What A Nightmare, Charlie Brown (1978) is the classic entry making its debut on DVD in this set and is the most experimental as only Snoopy and Charlie Brown go into the world at large unprotected and have to deal with the experience of displacement.This is a highly underrated outing that is long overdue for DVD and

 

 

The 1.33 X 1 color image and Dolby Digital Mono on all shows are once again upgraded, new transfers that look and sound as good as they are going to on this format, as has been the case in all of Warnerís reissues of the Peanuts specials.Extras include previews for other Peanuts releases on DVD and another great new special: Youíre Groovy, Charlie Brown: A Look At Peanuts In The 70ís (18 minutes) about the breakout of the Peanuts franchise in that decade in a way no comic strip or few commercial franchise properties at the time has ever experienced.Itís been great ever since and long after Schultzís left us, the characters are stronger than ever.

 

That makes this yet another great set worth adding to your collection.
