This is America, Charlie Brown {Review} {Giveaway}

When I was a little kid, I would love all of the Charlie Brown Series came on ABC every holiday. It was a special moment each holiday for us kids. With The Fourth Of July creeping up on us soon, I thought it was a great time to share with you the release of This is America, Charlie Brown. This is America, Charlie Brown, is going to be available for purchase as of  June 17, 2014 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. This collection has 8 fun animated specials! I did learn that This is America, Charlie Brown originally aired as an eight-part mini-series on CBS in 1988. Just one year away from when I was born!
 This is America, Charlie Brown has been remastered for superior picture and sound quality the first time on DVD! If you didn't know each of the animated specials centers on various important events in the course of American history, as seen through the eyes of the Peanuts gang. {Completely adorable might I add!}My favorite special is The Mayflower Voyagers. If you haven't seen it before you are missing out! Check out all of the specials included in this awesome DVD! 
  • The Mayflower Voyagers – The Peanuts become pilgrims sailing to the New World aboard the Mayflower and endure the first hard winter on Plymouth Plantation.
  • The Birth of the Constitution – Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang is present when the country’s founding fathers discuss putting together the constitution. 
  • The Wright Brothers at Kitty Hawk – Linus and Charlie Brown witness the Wright brothers’ first flight.
  • The NASA Space Station – Linus dreams that he and the rest of the Peanuts gang travel into space.
  • The Building of the Transcontinental RailroadCharlie Brown discusses how the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads link to create the transcontinental railroad.
  • The Great Inventors – Each member of the Peanuts gang reports on various American inventions. Linus discusses Alexander Graham Bell while Peppermint Patty and Marcie talk about Thomas Edison, and Charlie Brown writes a report on the invention of the automobile.
  • The Smithsonian and the Presidency – Viewers experience meeting U.S. presidents as seen through the eyes of the Peanuts gang. Charlie Brown visits with Abraham Lincoln. The gang also meets Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin D. Roosevelt. 
  • The Music and Heroes of America – Snoopy wants to participate in Schroeder’s report on music in America. Everyone in the gang plays a different musical instrument while we hear such classics as “Alexander’s Ragtime Band” and “Yankee Doodle.” This special plays homage to such celebrated composers as John Phillip Sousa, Irving Berlin, George Cohan, Scott Joplin and others. Also featured is Lucy’s  report on the heroes of America, which include Susan B. Anthony, Clara Barton, Helen Keller, Martin Luther King Jr. Jonas Salk and others.
