HAPPINESS IS…PEANUTS: GO SNOOPY GO! is a “Peanuts” DVD that contains the tv special, “It’s Spring Training, Charlie Brown” and episode 13 of THE CHARLIE BROWN AND SNOOPY SHOW. In “It’s Spring Training, Charlie Brown” Charlie and his baseball team are getting ready for the upcoming season, but it looks like the season is going to be just as long as ever. Charlie’s team doesn’t even have uniforms. A deal is struck with Mr. Hennessey, the owner of the local hardware store, that he will purchase the uniforms for the team provided that they win their first game. It seems like things will be as they usually are until the team gets a new recruit, Frieda’s little brother, Leland. Episode 13 of THE CHARLIE BROWN AND SNOOPY SHOW features such shorts as “Vulture” where Snoopy thinks he’s a winged bird and “Rerun” that features some of the adventure so Lucy and Linus’ little brother Rerun on the back of his Mom’s bicycle. The “Happiness Is… Peanuts” DVDs have been an interesting contribution of the animated Peanuts on DVD. They are usually fairly skimpy, and GO SNOOPY GO! is especially so with only one tv special and just one episode of THE CHARLIE BROWN AND SNOOPY SHOW. It’s a good special and tv episode, but I just wish there was more material. I just don’t understand the marketing behind it.
Finally, more baseball fun arrives. First up in It's Spring Training Charlie Brown, Charlie Brown thinks his baseball team might improve if his players had some real, honest-to-goodness uniforms. A local businessman promises to provide them, but there's a catch-first the team has to win a game! Then in The Charlie Brown & Snoopy Show episode, "It's That Team Spirit Charlie Brown", Snoopy acts as a vulture, Rerun observes the world while he is riding on the back on the mother's bike, and more. It's all here in "Happiness is Peanuts: Go Snoopy Go". More Happiness is Peanuts DVD's will arrive soon.
