Happiness Is…Peanuts: Team Snoopy DVD Review


Happiness Is… Peanuts: Team Snoopy is an all-new collection of Peanuts favorites, featuring hilarious sports-themed adventures with the whole Peanuts gang. Happiness Is… Peanuts: Team Snoopy is the newest installment of the Happiness Is…Peanuts collection. This title pairs the TV special Lucy Must Be Traded, Charlie Brown with an episode from The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show on one disc.
Lucy Must Be Traded, Charlie Brown – For Charlie Brown, a new baseball season equals new hopes of winning. Unfortunately, one player just isn’t measuring up, which makes the team decide that Lucy Must Be Traded, Charlie Brown. This delightful special finds Charlie Brown trading his teammate Lucy, for Marcie, one of Peppermint Patty’s players in hopes this will finally end his losing streak. Will Marcie lead Charlie Brown’s team to victory? More importantly, will Peppermint Patty have the patience to tolerate Lucy and her antics?

The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show – The three featured segments available on DVD for the first time include: The Pelicans, which finds Charlie Brown getting stuck with mascot duties while Peppermint Patty is on the road to victory with her baseball team. In Great Pumpkin, the Peanuts gang visits the bowling alley in hopes of teaching Charlie Brown a new sport with hilarious results. In Spike, it’s game on as the neighborhood cat meets his match when Snoopy’s older brother Spike trots into town.

I sat down to watch this DVD with my 5-year old daughter. For me, it was a little bit of reliving my childhood, as I grew up watching Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts gang. For her, she was not as familiar with the characters, but we do have a family tradition where we sit down together and watch the Peanuts holiday TV specials when they air in prime time. For Peanuts fans, this DVD compilation does not disappoint. It is classic Peanuts at its very best. The segments kept my daughter’s attention throughout (which is sometimes not easy for a 5-year-old) and we had several laugh-out-loud moments. I think this DVD would be great for anyone who wishes to pass on their love of the Peanuts characters to the next generation. It is a wonderful DVD to watch during a family movie night, and a must-have DVD for any Peanuts collector.

Happiness Is… Peanuts: Team Snoopy will be available on DVD May 8, 2012 and is available for preorder from Amazon for $11.99.
