Why can’t I have a normal dog like everyone else? – Charlie Brown
On 5th December 2019, I ended my review of Snoopy in Space by remarking that I hoped Snoopy’s space adventure would mark the start of a beautiful partnership between Peanuts and Apple TV. Someone at Apple TV must have been listening, as since then, the Schulz family and Apple have signed a partnership made in heaven. This partnership will bring the Peanuts holiday specials to the platform in collaboration with PBS. However, despite each classic’s beauty and enduring joy, it will also see new Peanuts content arriving on Apple, starting with The Snoopy Show.

Split into six 23-minute episodes of short stories, The Snoopy Show is fun, engaging and colourful, but more than that, it’s heartfelt, intelligent and rooted in Schulz’s vision. Each delightful short story is taken directly from the original comic strips, with Snoopy centre stage. However, if you are concerned that The Snoopy Show forgets the Peanuts gang, rest assured, as the crew is all here. From Snoopy’s first meeting with Charlie Brown to Halloween celebrations with Woodstock and a mission to protect Sally’s school lunch, there is so much to love in this show.
In a world of turmoil, political segregation and social isolation, the Peanuts gang have never been more needed in our lives. And thankfully, The Snoopy Show is here to brighten our day, wrapping us in a warm blanket of love, humour and togetherness. While simultaneously re-introducing the Peanuts gang to a whole new generation.
