A Boy Named Charlie Brown
By Lando Da Pimp

A Boy Named Charlie Brown, was the first of the four animated features of the Peanuts gang. While this film was meant for children, anybody who grew up in the 70's (and later) would love to see this film on DVD for the first time.

The Story
The film starts off slow, focusing on Charlie Brown's inability to do anything right. He can't make anything out of the cloud formations, he can't fly a kite, and of course his humiliation on the baseball field. The story then takes an unexpected move when Charlie Brown discovers that he is good at spelling bees and wins the opportunity to participate in the spelling bee championships in New York City.

Throughout the film, the jazzy score of Vince Guaraldi is animated in a very impressionistic and Andy Warhol-esque pop art design.

Special Features
There are no special features provided.

Overall
I am very torn with this DVD. I would love to say "pick up this DVD", but the lack of special features is disappointing. There has got to be something that can be dug up for this film. Even a special making-of with surviving cast and crew would have been a welcome feature.

On the other side, I would recommend any child to watch this film as this was one of my favorite cartoons growing up. Hopefully we will see the other Charlie Brown films brought to DVD including my favorite of the four, "Race for Your Life Charlie Brown." If you are a fan of the Peanuts you will like this DVD but be prepared to feel a bit disappointed with the lack of extras.

You can buy A Boy Named Charlie Brown from Amazon.com
