DVD review: Happiness Is...Peanuts: Friends Forever

While we receive and review lots of great DVDs for the whole family, I'm always particularly happy when a new Peanuts' DVD arrives on my front door. I know I'm assured of a good time, watching the antics of the Peanuts gang! The newest Peanuts DVD just came out on December 27th, and I recently had the chance to review it. It's called Happiness Is... Peanuts: Friends Forever. Here's a bit about it, from a press release that I received.

Charlie Brown’s hilarious and heartbreaking attempts to meet his beloved Little Red-Haired Girl and other endearing adventures are featured on Happiness is…Peanuts™: Friends Forever, the latest Peanuts DVD release from Warner Home Video (WHV). Available in stores December 27, 2011, Friends Forever is the newest installment of the Happiness is…Peanuts™ collection, a series of favorite Peanuts television programs compiled together on DVD. Happiness is…Peanuts™: Friends Forever, pairs TV special You’re in Love, Charlie Brown, with an episode from The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show on one disc. This title will retail for $14.97 SRP.
What can you say about Peanuts DVDs other than they are always wonderful and fun to watch. This collection was no different- it made me smile and laugh and happy to be watching with my kids. All together, this DVD is 50 minutes long, with one main story (You're in Love, Charlie Brown) and a collection of shorter episodes that make up one episode of The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show.  It's a nice collection and would be a great addition to any Peanuts fan's collection.

Disclosure: I received this DVD to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.
