About the DVD:
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?
I LOVE anything that has an anti-bullying message. Especially now where it's so easy for people to hide behind their computer screens to bully someone – I try to get my hands on anything that I can help my kids realize that it's not okay to bully anyone and that they are going to face situations where they have to make the choice of what they think is right and I can only hope they make the right one. He's a Bully, Charlie Brown talks about a powerful message but that kids can relate to. My family and I enjoyed it as well as the shorts. This is a great collection to have for any Peanuts fan and for anyone trying to teach their kids to have courage to stand up to bullies.
