DVD DESCRIPTION

christmas talesTis the season for the cheer and charm of the Peanuts kids – and this delight special offers five segments full of unforgettable moments. Snoopy works as a bell-ringer to raise money and tries making peace with the ferocious cat next door. Linus strives to strike the right tone in his letter to Santa – and his friendship with an indecisive girl at school. Sally’s idea about gift giving and the identity of Santa may be unusual – but her strange notion about how to obtain a Christmas tree surprisingly does the job. Lucy tries awfully hard to be nice…and still coax everyone around her to buy her presents. Charlie Brown and Sally wait up for Santa (a surprisingly short man), who spreads Christmas gift cheer further than they had thought. Make merry!

MY REVIEW

Growing up with the Peanuts Gang I’m pretty familiar with all of their episodes. However, in Charlie Brown’s Christmas Tales I was pleasantly surprised to see there was one that I missed . . . “Is This Goodbye, Charlie Brown?” In this touching tale, Lucy and Linus are moving and the gang is forced to deal with the pending loss. It even made me sad because I just never imagined anyone leaving the group. However, everything ended up just the way it should be.

Even though these are just excerpts and not the full length episodes, it was still a great way to enjoy the Peanuts Gang in a short amount of time. I think it’s a great addition to our Peanuts library and my kids loved watching it over and over again.
