Showcasing A Boy Named Charlie Brown And Snoopy Come Home, The Endearing Classics Debut As A Two-Disc DVD Set From CBS Home Entertainment And Paramount Home Entertainment

The fun-loving exploits of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, Lucy and the whole gang come to life in the story about America's favorite beagle gone missing.  A dazzling display of colorful animation, Snoopy Come Home is packed with adorable characters and witty dialogue sure to enchant the entire family.  Featuring a spectacular score by Richard and Robert Sherman, the film is filled with unforgettable music that will keep everyone humming long after the picture is over.
