The first two 'Peanuts' Movies from Charles M. Schulz together for the first time! A Boy Named Charlie Brown: The first animated feature film based on Charles M. Schulz's beloved and ever-popular 'Peanuts' comic strip, A Boy Named Charlie Brown, has the pint-sized hero step up to the challenge, face his fears and show the world what he is truly made of. When Charlie Brown enters the school spelling bee, the doubtful and openly-honest Lucy predicts his abject humiliation. But with the help of his best friend Linus and faithful dog Snoopy, Charlie Brown sets out to surprise his detractors in order to attend the national spelling bee in New York City. Nominated for an Oscar in 1971 for Best Original Music/Song Score by Vince Guaraldi, A Boy Named Charlie Brown projects the innocence of Shulz's charming characters with glee and takes them on a most spectacular adventure. Snoopy Come Home: Charles M. Schulz's 'Peanuts' has become one of the most successful comic strip creations in history, etching its way into popular culture and paving the way for many cartoon creations to follow such as The Flintstones and even The Simpsons. In this follow up to 1969's A Boy Named Charlie Brown, the erudite Snoopy finds himself dragged between two owners and challenged to remain true to himself. When Charlie Brown's beloved dog Snoopy receives a letter from his original owner Lila, who is in hospital, his heartstrings are torn and his conscience is haunting him. Along with his bird friend Woodstock, Snoopy decides to venture out and visit ailing Lila, making his way across the country. But when Lila gets better and asks Snoopy to live with her the poor beagle faces a dilemma of loyalty, where he must choose between obedience to a master and love to a friend, between Charlie and Lila. Written by Schulz, with a much admired score by Oscar winners Richard and Robert Sherman (Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) and featuring the on-screen debut of feathered friend Woodstock, Snoopy Come Home is a fun-loving animated adventure for the whole family.
