Happiness Is a Warm Blanket, Charlie BrownClosed Captioning

Description

Linus is pushed to his limits when he learns Grandma is coming to visit and plans on ridding him of his childish security blanket. As Grandma's arrival looms closer, the Peanuts gang tries to help Linus learn to cope without his fuzzy crutch. Lucy is particularly eager to cure Linus' dependency using her own psychiatric techniques, and while Charlie Brown tries to help, he just doesn't have the heart to see Linus suffer. All the while, Snoopy is constantly agitating matters because he wants the blanket for himself. In the end, insightful Linus points out that everyone has their own type of "security blanket," and in life, a little security is a valuable thing. Includes two bonus features: learn how the Peanuts comic strip was made into a movie in "Deconstructing Schulz: From Comic Book to Screenplay," and meet the stellar voice cast in "Happiness is... Finding the Right Voice."

Customer Reviews

Peanuts is in great hands.

The people who made this obviously have an excellent understanding of what the work of Charles Schulz was all about. This is the closest to the classic specials from the 1960s we can get. The material is all drawn from original Peanuts comic strips from that era. The characters look and sound like the characters from the classic holiday specials. Only the characters from that era are present.

This "movie" (it is less than 50 minutes long, but probably the perfect length) provokes thought and is deeper and more insightful than most children's animation from any era. It is not paced like modern animation; it is paced like a classic Peanuts special. It offers a chance to slow down, take a deep, calming breath, and consider who we are and why we do the things we do. We all have a security blanket, even though it is probably not a blanket and may not be easily noticed by others.

If you enjoy the classic Peanuts specials, such as "A Charlie Brown Christmas" and "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!", this movie is a must-have. My children have watched this several times already, and my wife and I have enjoyed it as much as they have. By understanding what made the original specials truly special, the creators of "Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown" have made a new classic, almost 50 years later, and for that we should all be grateful to them and support this work, in hopes more like this will be made.

Not For Kids

Dialogue and displays of aggression far exceed those of prior specials. I will not let my children view this until they are much much older.
