Happiness is... Peanuts: Team Snoopy DVD announced for May 1

Warner Home Video has announced their next Peanuts DVD, titled Happiness is... Peanuts: Team Snoopy.  The DVD will be released on May 8, 2012, and will feature two half-hour shows: the 2003 special Lucy Must Be Traded, Charlie Brown and "Snoopy's Brother Spike," episode #15 of The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show from 1985.

(This DVD was originally announced for May 8, but the release date was moved up one week to May 1.)

In Lucy Must Be Traded, Charlie Brown, Charlie Brown trades Lucy to Peppermint Patty's baseball team in hopes of getting a better player and winning some baseball games.  Lucy Must Be Traded was released on DVD by Paramount, but that DVD has been out of print for several years.

"Snoopy's Brother Spike" consists of three different skits:

  • "The Pelicans" - Peppermint Patty makes Charlie Brown dress up in a pelican costume to be her baseball team's mascot.
  • "Great Pumpkin" - Peppermint Patty and Charlie Brown compete in a bowling tournament while Linus and Sally wait for the Great Pumpkin in a nearby pumpkin patch.
  • "Spike" - Lucy attempts to fatten up Snoopy's skinny brother Spike in preparation for a fight with the Cat Next Door.

This will be the first U.S. DVD release of "Snoopy's Brother Spike."

There are no special features on the DVD. Happiness is... Peanuts: Team Snoopy will have a suggested retail price of $14.97.

Nice. I watched the Great Pumpkin short on You Tube a couple years back. I always thought that would have been an appropriate extra on the official Great Pumpkin dvd release. I guess I'm the only one lol?
