Needs to be on DVD
16 August 2004 | by (Las Vegas) – See all my reviews

The quality that went into these shows were amazing. During the 1980's nobody could hold a candle to the quality of programming CBS was running. Whether it was their prime time specials featuring Peanuts and Garfield or their Saturday morning lineup, CBS showed quality animation.

In this series of specials, we see the peanuts gang explore the history of America. Coming the all American spirit of the characters with a very mature look at history, we're rewarded with a splendid display of what animation can be when it is done correctly.

I just can't believe these specials are now 16 years old. We need more quality programming like this on TV today.
