To be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of Charlie Brown yet I at least find these movies and specials enjoyable enough even if I don’t laugh. The message behind them are great and for families.

PLOT SYNOPSIS


Take a jazzy joyride through the streets of Manhattan, with delightfully trippy dream sequences and imagination-filled musical interludes as Charlie Brown takes on the National Spelling Bee. Sit for a spell and learn that if at first you don’t succeed, take a step back. Maybe a nap. The grab the closest beagle… and dance.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5


This release comes with an embossed and textured matted slip cover but no features.

 


VIDEO – 4.0/5


Paramount releases A Boy Named Charlie Brown onto Blu-ray for the first time, giving it a nice looking 1080p high-definition transfer. While it is indeed sharper looking compared with other releases, I did notice the occasional bouts of dirt. That said, colors look bright but thankfully not oversaturated.

AUDIO – 4.25/5


Also getting an upgrade is the audio. There are 5.1 and 2.0 DTS-HD Master Audio tracks available, the former being the default, and honestly, it sounds great. This is the type of animated feature that benefits from the lossless tracks where not does the dialogue sound clean, when that classic music is cued, it makes some fine usage of the front and rear channels. Now, of course, this isn’t going to test your sound system but considering previous releases, this is a solid upgrade.

 


OVERALL – 3.0/5


Overall, to be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of Charlie Brown yet I at least find these movies and specials enjoyable enough even if I don’t laugh. The message behind them are great and for families. The Blu-ray released by Paramount has no bonus material sadly and instead you’re paying for the upgraded video and audio which, for fans, is probably worth it.
