;e Paci;c. A;er the success of their HBO
miniseries Band of Brothers, which honored
the World War II vets who fought in Europe,
executive producers Tom Hanks and Steven
Spielberg wanted to pay similar tribute to the
men in the Paci;c theater, and this incredible
miniseries does so in a powerful way. ;e series focuses on three real-life heroes and how
the war a;ected their lives—and how they affected the war—and it does so with vivid realism.—Lucy Correa, assistant media buyer

Series Collection. Young or old, you can’t help
but fall for Scooby Doo, the large, lovable Great
Dane who helps his teenage pals, Fred, Velma,
Daphne and Shaggy, through mystery adventures. ;is is good old-fashioned animation,
not the computer-generated stu;. Forty-one
episodes and more than 16 hours of cartoon

Pixar Blu-ray Gi; Sets. Five of the studio’s
best titles—Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Up, Wall-E

Exclusive Christmas music CDs
For the ;rst ime ever, three pic award- winning war documentaries— World at War, Victory at Sea nd Century of Warfare — together in one complete set. WAREHOUSE/ COSTCO.COM Experience WWII
IN FEBRUARY 2010 our team began working on an exclusive custom Christmas CD
program. We wanted to put together a compilation of holiday music from the artists who
are most known and loved by our members.
;e process took seven months and lots
of negotiating with record labels and artist
management to secure the perfect collection
for Costco members, but the result was well
;is Christmas is a collection of 26 songs
by contemporary artists such as Andrea Bocelli, Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Diana Krall,
Rod Stewart, Barbra Streisand and others,
some of whom are contributing songs to a
custom compilation for the very ;rst time.
With Classic Christmas, we have put to-
gether the top 30 Christ-
mas songs of all time—
the original, remastered
recordings of the songs
our members know by
the artist most closely associated with that
song. Artists include Gene Autry, Nat King
Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Burl Ives, Dean Martin
and Frank Sinatra.
It’s that easy.
