1 review about Peanuts - This Is America, Charlie Brown

These may not necessarily be entertaining for kids, but they're educational

In the late 1980's, eight Peanuts specials were produced where the Peanuts gang were able to become a part of historical events. Each disc contains four of the specials. Disc one contains "The Mayflower Voyagers" (which is also available on the original DVD pressing of A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving), "The Birth of the Constitution," "The Wright Brothers at Kitty Hawk," and "The NASA Space Station." Disc two contains "The Building of the Transcontinental Railroad," "The Great Inventors," "The Smithsonian and the Presidency," and "The Music and Heroes of America."

Unfortunately, all you get on these DVDs are the specials themselves. There are absolutely no special features included. I personally think there were plenty of options that Paramount could have used as bonus features (such as interviews with individuals who worked on these specials, commentary tracks, or trivia that ties in to the topics presented in each special).

The specials themselves are very informative, but they definitely have a different style when compared to the typical Peanuts specials. Expect younger children to become bored with these specials rather quickly. Older children can probably better understand them and can probably have a better appreciation for them, but even they may grumble a little when watching these.

I applaud what was trying to be accomplished by producing these specials, but I think adult fans of the Peanuts will overall have a greater appreciation and enjoyment for them than children will.

I wrote this review of the copy of this set that my husband and I purchased.

What did you think of this review?
