DVD Review: He’s A Bully, Charlie Brown

 He’s A Bully, Charlie Brown is an all-new compilation featuring the entire Peanuts gang that deals with important life lessons by using animation and comedy. This heartwarming collection brings together two Peanuts specials that are paired with an episode of The Charlie Brown & Snoopy Show, that have been brilliantly remastered in all-new 4K Ultra HD transfers to DVD.

In this must-own compilation, Charlie Brown is called upon to stand up for one of his pals, who is taken advantage of by a bully at summer camp. With school out for summer, Charlie Brown and his pals set out for camp. Rerun van Pelt, Lucy’s youngest brother, brings his prized collection of marbles, which once belonged to his grandfather, Felix, an award-winning marbles champ. Rerun is determined to become a marble master just like his grandpa but first, he must find someone who will teach him how to play the game.

At camp, Rerun meets Joe Agate, a tough-talking and disrespectful older boy who takes advantage of Rerun’s naiveté and cons him out of all his grandpa Felix’s marbles. A devastated Rerun confides in Charlie Brown, who is so disgusted by Joe’s behavior that he decides to stand up to him, with the help of Snoopy as Joe Cool, of course. Will Charlie Brown summon the courage to face the awful Joe Agate and win back Rerun’s beloved marbles?

In It was a Short Summer, Charlie Brown, which is also featured on this release, it’s a hilarious battle of boys against girls, with Snoopy having to get in the middle of it all.  At summer camp, the Peanuts gang put up with poor food and the girls winning all the sports competitions. To get even, the boys challenge them to an arm-wrestling contest between Lucy and “The Masked Marvel” – aka Snoopy in disguise. Will the boys triumph or stay defeated. He’s a Bully, Charlie Brown also features an episode of The Charlie Brown & Snoopy Show, which includes four delightful segments, including Shoveling, Rerun, Lost Blanket and The Manager.

The front of the packaging features the artwork you see up top and the back includes details for all three episodes and some artwork. The DVD disc is plain with no painted artwork. Inserting the disc, the menu screen was simple and easy to navigate. The picture and sound quality for this standard-definition release were both really good. This all-new 4K Ultra HD transfer gave these vintage episodes a brand new look.

Bottom line is: He’s A Bully, Charlie Brown ended up being a really fun watch for this life-long Peanuts fan. This release sends a powerful and inspiring message but is still able to keep its sense of humor and comedic tone. From time to time, we’re all faced with situations in which we have to be strong, courageous and stand up for what we believe is right and  this release gives these serious topics a much lighter approach. Charlie Brown and Snoopy take on bullying, they head to summer camp and even snag Linus’ beloved blanket. This DVD releases on October 6th, just in time for National Bullying Prevention Month this month and is definitely worth checking out.
