I picked up today something that I wasn’t sure would ever exist. The Peanuts 4-Movie Collection gathers all four of the classically animated Peanuts theatrical films into one handy, cheap set (just under $20 at the moment). The reason that this seemed unlikely is that the four films are owned by two different companies – the first two by CBS, the latter ones by Paramount. The Paramount disks do include the special features of their previous DVD release, which in the case of Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown is just a theatrical trailer, but with Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (and Don’t Come Back!!) it’s an original documentary – it’s one of the ones they tapped me to interview.
(For some reason, the back of the package suggests a viewing order of the Paramount films first then the CBS ones, rather than in the order they were released. Odd.)
