"I purchased this set through amazon and received it today (October 7th, 2010). Prior to purchasing this set, I also owned the standard peanuts holiday dvd set that was released a few years ago. I purchased the blu-ray dvd set because I thought they would be a better quality than the former. Honestly, I do not see any difference in the quality of the blu-ray dvds in comparison to the standard dvd set. My blu-ray player has an upconverter and so the standard dvds are upconverted to a better quality. I reviewed both sets (blu-ray and standard) and honestly could not tell a difference between the two (in terms of quality). So, for those who own the standard dvd set and question whether it is worth the money upgrading to blu-ray, if I were to offer any advice, it would be to save your money...that is unless you're into collecting blu-ray dvds and feel the need to obtain this set for its special features.
To be fair, I found that the special features make up for some of the lack in quality of the blu-ray dvds. It is interesting to learn about the histoy of each holiday specials and how the Christmas special was almost never produced. For the special features and the amount I paid for this set ($34.99), I didn't feel too bad about the purchase. I am disappointed in the quality but found that the special features make up for some of that disappointment.
Again, the quality of the dvds are not as great as I had hoped, but the special features are worth the consideration."
