Peanuts probably doesn’t need to go up to HD because the DVD versions hold up nicely. The colors are pure in their solid shapes. They’re not especially bright, though Linus’s yellow hair, Snoopy’s red doghouse and Lucy’s blue dress pop out a little. But Woodstock is normal yellow and Snoopy is a dirty white, like most outdoor animals’ fur. You may see a bit of fuzz if you’re using an upconverting player, but most of it is clear, and the faintly shaded backgrounds look pretty.

Peanuts 1970s Collection Volume 1

This collection has a bonus feature centered on Woodstock himself. It’s a grown-up analysis of Woodstock’s role in the narrative of Peanuts, with Joseph Campbell and Don Quixote references! They cover the history of how he came into the comic strip and how he impacted the series since his arrival.

That makes this a great collection for grown-ups getting nostalgic with their high tech systems, and the classic cartoons are still there for any of their kids to pop in and discover.
