In “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown”, the entire gang is up to something new. Instead of the normal narrative they are are acting out the various comedy sketches from the original live-action musical and each one is more enjoyable then the last. The emphasis in this special is the music, so if you are fan of the live-action version you might be disappointed that some parts have been cut out. This disappointment should fade quickly as you bask in the glow of the original characters performing the well loved songs.
Charlie Brown has never pitched a winning baseball game. He’s never been able to keep a kite in the air or win a game of checkers and he’s certainly never successfully punted a football. Charlie Brown may be a loveable loser but he’s still managed to capture the hearts of viewers as well as those of his Peanuts pals. To show their appreciation, Lucy, Linus, Sally, Snoopy, and the rest of the gang pay tribute to “good ol’ Chuck” in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown Deluxe Edition.
Everyone’s favorite “blockhead” finally gets the recognition he deserves via a series of endearing skits mixed with a collection of captivating songs from Clark Gesner’s hit Broadway show. The repertoire includes such unforgettable performances as “Happiness,” “The Kite,” “Suppertime,” “T-E-A-M,” “Book Report” and much more. It’s the Peanuts gang at their very best!
The DVD also includes:
- “Animating a Charlie Brown Musical – This documentary style featurette explores the twenty-year journey of the 1967 Clark Gesner album that became a Broadway hit and finally an animated TV special.
