goodsportcharliedvdIn the seventh Peanuts animated film, ‘You’re A Good Sport, Charlie Brown’; Warner Brothers releases the film in a Remastered Deluxe Edition. The remastering of this film is really fantastic for those that have seen this film over the years. This film is over 34 years old and clock in at 25 minutes long. While this is one of the lesser known of the Peanuts films, it won an Emmy Award.

Charlie Brown tries to win the motocross championship as he has to also face off against the likes of Peppermint Patty and the Masked Marvel. The Masked Marvel is our old-time favorite Snoopy. The problem for Charlie Brown is that he is wearing “Unlucky Number 13”. It will be a tight race to the finish line as Charlie Brown tries to win the motocross season and championship.

This is a very nicely paced Charlie Brown film that everyone in the whole family can enjoy. That is one thing that makes the entire Charlie Brown franchise so great and accessible. ‘You’re A Good Sport, Charlie Brown’ does a great job trying to teach a lesson of being a good sport in competition for the younger kids. I have always found such wonderful meanings in these Charlie Brown films to really stand out on top.

The video and audio receive a much needed upgrade through a full restoration. While the film is 34 years old and only so much can be done, it does look good. Colors are much bolder than in the past.
Movie Content: 4.5/5
