Product Description

Happiness is...Peanuts™: Snow Days

Amazon.com

Snow days offer a perfect opportunity for families to bundle up and play together outside for a while and then warm up with a cup of hot cocoa and a Peanuts special playing on the DVD player. In the 1980 She's a Good Skate, Charlie Brown, viewers glimpse a whole new side of Peppermint Patty when she buckles down to pursue her ice-skating dream. Early morning practices with her stern and very grumpy coach Snoopy may be leaving Peppermint Patty too sleepy to stay awake in class, but hopefully her hard work will earn her high marks in the regional skating competition. Three short stories from the 1985 The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show spotlight Lucy, Sally, and Snoopy and their sometimes overzealous enthusiasm. Lucy is even bossier than usual in "The Play," which follows Charlie Brown's reminiscing about "the most interesting Christmas ever" for a school assignment. It all starts with Lucy's idea to put on a school play at the ice rink and winds up with Linus getting signed up to sing "Jingle Bells"--never mind that he can't even sing--plus Marci scoring the role of Mary, Peppermint Patty being forced to play a sheep against her will, Sally struggling to remember a single line, Snoopy being paired up with Lucy as her skating partner, and Charlie Brown getting stuck finding a way to pay for all the props they need for the production. Naturally, everything that goes wrong somehow turns out to be all Charlie Brown's fault. "Sweet Babboo" is all about Sally's devastation when she doesn't get a Valentine's Day card from Linus, and "Snoopy's Story" is Peppermint Patty's effusive essay about Snoopy, the most amazing animal she's ever seen, and the unexpected praise her essay-writing efforts earn. While an argument could be made for releasing Peanuts programs in chronological order rather than by thematic grouping, this compilation offers a nice chance to enjoy and share some Peanuts television shows that have not been previously released on DVD.

Let's be honest, Happiness would be if they'd go back to releasing the peanuts specials in chronological sets instead of the same few specials shifted around on new themed releases all the time, still most fans will take what they can get, myself included. These "Happiness Is..." releases are at a more affordable price and at least include episodes of the Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show that haven't been seen on DVD before.

This release includes:

She's a Good Skate, Charlie Brown (the tv special)

Peppermint Patty prepares for a skating competition with Snoopy as her coach.

Originally Aired: 2/25/1980

Sally's Sweet Babboo (from The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show)

The Play: Charlie Brown writes a term paper about what happened at the previous year's disastrous Christmas play. Sweet Babboo: Everyone in the gang is hoping for valentines from their favorite sweeties on Valentine's Day, including Sally (who is looking for a valentine from Linus). Snoopy's Story: Peppermint Patty writes an essay about Snoopy and then is chosen to read it in front of the whole school.

Originally Aired: 10/12/85

So you aren't getting much, as I said I much preferred the chronological sets, but some parents will pick this up for the kids and some fans won't mind seeing the older special and an episode from the old series for only ten bucks. I wish they would put more on their releases though if they are only going to release individual volumes. I'd hoped these "Happiness Is..." releases were just to test the waters for a complete series release of The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show but that seems less likely to be the case as time goes on. Enjoy this release, they are clearly hoping to hit the holiday market with it.

First up, in "She's A Good Skate, Charlie Brown", he's grumpy but he's good! Snoopy is the hard-to-please coach who trains Peppermint Patty for a figure skating championship. And in "The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show" episode "Sally's Sweet Baboo", Sally's attentions turn Linus more sour than sweet. It's the second release in the "Happiness is Peanuts" series.

HAPPINESS IS PEANUTS: SNOW DAYS is a DVD that includes the final episode (#18) from THE CHARLIE BROWN AND SNOOPY SHOW and the tv special SHE'S A GOOD SKATE, CHARLIE BROWN.

Episode #18 of THE CHARLIE BROWN AND SNOOPY SHOW includes three segments:

"The Play" - Charlie Brown writes about his most memorable Christmas. It was one in which Lucy was chosen to direct the school Christmas pageant and decided to hold it at the skating rink so she could be the star. Everything goes wrong.

"Sweet Babboo!" - set during Valentine's Day, Sally makes a very special Valentine addressed to her Sweet Babboo and becomes despondent while passing out Valentine's Day cards at school when Linus doesn't come forward to pick it up.

"Snoopy's Story" - Peppermint Patty writes an essay about Snoopy that ends up winning her an essay contest and she is chosen to read her essay before the entire school.

The episode is structured like most of the episodes from the series with a longer segment and two shorter segments.

SHE'S A GOOD SKATE, CHARLIE BROWN is an animated Peanuts short that first aired on tv in 1980. The short revolves around Peppermint Patty and her preparation with her coach, Snoopy, for an upcoming ice skating competition. Peppermint Patty is the star of the episode. Most of the other characters are only background characters in this story. The exceptions to this are Marcie who Peppermint Patty talks into designing a skating dress for her (even though she can't sew), Snoopy (who is Patty's coach), and Woodstock (who has one of his most sweet, memorable, and moving appearances on film). This special is loosely based off of Peanuts strips from the mid-1970s.

This Snow Days release shows how dreadful the Peanuts Specials became in the 1980's.

SHE'S A GOOD SKATE CHARLIE BROWN (1980) is hard to sit through. It stars Peppermint Patty, who spends most of the show just skating, and only features Marci & Snoopy. The rest of the gang includes cameo appearances of Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, and Schroder who do little more than cheer Patty from the fan seats. They have NOTHING to do in this TV special! And one of the cardinal rules of the Peanuts world has been violated here, the ADULT teacher TALKS! Gone is the muted horn that only the Peanuts kids can understand. I have seen some of the other 1980's Peanuts specials and some of them are even worse. This show will prove once and for all that there is no reason for Warner to release a Peanuts The 1980's collection.

THE CHARLIE BROWN & SNOOPY SHOW (1985) #18 "Sally's Sweet Baboo" is well worth watching, and proves that even in the dreadful 1980's quality Peanuts shows can be produced, capturing the flavor of the original specials of the 1960's & 1970's. It is no wonder that Warner Home Video placed this first on the menu.

So basically you are going to be buying this DVD for one 22 minute TV show that you will watch, and one 22 minute TV special you will fast-forward through.
