Peanuts Holiday 4K

When the weather starts to turn crisp and the leaves start to fall, you know you're in for three months in a row of...Charlie Brown?

If you had the right kind of upbringing, then that's how you think. There's a whole generation of us out there who had their childhood holidays shaped by the television specials that came with them. (This is back in the day when they only came on once a year, did not repeat, were not recorded on any medium, and could not be purchased. Prehistoric, I know.) Chief amont those specials were the jazz-filled comforting animated cartoons of Charle's M. Schulz's PEANUTS characters.

Starting with October, it was IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN. A month later, it was popcorn and jellybeans for A CHARLIE BROWN THANKSGIVING, all leading up to the big kahuna of the trilogy, A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS.

Of course now all three of these specials can be acquired easily for leisurely viewing. No need to spread the word from friend to friend that you saw the ad in this week's TV Guide. And now that experience has been kicked up a notch with the 4K ULTRA HD release from Warner Brothers of the PEANUTS HOLIDAY COLLECTION: DELUXE EDITION. This set contains all three of the aforementioned specials, as well as newer episodes:

  • "It's Magic, Charlie Brown"
  • "Charlie Brown's All-Stars"
  • "The Mayflower Voyagers"
  • "Play It Again, Charlie Brown"
  • "It's Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown"
  • "It's Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown"

Each special also comes with its own bonus feature, giving you a behind the scenes look at the making of all three of these family classics. This set has everything to recreate the childhood experience except the vintage Dolly Madison snack cake commercials.

This set contains three 4K Ultra HD discs and three standard BD discs. Additionally, it also contains a code to add the features to your Ultraviolet digital library so you can watch them on your portable device wherever you go.

So get ready to see Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, Lucy, and the rest of the PEANUTS gang as never before -- in vivid 4K color and quality!
