmas is as close to perfect as a Christmas television special can be.

Review [Pumpkin] The third animated Peanuts television special (which originally aired in 1966) follows the exploits of Charlie Brown and his friends. When it starts, Lucy and her younger brother Linus are carrying home a pumpkin to carve while everyone else is getting their costumes ready for the big night -- Halloween. Everyone, that is, except Linus. Instead of heading out in a costume to go trick or treating, Linus is writing a letter to 'The Great Pumpkin' in hopes that he'll be able to convince him to rise out of his mystical pumpkin patch that night and deliver the mother-load of toys to all those who believe in him...The problem is, no one believes in him. Except Linus...The whole half hour special is just insanely cute. Not cute in the crappy kind of way, but cute in the really cool and completely nostalgic kind of way. The kind of cute that doesn't make you gag but which makes you feel good inside and which makes you a little bit happier for having experienced it. Watching It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is akin to hanging out with a playful puppy -- it's always fun and it never gets tiresome...It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown remains a beloved Halloween classic because it's fun, it's funny, it's cute, and it's just really well done. Kids of all ages can enjoy it just as easily today as they could in 1966 and it really has stood the test of time.
