The Red Baron had better watch out because Snoopy and the Peanuts gang are back with a brand-new series, titled The Snoopy Show. Apple TV+ unveiled a teaser trailer for its upcoming animated series today in celebration of the milestone 70th anniversary of the first Peanuts strip ever published! The Snoopy Show will make its global debut on February 5, 2021, exclusively on Apple TV+.
Per today’s official press release:
The Snoopy Show is a new animated series for kids and families that stars the internationally beloved beagle and his feathered best friend Woodstock as they tackle all-new adventures. Snoopy may seem like just a happy-dancin’, bone-lovin’, doghouse-sittin’ pup, but he’s much more than that. He’s Joe Cool: hippest kid in school. He’s surfer king and famed arm-wrestler, Masked Marvel. He’s World War I Flying Ace who battles the Red Baron. All of his bold, beloved personas are on full display in this brand-new animated comedy.
Offering multi-generational viewing for children 4-11 and their caregivers, each episode of “The Snoopy Show” will consist of three, seven-minute cartoons based on the iconic comic series. Featuring the unique animation style that has entertained millions around the globe for seven decades, the nostalgic new series also showcases everyone’s most cherished characters from Peanuts including Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Franklin, Schroeder, Peppermint Patty, and more!
My love for Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang goes way back, y’all. I even had the iconic Snoopy Sno Cone Machine. We used to fire that puppy up on hot summer days and crank out snow cones like they were going out of style. I even had a Peanuts-themed birthday party once. What’s truly wonderful about the Peanuts brand is that the property has remained in great hands for decades. Even 2015’s THE PEANUTS MOVIE from director Steve Martino was a real treat for fans and newcomers alike. Oh sure, Lucy is still a monster and Charlie Brown will always be a bit of a blockhead, but that never keeps the characters created by Charles M. Schultz from providing wholesome entertainment for the whole family. Here’s hoping that The Snoopy Show continues the time-honored tradition of making the Peanuts worth enjoying for a whole new generation and then some.
The Snoopy Show will debut on Apple TV+ beginning on February 5, 2021.
