CBS DVD and Paramount will re-issue two classic Peanuts TV specials this summer.
On Tuesday, September 6th, CBS DVD and Paramount will re-issue the classic Peanuts specials Peanuts: A Boy Named Charlie Brown and Peanuts: Snoopy Come Home on Blu-ray. It marks the first time that either special has ever been released on Blu-ray. Peanuts: A Boy Named Charlie Brown is the first of the Peanuts specials to ever be aired. It follows Charlie Brown as he unwittingly becomes his school’s representative in the national spelling bee. It all begins as Charlie sets out to disprove his fellow students who believe that he can’t even win the school spelling bee. Along the way Charlie Brown’s best friend Linus deals with the disappearance of his beloved blanket as he tries to help Charlie Brown prepare for the spelling bee. And back home scheming Lucy plans to take advantage of Charlie Brown’s potential success by naming herself his agent. Of course things don’t turn out quite as she, Charlie Brown, or anyone else expect. But the special still leaves audiences with smiles on their faces and feeling such support for everybody’s favorite underdog.
Peanuts: Snoopy Come Home presents a completely different story. When Snoopy receives a letter in the mail, he suddenly leaves his doghouse and embarks on a cross-country journey. The reason for Snoopy’s journey is a mystery to everybody including Charlie Brown. That is until the contents of the letter are revealed. What comes next is a deeply moving story that will move audiences of all ages to tears of joy.
Peanuts: A Boy Named Charlie Brown and Peanuts: Snoopy Come Home will both be available on Blu-ray on Tuesday, September 6th. Both titles are expected to retail for MSRP of $24.99.
