Charlie Brown’s All Stars 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition DVD #Review & #Giveaway! (2 Winners) (U.S.) Ends 10/16 #Snoopy #CharlieBrown

Disclosure: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.




THE EMMY®-NOMINATED PEANUTS TELEVISION SPECIAL IS AVAILABLE ON DVD IN A NEW REMASTERED EDITION ON OCTOBER 4, 2016

FROM WARNER BROS. HOME ENTERTAINMENT

It’s the golden anniversary of Charlie Brown’s All Stars, the beloved Peanuts television special, which earned two Primetime Emmy® Award nominations. To mark the occasion, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) will release this delightful story in a deluxe, 50th anniversary edition, completely remastered in beautiful high definition on October 4, 2016. Charlie Brown’s All Stars follows the bittersweet story of Charlie Brown, who won’t give up on trying to bring his baseball team to victory, in spite of facing great criticism from the team’s players. This release will be timed to the culmination of the World Series.

In Charlie Brown’s All Stars, it’s summer and baseball season gets underway. Charlie Brown is put in charge of managing the Peanuts’ baseball team again, which in the past, has only suffered crushing defeat from its opponents. The disillusioned players blame Charlie Brown for the team’s past poor performance. When a sponsor offers Charlie Brown real baseball uniforms and a chance to be part of an actual league, he is thrilled. He believes the new uniforms and acceptance into a real league will motivate his players. His excitement however, soon turns into disappointment when he learns that if he accepts the offer, Snoopy, Lucy, Patty, Violet and Frieda will be kicked off the team because the league’s policy prevents girls and dogs from playing. Poor Charlie Brown, not only is he criticized by his teammates for being a bad manager, he’s now faced with a difficult moral dilemma. Should he accept the uniforms?

“Charlie Brown’s All Stars is a classic. Viewers of all ages will enjoy this endearing story,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation Marketing. She added, “We’re pleased to celebrate 50 years of this heartwarming special with this new release. For any Peanuts fan, this newly remastered edition is a must-have for their collection.”

Charlie Brown’s All Stars first aired in 1966 on CBS. It is the second animated primetime Peanuts special to air on television after A Charlie Brown Christmas. Charlie Brown’s All Stars was nominated for two primetime Emmy® Awards.

We love Charlie Brown and Snoopy! I grew up in southern California where Knott's Berry Farm is located where The Peanuts Gang hangs out, is super popular, and then even created a Camp Snoopy area inside the park with rides just for children, and some were created that adults can go on too! I also grew up watching Charlie Brown cartoons on TV and on VHS with my cousins when we were little. Now I get to share Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang with my children, and I hope that they share them with their children too someday.

  14. Last time I saw a Charlie Brown cartoon was about eight years ago. We had a student visiting from India who wasn't familiar with the American celebration of Halloween and he was watching 'The Great Pumpkin' special and very confused.
