More Holiday Fun with the Peanuts Gang

"Easter's coming, and the gang is trying to get ready for it in different ways. Sally wants a new pair of shoes. Peppermint Patty is trying to teach Marcy how to color eggs. Snoopy wants to do a good deed for Woodstock. Charlie Brown is upset by the site of Christmas pre-sales at the local department store. And Linus is telling everyone about the Easter Beagle who rises up on Easter morning to give eggs to all the children. Will this familiar sounding tale have the same outcome as the Great Pumpkin?This disc's bonus feature is "It's Arbor Day, Charlie Brown." Sally has to give a report on this obscure holiday, and it gets the gang in the mood to participate. As a surprise to Charlie Brown, his baseball team decides to spruce up the baseball field will all kinds of new plants with surprising and humorous results.Once again, I've never seen these two specials before getting this disc yet was utterly charmed by them both. While I was a little surprised and disappointed that the Easter one didn't reference the Biblical story ala A Charlie Brown Christmas, that's a minor point. I loved every minute of Arbor Day. It's a more coherent story and has some classic moments. Plus I learned a little more about this holiday. (I confess, my knowledge was about like Sally's at the beginning, so anything was better then nothing.)If you've bought other Peanuts DVD's you know exactly what to expect here. The picture and sound quality are good, but there aren't any extras.While extras would be nice, these discs are certainly fun the way they are. Any Peanuts fan will want this disc to continue their collection of these holiday classics."
I think this movie is awesome!

"Don't believe the "bad press!" I think this mini-movie is hysterical. Woodstock's "groovy pad" is the ultimate. And you can't help but love the fact that you end up wanting to smack Marcy for being so dense. My friends and I (average age - 25) love "It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown." I definitely recommend it for any Peanuts fan."
A classic, enjoyable Peanuts special

""Easter Beagle" is one of the classic Peanuts TVspecials, and still makes for fun viewing, even more than a quartercentury after its first broadcast. Although the Easter theme seems a bit tenuous at points, we and our kids enjoy watching the Peanuts gang's antics. Indeed, some of the "surreal" bits (such as the dancing in the department store) are some of the kids' favorite scenes. And Peppermint Patty's repeated "AAAAAAUUGH!" at Marcie's various egg-cooking mistakes never fails to throw our 6-year-old into the giggles. END"
Snoopy Spring Begins

"I have always felt a little let down after the Holidays are over and the long winter hangs around for a few months... but when it's spring Time there is no better way to put a smile on your face than watching Easter Beagle Charlie Brown. Every Good Friday before Easter my family watches this delightful show and colors eggs. Not to mention... it will six months until you can watch the Great Pumpkin, so watch Marci scramble the Easter Eggs, Snoopy Dance with bunnies, and Woodstock decorate his fancy new Bird house."
