But […]

by Weathermanon January 6, 2012
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.

However, I am convinced that Warner Home Video’s Peanuts DVD release strategy has been specifically […]

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

by Ed Liuon March 30, 2011
