Burbank, CA — Let’s play ball with Snoopy and Charlie Brown!  Warner Home Video (WHV) brings an all new animated Peanuts collection to consumers with the release of Happiness is…Peanuts: Go, Snoopy, Go! on October 9, 2012. The newest installment of the Happiness is…Peanuts collection, Happiness is…Peanuts: Go, Snoopy, Go! pairs the TV special It’s Spring Training, Charlie Brown with an episode from The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show on one disc.  This title will retail for $14.97 SRP.

Step up to the plate with the Peanuts gang in It’s Spring Training, Charlie Brown. It’s springtime and Charlie Brown’s baseball team is gearing up for the new season. The players work their hardest to train and get into tip-top shape but in spite of all their efforts, end up with disappointing results. To top it off, Lucy points out that they are the only team without any uniforms. To boost the team’s morale, Charlie Brown manages to secure new uniforms after Mr. Hennessey at the hardware store promises to sponsor the team — with the condition they win the first game of the season. Will Charlie Brown and his teammates emerge victorious and score new uniforms?

The laughs and good times continue on Happiness is…Peanuts: Go, Snoopy, Go! with three delightful segments from The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show. In Blanket, Snoopy attempts to steal Linus’ blanket and Linus in turn, uses Snoopy’s supper dish as blackmail to get his blanket back. In Peppermint Patty, Peppermint Patty has trouble in school with a straight “Z” average, and therefore refuses to go to class. Rainy Day has Charlie Brown giving a “speech” on baseball signals, however, everyone is more interested in watching TV than paying attention to him.

“Pairing a classic Peanuts TV special with an episode from The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show is a great way for consumers to enjoy an assortment of classic Peanuts content for one low price,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation Marketing and Partner Brands. She added, “If you want to share wholesome entertainment with the family, you can’t go wrong with Peanuts. Every story offers entertainment but also imparts life lessons that apply to all of us.”
