Before U.S. audiences were inundated by computer graphics and oversees animation, they reveled in the simple delight of hand-drawn cartooning. The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show harkens back to an era of childhood trials and tribulations. The subtle character voicing and prepubescent antics Charles M. Schulz famed comic-strip characters are as resonant and amusing today as they were in 1983. The 18-episode series has been released as a 2-Disc DVD Collection from Warner Archives.
The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show doesn’t rely on the typical 11 or 22-minute story arc of an animated series. Instead, episodes are broken down into brief segments – some focus on characters, while others focus on topics. For instance, segments may focus on Charlie Brown’s sister, Sally, and her classroom. You’ll see quick bits of Sally delivering a speech in front of her classroom or bringing in an item (or Snoopy and Woodstock) for show and tell. »

"Good grief, a home run."
It begins with an episode of The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show (1983). Snoopy thinks he’s a vulture for a moment. Linus tries to get rid of his blanket, then Snoopy tries to get his Linus’s blanket. Then Linus uses his blanket as a hammock. Then Snoopy tries to get Linus’s blanket again. Marcie and Peppermint Patty skip school because Patty thinks she’s stupid. Why does Marcie keep calling Patty “Sir”? Then Charlie Brown tries to get some baseball practice in on a Rainy Day. It doesn’t go well. Good God.

Warner Brothers’ single serving DVD releases of Peanuts, known quite simply as Happiness Is…Peanuts, don’t have much to offer the devoted Schulz fans, nor are they really the best value if you’re looking to stock up on the more classic and memorable Peanuts cartoons. The thematic DVDs cover topics like “Winter” or, in this case, “Sports”, and typically have one main feature along with a few episodes of The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show, again in accordance with the disc’s theme. On “Team Snoopy”, we get the Peanuts feature Lucy Must be Traded, Charlie Brown, and the following episodes of Tcb&SS: “The Pelican”, “Spike”, and “Great Pumpkin”.
