If you re-collect the 1960s, you weren’t really there

With Woodstock-the-bird serving as the mascot for Woodstock-the-music-festival, the folks at Warners thought it was a good time for a release of a boxed set of the 1960s Peanuts specials. The bad news is that this overlaps with specials that were already released on DVD. The good news is that …
