I hope the aspect ratio is 1:33:1 or whatever the original aspect ratio was.

This is retarded, a 25 minute episode on a bluray for $20? No thanks

Why wouldn't they put together all of the charlie bown specials on on bluray, like they are doing with Wallace and Gromit.

I want to see A Boy Named Charlie Brown on BD, but presented in it's original 1:33:1 aspect ratio. So far the VHS version is the best version because you get the full frame.

Why do you not think this will be 1.33:1? Has Warner ever cropped their previous Charlie Brown films on DVD? Warner did wonders on their classic Loonyey Tunes films on various HD/BDs.

What do you want to bet that is around the corner later this year or next? Or maybe they'll try to milk the Great Pumpkin first, too. I just got done agreeing with Nate in the Crouching Tiger thread, and brought up the Casablanca and Xmas Vacation as well. If there's any indication blu is going mainstream, I guess it can be reflected in the junk that is being marketed like DVDs have been in the past (Star Treks series, Superbits etc. anyone?). My wife will really want this, but I'm going to have a hard time buying it knowing I;m going to be complaining within the year when a complete collection is released at a more reasonable price.....

They only cropped the full length movies to 16:9, but not the shorts like these ones.

I really do hope that they don't screw up for any short of full length film.

I agree about the price, but it's nice they're starting to put these on blu. The kids really want the stop motion rudolph classics so hopefully they're announced soon.

I'm more interested to hear about the audio specs on this one. The music by the Vince Guaraldi Trio is classic.
