Happiness is…Peanuts™: Snoopy’s Adventures, became available in stores June 14, 2011. (I actually saw it at Wal-mart over the weekend myself!) This release kicks off a new DVD collection from WHV that features themed compilations of favorite Peanuts television programs. Happiness is…Peanuts™: Snoopy’s Adventures pairs TV special Snoopy’s Getting Married, Charlie Brown with an episode from The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show on one disc. The DVD will retail for $14.97 SRP.
Is Snoopy really planning on tying the knot? In the Emmy® Award nominated Snoopy’s Getting Married, Charlie Brown, everyone in the Peanuts gang pitches in, in an effort to make preparations for Snoopy’s big wedding day.
While acting as Peppermint Patty’s watchdog one night, Snoopy meets the girl of his dreams, Genevieve, a beautiful Poodle. Genevieve and Snoopy begin courting and soon after, he proposes. Snoopy asks his brother Spike to be his “best Beagle,” prompting Spike to embark on a long and arduous journey from Needles, California to participate in the event. Charlie Brown takes Snoopy to a tuxedo shop where he is fitted for proper wedding attire, which includes a cane and swanky top hat. The excitement builds as the big day draws near but Snoopy gets increasingly nervous about leaving his bachelorhood behind. Will wedding bells ring for Snoopy?
Happiness is…Peanuts™: Snoopy’s Adventures also includes an episode from The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show, the Daytime Emmy® Award nominated program featuring animated skits based on Peanuts comic strips created by Charles M. Schulz.
The episode is comprised of the following three segments:
• Snoopy’s Foot – Snoopy tries to play baseball with his foot in a cast.
• Giant – Snoopy and Woodstock grow a beanstalk and meet up with a giant.
• Rerun – Lucy and Linus’ little brother Rerun, meets a little girl in the supermarket.
“We thought consumers would enjoy having the chance to sample an episode from The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show, which hasn’t been seen on TV in a while or released on DVD before and so we paired it with a classic Peanuts special for a really fun title that centers on Snoopy as a character,” said Jeff Brown, WHV Executive Vice President and GM of Non-Theatrical Franchise. He added, “Everyone has their favorite Peanuts character and our goal with these new themed releases is to be able to showcase as many beloved characters as we can, starting with Snoopy in Snoopy’s Adventures.”
I love Snoopy, he's an old time favorite in my book. I was so glad to get an advance copy to share with my kids too! It might not be the same as some of today's cartoons, but if you ask me that is actually a good thing. I much prefer the older (original to me) cartoons. They are actually funnier and kid friendlier in my opinion. And to be honest my kids like them just as much once they actually sit down and give them a chance. It's just getting them past thinking since they are from my childhood they won't be any good mindset. Several of the older cartoons have now become some of their favorites. Every year around holidays we look forward to hits like "It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" and "Charlie Brown's Christmas" to name a few. So I am proud to add this one to my library too.
