Itís The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown Ė Remastered Deluxe Edition (Warner Home Video)


Picture: C+†††† Sound: C+†††† Extras: B-†††† Main Program: B



Even though the previous edition of Itís The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown that Paramount had in circulation for a while was a nice DVD, it is now out of print and has been succeeded by a new, upgraded version as part of Warner Home Videoís fun reissue series of animated Charlie Brown shows.It is also one of the titles we happened to have covered before, so here is the review of that disc:





The new edition also continues Warnerís nice paperboard slipcases with nice semi-metallic color, but the best part is that the episodes have been upgraded and though this has some better definition and color than the previous DVD, that DVD was not bad and so the improvement is marginal.Also, we get Dolby Digital 2.0 and not 1.0 Mono, something that was not always better than the pervious DVDs in the reissues.


As for extras, you get more this time, but in place of the very entertaining Youíre Not Elected, Charlie Brown from 1972 which deserves to be reissued on one of these discs, Warner and the makers have added the more befitting Itís Magic, Charlie Brown and a fine new documentary about the making of Great Pumpkin entitled We Need a Blockbuster, Charlie Brown that everyone will enjoy.
