many hours have gone by and still I am filled with the enamoring joy of this little gem
22 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown," "Snoopy: The Musical" is a stage-to-screen translation, or rather a comic strip-to-stage-to-screen translation. Based, of course, on Peanuts by Charles Schulz, adapted into a Broadway musical, and then later adapted by Schulz and animation director Bill Melendez into an animated TV special. Being as unfamiliar with the stage as I am, I knew nothing about the play until I saw this feature. But now having seen it, if I ever get the chance, I will jump at the chance to see the stage version, just so I can hear those wonderful, enamoring songs again.

There's not really much as far as a story is concerned here. Mostly, it's just a day in the life for the Peanuts gang, only with a lot of songs thrown in. And usually, I criticize productions that take this approach, even if they are musicals. But this a real exception, for not only did I enjoy it tremendously, I award it my highest honor of ten out of ten. Why? Because the songs, and there are many, are just so beautiful, so wonderfully-written, and the voices are spectacular. Every song is instantly memorable. Each character gets their own specific song. A favorite of mine is "I Know Now" which is sung by Lucy, Sally, and Peppermint Patty (and almost by Snoopy until Lucy tells him to go home). There's also a great number by Linus as he sings about the Great Pumpkin, Peppermint Patty has a sweet romantic song, and of course Snoopy has his share. But just like before, the best is saved for last and the final number in "Snoopy: The Musical" is utterly breathtaking. It is "If Just One Person", the song we typically associate with Jim Henson and the Muppets. Not only are the songs so great and the music so enthralling, but Melendez's animation team have done it again with smooth movement, a bright color palette, and a drawing style that effectively captures Schulz's. Now some people have their reservations of Snoopy being able to talk (even in just a voice-over) but that doesn't bother me. Sure, I was questionable just as I was about "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" but in the end, because it was a musical, I bought it.

This is a very, very good TV special worth seeing many times. It's been several hours since I saw it and I am still humming the notes for "Just One Person" and many other numbers because they struck a chord instantly. At a brief fifty minutes, "Snoopy: The Musical" goes by rather fast and it leaves you wanting more. Just like its predecessor, it's only flaw is that it isn't quite long enough. It's so well-done that we want more. A wonderful musical and I look forward to seeing a well-deserved restoration and DVD release.
