From the fun, quirky and diverse characters to the cool of the laid-back West-Coast Jazz soundtracks, I have loved all of the Peanuts specials and movies since I was a kid. Is any cartoon character more loveable and easier to root for than good-old Charlie Brown? Is any cartoon dog more fun than Snoopy? Do not @ me on this.
I know everyone else is excited about Apple’s more expensive shows, such as The Morning Show, See, Amazing Stories and For All Mankind, but I am all about Snoopy in Space. I want to see those other shows, as well, but Peanuts is just good, clean fun that can be watched with anyone in the room. There’s something to be said for that. I’m glad that, among the A-list type shows, Apple has included a couple of kid-friendly offerings in TV+ as it gets off the ground.
Apple recently posted a trailer for Snoopy in Space, which is coming this Fall.
Apple has a deal with DMX Media, which bought rights to the Peanuts brand in 2017, so Snoopy in Space should be the first of many new shows featuring my favorite cartoon dog and his many friends. As long as they keep the familiar quality and fun, I hope Apple keeps them coming.
