As the Super Bowl approaches, Snoopy Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts Gang are getting people excited about football with the release of Peanuts Deluxe Edition: Touchdown Charlie Brown! Our family enjoys football, and the kids were tickled to learn we were going to have the opportunity to review a copy of this DVD!
Available from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment this month, this football-inspired title is comprises of the re-mastered, animated TV special, It's Your FIrst Kiss, Charlie Brown, in which the Peanuts gang celebrate homecoming, plus THREE football-themed episodes of The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show.
When our special edition dvd arrived, we were all excited to sit down and watch it! It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown is about homecoming season and Charlie Brown's school. The kids celebrate with a parade, a dance and of course, football! The big game, which is refereed by Snoopy, draws many spectators. Charlie Brown is the team's placekicker and Lucy is the placekick setter. The pressure to win is on but can Lucy control her urge to pull the ball away just as Charlie Brown is about to kick it? I won't give it away, you'll have to watch to find out! :)
Linus and Charlie Brown are also chosen as escorts for the homecoming queen and her court. Charlie Brown is asked to escort the queen, which happens to be a little girl Charlie Brown has been pining for his whole life! He escorts her to the dance floor and kisses her on the cheek. It is an electrifying experience and one that leaves him in a complete blur. It's a very cute episode and one our whole family really enjoyed.
The Peanuts Deluxe Edition: Touchdown Charlie Brown also features three delightful, football inspired episodes from The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show for nearly TWO HOURS of Peanuts and football fun!
With the Super Bowl around the corner, this is a fun collection of episodes our family has really enjoyed. It's one we'll watch over and over again, especially this time of year! If you're looking for some Charlie Brown fun, I would recommend checking it out for yourself!
