Happiness is... Peanuts: Go Snoopy Go DVD and Happiness Is... Peanuts: 3-Pack Fun DVD set now available

Warner Home Video's latest Peanuts DVD release, titled Happiness is... Peanuts: Go Snoopy Go, is available today, October 9, 2012.  The DVD (like its predecessors) features 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 to get the win? It's Spring Training was previously released on DVD by Paramount, but that DVD has been out of print for several 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 has a suggested retail price of $14.97.

Also out today, Warner has collected three of their previous Peanuts DVD releases together into a "gift pack." Titled Happiness Is... Peanuts: 3-Pack Fun, this set contains the Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown DVD; the Happiness is.. Peanuts: Team Snoopy DVD (featuring The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show Ep. 15: Snoopy's Brother Spike and Lucy Must Be Traded, Charlie Brown); and Happiness is Peanuts... Snoopy's Adventures DVD (featuring The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show Ep. 14: Snoopy and the Giant and Snoopy's Getting Married, Charlie Brown).

There is absolutely nothing new in the Happiness Is... Peanuts: 3-Pack Fun set except for a new slip cover.  All the DVDs and shows in it have been released previously on separate DVDs.  The set has a retail price of $19.98, which makes it cheaper than buying all three DVDs separately. So, if you don't have any of these DVDs and were thinking of picking them up, you can save a few bucks with this set. (Note that some sites, such as Amazon.com, are listing this set's title as just Happiness is Peanuts.)
