Years ago, at the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm, a unique litter is born. With members including Snoopy, Spike and Belle, they grow up healthy and a good music band. However, they become separated as they become sold including Snoopy. Years later, Charlie Brown can't help but notice how depressed his dog is. He suggests that Snoopy's family should have a family reunion. The whole gang enthusiastically responds, and even when they return their birthplace for the shindig only to learn that things have changed, nothing changes the joy of reunion, or the chance for making some good music.

[Charlie Brown has discovered an old "Puppy for Sale" sign and shows it to Snoopy and his siblings]
I can't believe it. That's all that's left. This is where your old home was. There's no more Daisy Hill Puppy Farm. It's gone. They built a five-story parking lot on it. You realized what's happened? They're prking on your memories.
You know, big brother, what's-his-name is right: you can't go home again.

This TV special shows us just where Snoopy came from. As it turns out, the Snoopster is a hunting dog which was bred for profit at a puppy mill. Even more surprising, everyone in his doggie family is musically inclined. (Snoopy's instrument of choice is a guitar.)
Well, nobody is at all surprised that these canines can belt out a mean tune. Instead, prospective buyers just grab whatever dog they want and drive away with them. Snoopy is first purchased by a girl who lives in an apartment. Soon enough, the landlord develops a "no dog" policy and the girl has to return Snoopy. That's good news for Charlie Brown. Chuck is feeling a little down in the dumps and realizes that every boy needs a dog. He goes to the puppy mill and buys Snoopy for the paltry sum of five bucks.
What about the reunion that is mentioned in the title? It comes into play when four years(!!) after the puppies are split up, Charlie Brown sends out invitations to all of Snoopy's siblings for a family get-together. I really don't know why the Mendelson-Melendez creative team kept bringing the Peanuts gang back together throughout the '90s if they weren't going to bother coming up with anything worthwhile. Maybe they were in it simply for the money. I hold up their Super Bowl fiasco as Exhibit A to back up that theory. 2/10
