BURBANK, CA (February 16, 2012) — It’s a grand slam hit with Charlie Brown and Snoopy in Warner Home Video’s DVD release of Happiness is…Peanutsâ„¢: Team Snoopy, the all new animated, sports-themed Peanuts collection available May 8, 2012. Happiness is…Peanutsâ„¢: Team Snoopy is the newest installment of the Happiness is…Peanutsâ„¢ collection. This title pairs the TV special Lucy Must Be Traded, Charlie Brown with an episode from The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show on one disc. This title will retail for $14.97 SRP.

Batter up with Peanuts and celebrate their greatest sports moments in Happiness is…Peanutsâ„¢: Team Snoopy. For Charlie Brown, a new baseball season equals new hopes of winning. Unfortunately, one player just isn’t measuring up, which makes the team decide that Lucy Must Be Traded, Charlie Brown. This delightful special finds Charlie Brown trading his teammate, Lucy for Marcie, one of Peppermint Patty’s players in hopes this will finally end his losing streak. Will Marcie lead Charlie Brown’s team to victory? More importantly, will Peppermint Patty have the patience to tolerate Lucy and her antics?

Viewers will then suit up for a triple-header of laughs with The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show. The three featured segments available on DVD for the first time include, The Pelicans, which finds Charlie Brown getting stuck with mascot duties while Peppermint Patty is on the road to victory with her baseball team. In Great Pumpkin, the Peanuts gang visits the bowling alley in hopes of teaching Charlie Brown a new sport with hilarious results. In Spike, it’s game on as the neighborhood cat meets his match when Snoopy’s older brother Spike trots into town. It’s time to catch the winning spirit and share these tales with your teammates!

“With summer on the way Happiness is…Peanutsâ„¢: Team Snoopy is the perfect way to celebrate having fun outdoors with sports and activities,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WHV Executive Marketing Director of Family & Animation Franchise. She added, “We are delighted to add another title to the growing Happiness is…Peanutsâ„¢ collection, which offers consumers great value with one Peanuts television special along with an episode from the Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show. It’s a must own title for Peanuts fans and anyone who loves classic animation.”

    When the same crew that created the excellent “Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown” makes another Peanuts DVD, I’ll buy it. But this? Feh. I can’t stand Melendez’s stuff.

    It’s a shame that Team Snoopy had to trade their copy editor, too. I know where they were going, but they could have got there more easily.

    Scarbim, if it weren’t for Meledez, we wouldn’t have animated Peanuts stuff like “A Charlie Brown Christmas” in the first place. Heck, we wouldn’t have something like “Warm Blanket” without the influence.

    No wonder, I don’t read the comment section much anymore.
