Happiness is....Peanuts Snow Days review
Title: Happiness Is...Peanuts Snow Days
Run time: 135 minutes
Own it on DVD: You can purchase via the WB Shop.
We love holiday specials in our house and the kids really have come to love Snoopy and his friends as much as I did growing up. We recently snuggled up to watch Happiness is... Peanuts Snow Days, where we re-visited the Peanuts gang and got to enjoy some Christmas magic, Peanuts-style!
In Happiness Is... Peanuts Snow Days, we are reunited with our beloved (and favorite) beagle, Snoopy, as he acts as Peppermint Patty's skating coach in one of the episodes. The other had Charlie Brown (Chuck to Peppermint Patty) reminiscing about the most interesting Christmas Ever. I enjoyed She's a Good Skate, Charlie Brown more than the other episode, mainly because I've seen a variety of Christmas episodes and liked Charlie Brown's Christmas Tales better (far more interesting Christmas, at least to me!) What I loved most about She's a Good Skate was the story. Rarely do you see Peppermint Patty shine, since she's normally pining after "Chuck" and calling him a sly dog. It had an Icecastles feel to it and the whole gang turned out to see her perform and cheer her on. When her chance to compete was endangered by a malfunction, Woodstock stepped up to the plate to save the day.
In all, Happiness is... Peanuts Snow Days is a nice addition to our DVD collection.
