For completists, I am happy to report that the Warner restoration of A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS on Native UHD4K disc is AMAZING. For a 1965 Broadcast TV show, the colors are VIBRANT and the 5.1 restored soundtrack anchors all dialogue in the center channel and immerses the viewer in Vince Guaraldi's excellent music in ALL channels. And Warner has lavished the 25 minute show with a 1:85.1 aspect ratio which fills the entire screen.

See the source image

Snoop Dog and Chas in 1:85.1 WIDESCREEN and Immersive 5.1 Sound!

Does that mean we lose some of the original picture?
If so, I have mixed emotions about that.
IMO, so much MORE is gained not lost as 1965 Color TVs could never replicate those vibrant colors and there are NO chopped off heads....and the sound, ..pretty awesome considering the original broadcast was in mono only..there is even some ample bass response!

I just double checked: the same Dolby Vision, 4K, 5.1 is on Apple TV+ if people wanna give it a look before going for the disc. I thought it was mono, but scrolling down reveals a bunch of 5.1 in various languages

Can confirm that from when I saw it last holiday, and when I watched Its The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown that the Dolby Vision colors are excellent

FYI, the Peanuts HOLIDAY COLLECTION has been released in a Native UHD4K package with lossless 24 bit DTS~HD MA 5.1 codecs. It's a six disc set which includes the entire collection on BD~V, as well. Comes in a slipcase.


Edit: Just ordered a Used, VG set through Amazon for under $14 + s/h. Will Keep the UHD4K discs and gift the BD~Vs to a friend who is autistic and a huge Peanuts fan!

It's very tempting, but the packaging says English only. We speak French at home and I would like my kids to be able to see them.

I don't usually fall for the whole coloured LP lark, I don't even really buy LPs anymore, but I decided to get the limited to 750 copies Ice Skating Rink clear one which is a Craft exclusive.

I received my LP today and it's a thing of beauty. I'm glad to have it in my collection. The embossed cover is also really well made.

Received my copy today. I never owned this in any format so I have nothing to compare it to. But I think it sounds great. I am happy with the fidelity and the mix. It's nicely packaged. It reminds me of the ones that would hold several 78's back in the day. I am listening to it in Dolby Atmos folded down to 5.1
