Do kids really know Peanuts these days? Do they even read the funny pages in the newspaper? Do they know what newspapers are?! Is there anything left in this world?!?! Peanuts, of course, is the legendary comic strip about Charlie Brown and his pals, who I assumed was known these days mostly for holiday specials, and a Snoopy float at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
But it turns out Snoopy continues to keep Peanuts alive in his very own animated show on Apple TV+. The Snoopy Show debuted last February and is coming back this summer with seven new episodes featuring Charlie Brown’s beloved dog.
According to Apple TV+:
“The Snoopy Show” is an animated series for kids of all ages 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 a Flying Ace who battles the Red Baron. All of his bold, beloved personas are on full display in this brand-new animated comedy.
Snoopy will be joined by the rest of the Peanuts gang, including Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Franklin, Schroeder, Peppermint Patty, and, of course, his flying sidekick Woodstock. In the series, the gang embarks on many a summer adventure.
The new episodes hit Apple TV+ on Friday, July 9th. Finally, Snoopy can be enjoyed in the Charlie Brown off-season – ya know, those months between the Great Pumpkin and the Christmas Special.
