DVD review: Snoopy's Adventures

My kids have a number of favorite TV shows that they constantly ask to watch, but every so often I like to make them take a break from those shows so that I can introduce them to a favorite from my childhood.  One of those favorites that I introduced last year was Peanuts, and now we're all very excited whenever a new Peanuts gang DVD arrives at our home. The newest addition to our DVD collection is another great one called Snoopy's Adventures. Here's a bit about it, from a press release that I received:

WARNER HOME VIDEO
INTRODUCES A NEW THEMED DVD COLLECTION
FEATURING CLASSIC PEANUTS TV PROGRAMS
WITH THE RELEASE OF
HAPPINESS IS…PEANUTS™: SNOOPY’S ADVENTURES
AVAILABLE JUNE 14, 2011

Snoopy’s Getting Married, Charlie Brown which is new to DVD

BURBANK, CA (March 28, 2011) – Warner Home Video (WHV) is set to release more endearing escapades of the beloved Beagle, Snoopy with Happiness is…Peanuts™: Snoopy’s Adventures, available in stores June 14, 2011. This release kicks off a new DVD collection from WHV that features themed compilations of favorite Peanuts television programs. Happiness is…Peanuts™: Snoopy’s Adventures pairs TV special Snoopy’s Getting Married, Charlie Brown with an episode from The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show on one disc. The DVD will retail for $14.97 SRP.

Is Snoopy really planning on tying the knot? In the Emmy® Award nominated Snoopy’s Getting Married, Charlie Brown, everyone in the Peanuts gang pitches in, in an effort to make preparations for Snoopy’s big wedding day.

While acting as Peppermint Patty’s watchdog one night, Snoopy meets the girl of his dreams, Genevieve, a beautiful Poodle. Genevieve and Snoopy begin courting and soon after, he proposes. Snoopy asks his brother Spike to be his “best Beagle,” prompting Spike to embark on a long and arduous journey from Needles, California to participate in the event. Charlie Brown takes Snoopy to a tuxedo shop where he is fitted for proper wedding attire, which includes a cane and swanky top hat.  The excitement builds as the big day draws near but Snoopy gets increasingly nervous about leaving his bachelorhood behind.  Will wedding bells ring for Snoopy?

Happiness is…Peanuts™: Snoopy’s Adventures also includes an episode from The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show, the Daytime Emmy® Award nominated program featuring animated skits based on Peanuts comic strips created by Charles M. Schulz.
I'm not sure there is such thing as a non-entertaining show when Snoopy is involved, and this one was greatly enjoyed by everyone in our family.  This DVD is available now! Visit this link for more information.

Disclosure: I received a copy of this DVD to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.
