The next Peanuts special to be released on Warner DVD is coming October 6th. This time it’s the deluxe edition of I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown. This special was already released on an old Paramount DVD release, but it’s now out of print. Besides the 41 minute main feature, though, the disc will also include the DVD debut of the bonus special Happy New Year, Charlie Brown, and a new featurette about how Charles Schulz came to create Rerun Van Pelt, Lucy and Linus’ younger brother.
Here is the synopsis of I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown!:
“I Want A Dog For Christmas, Charlie Brown centers on ReRun, the lovable but ever-skeptical younger brother of Linus and Lucy. It’s Christmas vacation and, as usual, ReRun’s big sister is stressing him out, so he decides to turn to his best friend, Snoopy, for amusement and holiday cheer. However his faithful but unpredictable beagle companion has plans of his own, giving ReRun reason to ask Snoopy to invite his canine brother Spike for a visit. When Spike shows up, it looks like ReRun will have a dog for Christmas after all… but then the real trouble begins.”
