You’re a Good DVD, Charlie Brown

The official announcement came out today: the animated version of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is coming to DVD for the first time in January.

I’ve known for a while that this was coming, because they interviewed me for the new featurette on the making of this special. Don’t be surprised if I’m not in the fina results; I don’t think that I had a lot of useful information to add in this case. (I’ll be more surprised if I’m not on I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown, which gets released tomorrow.)

It looks like they’re going to forgo adding a second special to this disk, presumably because this was an hour-long special (which means 48 minutes of show).
