You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a Peanuts special that was released in 1985 that's based on a Broadway musical of the same name. Since it's based on a musical, there's a lot of songs that accompany vignettes, rather than being a special with one storyline. There are some classic songs in this production, such as "Book Report" and "Happiness." While this may not be a "typical" Peanuts special, it's an enjoyable viewing, especially if you enjoy musicals.

This DVD includes a remastered version of the special, as well as a documentary titled, "Animating a Charlie Brown Musical." The documentary goes throug the 20-year history of the Clark Gesner album that evolved into an off-Broadway hit that became the basis for this special. The documentary was interesting to watch, and I learned a bit about this special from watching it. Admittedly, the documentary won't have much appeal for any kids watching this DVD, but it's a nice bonus for the adults who watch it.

I wrote this review after watching a copy of this DVD that my husband and I purchased.
