Happiness is... Peanuts: Go Snoopy Go DVD announced for October 9, 2012

The next DVD from Warner Home Video will be titled Happiness is... Peanuts: Go Snoopy Go. Due out October 9, 2012, the DVD will (like its predecessors) feature two half-hour shows: the 1992 show It's Spring Training, Charlie Brown and "It's that Team Spirit, Charlie Brown," episode #12 of The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show from 1983.

It's Spring Training, Charlie Brown has a story similar to the classic 1966 special Charlie Brown's All-Stars: a local business will sponsor Charlie Brown's team and give them uniforms if the team can win the first game of the season. But will an early round of spring training in the snow and new team member, the tiny Leland, be enough help for them to get the win? It's Spring Training was previously released on DVD by Paramount, but that DVD has been out of print for years.

This will be the first U.S. DVD release of "It's That Team Spirit, Charlie Brown." The episode consists of five skits: "Vulture," "Blanket," "Peppermint Patty," "Rerun," and "Rainy Day."

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

Glad to see another release. I'm curious as to why they would release a dvd featuring a theme around the beginning of baseball season in October. I would have liked (and expected) this one next February or March.

I have the old Paramount DVD which my son watches quite a bit. I'll be picking this up anyway for the Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show. Thanks for the update Scott!

They have been releasing a lot of these lately. Are there going to be anymore decade collections following the 1960s and 1970s sets? ie The 1980s, 1990s Collections? Sure it was hit or miss by then but it would great to have them together.

Unfortunately, Warners hasn't announced any plans to do "1980's" or "1990's" Peanuts DVD collections; it appears that they've decided to go the route of these individual releases instead. Which is too bad, I agree with you - having all the episodes released in a chronological set would be nice.
