Charlie Brown/Peanuts Specials - I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown: Remastered Deluxe Edition: Release Date, Bonus Material, Trailer, Cost and Box Art

New release from Warner Brothers includes new-to-DVD Happy New Year, CB special

Posted by David Lambert
    I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown! centers on ReRun, the lovable but ever-skeptical younger brother of Linus and Lucy. It's Christmas vacation and, as usual, ReRun's big sister is stressing him out, so he decides to turn to his best friend, Snoopy, for amusement and holiday cheer. However his faithful but unpredictable beagle companion has plans of his own, giving ReRun reason to ask Snoopy to invite his canine brother Spike for a visit. When Spike shows up, it looks like ReRun will have a dog for Christmas after all... but then the real trouble begins.
In 2004, a year after the animated special first aired on TV, Paramount originally released I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown on DVD. Now Warner Home Video is going back and re-releasing this one in an upgraded version, coming on October 6th. I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown: Remastered Deluxe Edition will contain that special, along with the new-to-DVD special Happy New Year, Charlie Brown as a bonus episode.

Running time is 41 minutes. Also included is a new Featurette, "Sibling Rivalry: Growing Up Van Pelt," about how Charles Schulz came to create ReRun Van Pelt, Lucy and Linus' younger brother. Video is full frame. Audio is English Stereo and Spanish Stereo, and subtitles are in English and Spanish as well. An online trailer is available to preview. Cost for this title is $19.98 SRP, and you can pre-order it right now:
