"Happiness Is ... Peanuts: Friends Forever": A Very Sad Sack of Episodes

Hey, look! It’s another Peanuts collection! Ahhhh, Peanuts, for those times when you really need a dip into the nostalgia pool. Unfortunately it’s more of a nostalgia kiddie pool than anything else. Friends Forever brings together one 30-minute TV special from 1968, You’re In Love Charlie Brown, and an episode of The Charlie Brown and […]

"Happiness Is ... Peanuts Snow Days": It's Not a Bad DVD, Charlie Brown!

A few years ago, Happiness Is … Peanuts Snow Days would have been released as a deluxe edition DVD titled She’s a Good Skate, Charlie Brown, with an episode of The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show as the bonus feature. However, I am convinced that Warner Home Video’s Peanuts DVD release strategy has been specifically […]

Review: "Snoopy's Adventures", "Yo Gabba Gabba! Circus", & "Heroes of Bikini Bottom"

The Happiness Is..Peanuts: Snoopy’s Adventures DVD has a title well out of proportion to its slight contents. This 46 minute disc contains one Snoopy-centric episode of 1985’s The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show and the TV special Snoopy’s Getting Married, Charlie Brown from the same year. Those familiar with the Peanuts TV specials from that […]

"Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown" - And So Is This New DVD Movie

I freely admit that jaundiced skepticism was my initial reaction to the announcement of Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown, the first new Peanuts animated special in 5 years and the first with no direct involvement by the famed strip’s creator Charles Schulz. I’ll even admit that the phrase “cash grab” flew through my […]

"Peanuts Deluxe Holiday Collection" Blu-rays: One Classic, One Great, and One Turkey

If the Peanuts animated specials are perennials on TV, it seems that Warner Brothers is intent on making them perennials on home video as well. To be sure, they deserve much credit for taking away the license to Peanuts from Paramount and pushing out wonderfully remastered editions of beloved specials like A Charlie Brown Christmas […]

Lee Mendelson on "A Charlie Brown Christmas"

The Washington Post‘s Comic Riffs weblog has spoken with veteran producer Lee Mendelson about A Charlie Brown Christmas, which is commemorating its 45th anniversary since its first airing in 1965.
