The lovable characters from the popular comic strip by Charles M. Schulz appear in this full-length feature. The perennial failure Charlie Brown attends the National Spelling Bee and manages the worst sandlot team in the history of baseball. Linus loses and retrieves his security blanket. Snoopy the beagle dances wildly and plays shortstop. The irascible Lucy Van Pelt tricks Charlie Brown into kicking the football, but at the last minute she pulls it back and sends him flying onto his back. Although he loses the spelling bee, his friends gladly welcome Charlie Brown back to town upon his return. Nearly two-dozen songs are included. The characters remain true to the original works of Schulz, and great care was taken in matching the appropriate voices to the character's personalities. This is the first of many successful animated features of the gang from Peanuts.

WOW...is about all I can say about this. It is amazing what can be put onto DVD now and not lose quality. This is a superb selection if I may say so. No matter what age, this video is for everyone who wants to get in touch with their inner child. I definitely recommend this for grade school students who are studying grammar. I remember watching this when I was a child and it brought back so many memories. Definitely worth every cent.
