It’s no secret that I am a fan of Peanuts. While the holiday collection has a special place in my heart, I also enjoy the other animated specials and shorts that were made.
Recently, we had the opportunity to watch a new DVD with Snoopy (one of my favorite characters!) at the center of things.
About Happiness Is… Peanuts: Go, Snoopy, Go!
Step up to the plate with the Peanuts gang in It’s Spring Training, Charlie Brown. It’s springtime and Charlie Brown’s baseball team is gearing up for the new season. The players work their hardest to train and get into tip-top shape but in spite of all their efforts, end up with disappointing results. To top it off, Lucy points out that they are the only team without any uniforms. To boost the team’s morale, Charlie Brown manages to secure new uniforms after Mr. Hennessey at the hardware store promises to sponsor the team – with the condition they win the first game of the season. Will Charlie Brown and his teammates emerge victorious and score new uniforms?
The laughs and good times continue on Happiness is…Peanuts™: Go, Snoopy, Go! with three delightful segments from The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show. In Blanket, Snoopy attempts to steal Linus’ blanket and Linus in turn, uses Snoopy’s supper dish as blackmail to get his blanket back. In Peppermint Patty, Peppermint Patty has trouble in school with a straight “Z” average, and therefore refuses to go to class. Rainy Day has Charlie Brown giving a “speech” on baseball signals, however, everyone is more interested in watching TV than paying attention to him.
MSRP is $14.99, although you may find it for less.
J and I have enjoyed watching this DVD a few times. I find myself chuckling over how Peppermint Pattie seems clueless about Snoopy being a dog and not a boy with her friend, Marcy, losing patience when insisting he’s a beagle. To me, that scene is a reminder that we can see what we want to see rather than the truth at times. (Love when philosophical things make their way into cartoons!)
J just loves the music and watching the stories unfold. Maybe I have a Peanuts lover to join me in watching these classic shows!
All in all, this is a great DVD option for the Peanuts lover in your life.
