(October 26, 2009 – Burbank, CA) – Consumers will have something to sing about with Warner Home Video’s (WHV) DVD release of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown Deluxe Edition,” the animated television special in which the Peanuts gang performs various comedy sketches and memorable musical numbers from the popular stage play. The DVD will be available January 26, 2010 and will retail for $19.98 SRP. Order due date is set for December 22, 2009. Charlie Brown has never pitched a winning baseball game. He’s never been able to keep a kite in the air or win a game of checkers and he’s certainly never successfully punted a football. Charlie Brown may be a loveable loser but he’s still managed to capture the hearts of viewers as well as those of his Peanuts pals. To show their appreciation, Lucy, Linus, Sally, Snoopy, and the rest of the gang pay tribute to “good ol’ Chuck” in “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown Deluxe Edition.” Everyone’s favorite “blockhead” finally gets the recognition he deservers via a series of endearing skits mixed with a collection of captivating songs from Clark Gesner’s hit Broadway show. The repertoire includes such unforgettable performances as “Happiness,” “The Kite,” “Suppertime,” “T-E-A-M,” “Book Report” and much more. It’s the Peanuts gang at their very best! “Viewers of all ages will be hooked on the uplifting and heart-touching songs featured on this wonderful DVD. They’ll want to hear them over and over,” said Amit Desai, WHV Vice President of Family, Animation & Partner Brands Marketing. He added, “Aside from the remarkable soundtrack, this special presents fans with a variety of entertaining and endearing vignettes. It also imparts several valuable messages, including the importance of self-acceptance and building friendships. This is a must-have DVD for anyone who loves Peanuts.” DVD Special Features Include: • “Animating a Charlie Brown Musical” – This documentary featurette explores the twenty year journey of the 1967 Clark Gesner album that became a Broadway hit and finally an animated TV special.
