This Is America, Charlie Brown is an eight-part animated television miniseries, depicting events in American history with characters from the Charles M. Schulzcomic stripPeanuts. It aired from 1988 to 1989 on CBS. These eight episodes, originally released singly on videocassette, were released in a two-DVD collector's set on June 13, 2006 by Paramount Pictures. However, the DVD set went out of print once Warner Bros. bought all rights to the Peanuts TV specials. Warner Home Video has since reissued the miniseries on DVD as of June 17, 2014.
Traditionally, these episodes have not been rerun on television, but one episode, "The Mayflower Voyagers," was paired with A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (with which it was released on DVD) in 2008 by ABC, in order to fill the remaining half-hour once filled by He's a Bully, Charlie Brown. However, the special was edited to make room for Dancing with the Stars. ABC continues[a] to broadcast an abridged version of "The Mayflower Voyagers" on Thanksgiving Day, after A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving; the time slot following the Thanksgiving special is less than 30 minutes, due to the network airing the special with longer commercial breaks than those in the original broadcast.
Note: Voice actors sometimes vary in each episode. The exceptions to that are Bill Melendez who voiced Snoopy and Woodstock for all episodes, Curtis Andersen who voiced Schroeder, and Jason Mendelson who voiced Peppermint Patty.
