DVD Review: THE CHARLIE BROWN AND SNOOPY SHOW (The Complete Animated Series)

Just about everybody is familiar with Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the Peanuts gang, the popular long running comic strip and Holiday specials that air every year. There was also THE CHARLIE BROWN AND SNOOPY SHOW, the animated series created and written by Charles M. Shultz that ran from 1983 to 1985.

This nice 2-disc set includes 18 episodes of fun animated shorts that include the entire Peanuts gang; Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Schroeder, Sally, Peppermint Patty, Marcie, Franklin, Pig-Pen, Snoopy and Woodstock . Each of these characters have their own unique personalities and attitudes.

Each episode contains several shorts that tell different lighthearted stories. Most center around Charlie Brown and his tough luck but we do see the other characters get some front and center time as well. Of course, my favorite out of all of these characters is Snoopy. The beagle who sleeps on top of his doghouse, who can be very mischievous at times, who dances when Schroeder begins playing his piano, and who gets in the middle of almost all of the predicaments the kids get into. Snoopy is just about always there and sometimes poor Woodstock is right there with him, most of the time unwillingly.

The series is a lot of fun. Each story is simple, yet well written and definitely meant for a young audience but I’m sure the older generation who grew up reading the comic strip will appreciate it as well. It’s hours upon hours of family friendly fun, especially during Holidays. The holidays and the Peanuts gang just seem to go together, like peanut butter and jelly!

Bottom line is, Charlie Brown & Snoopy Show: The Complete Animated Series is great viewing for the entire family. This classic 2-disc set was released on November 20th and comes highly recommended for kids of all ages.
