Up until today, I only had a guess of the year that this boxed set, With LOVE from Charlie Brown, collecting six World Publishing adaptations of animated Peanuts specials was issued.
But today, I found this ad, which ran in the magazine insert Family Weekly, which was included in various newspapers on November 8, 1970.
$12.95 — and if you pay for the whole set up front, they’ll cover the postage! Obviously, this was meant to land under some people’s Christmas tree. The firm selling the books, Grolier Enterprises, are better remember for their encyclopedia.
1970 seemed to be the year for the phrase “With Love from Charlie Brown,” because in February that was used as the title of a musical performed at the Wichita State University Experimental Theater. The show was just an abridged version of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, and it received a mixed review.
