'Charlie Brown's Christmas Tales'
(Wesley Singerman, Serena Berman, Corey Padnos, Megan Taylor Harvey, Chrystopher Ryan Johnson, et al / DVD / NR / (2002) 2010 / WarnerBros.)
Overview:'Charlie Brown's Christmas Tales' is a series of Christmas-themed animated stories, in which each of the beloved PEANUTS characters star in his or her own charming animated vignette. Bonus episode: Is This Goodbye, Charlie Brown - New-to-DVD! Linus must break the devastating news that his family is moving. Charlie Brown and the gang make their goodbyes and prepare for Linus and Lucy's departure.
DVD Verdict: ''Christmas Tales is a sweet group of five holiday shorts which in total are a brief eighteen minutes long. Note that these shorts are the same ones included as a bonus on the original version of the 'I Want a Dog For Christmas, Charlie Brown' DVD. They have been removed from the remastered edition of Dog for Christmas, I suppose in preparation for this release.
Personally, I loved 'Charlie Brown Christmas Tales.' I love that they put Lydia in as I love Sally's funny voice ... and, of course, I love Snoopy. Also the bonus episode, 'Is This Goodbye, Charlie Brown' is great fun too. Sure it's a little melancholy at times, with the Peanuts gang saying goodbye and adjusting the idea of friends moving away, but it's not an emotional roller coaster like the 'Snoopy, Come Home' story!
