Charlie Brown’s hilarious and heartbreaking attempts to meet his beloved Little Red-Haired Girl and other endearing adventures are featured on Happiness is…Peanuts: Friends Forever, the latest Peanuts DVD release from Warner Home Video. Friends Forever is the newest installment of the Happiness is…Peanuts™ collection, a series of favorite Peanuts television programs compiled together on DVD. Happiness is…Peanuts™: Friends Forever, pairs TV special You’re in Love, Charlie Brown, with an episode from The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show on one disc.

 Charlie Brown has his heart set on meeting the Little Red-Haired Girl on You’re in Love, Charlie Brown, the 1968 Emmy® nominated television special. School is about to let out for summer but all Charlie Brown can think of is how to meet the Little Red-Haired Girl. All his attempts end in embarrassments. He writes her a love note but winds up accidentally reading it out loud to his class. When she tries to approach him during the lunch break, he panics and pulls his lunch bag over his head. He gets up really early one morning in hopes of catching her at her bus stop but winds up falling asleep and misses the bus. Will it be a summer of heartbreak for Charlie Brown or will he manage to connect with the Little Red-Haired Girl before school lets out?

Happiness is…Peanuts™: Friends Forever, also includes an episode from The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show, featuring skits based on Peanuts strips created by Charles M. Schulz.

  • Kite Eating Tree – Charlie Brown visits Lucy’s psychiatry booth for advice on fighting the kite-eating tree.
  • Sally – Pretending to be a WWI Flying Ace, Snoopy steals Sally’s report for school.
  • Camp – Charlie Brown is sent home from camp for being a “troublemaker.” Peppermint Patty tells Linus that she cried when she saw him kiss the Little-Red Haired girl.
  • Lucy Loves Schroeder – Lucy puts Schroeder’s piano in the washer and dryer after she breaks up with him.
  • Scared Snoopy – Snoopy sees Lucy at her psychiatry booth because he’s been hearing noises at night but later refuses to pay his bill.

“With Valentine’s Day approaching, Happiness is…Peanuts™: Friends Forever is the perfect title to share with both kids and adults, there’s something in it for everyone,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WHV Executive Marketing Director of Family & Animation Franchise. She added, “Although most everyone can relate to Charlie Brown and his unrequited love for the Little Red-Haired Girl, Happiness is…Peanuts™: Friends Forever reminds us that love comes in many forms. From the fondness and affection we have for our friends to the bond we share with family, it’s something to be celebrated and cherished.” 

Our Take: Charlie Brown is a classic! We love watching the holiday specials around here. I watched this one with my four-year-old My only concern is some of the languages in the shows. I am far more lenient with what I let him watch than I did my other children when they were this age. We watch “Witwicky” as he calls it, also known as Transformers almost every day. That is his favorite “go to” movie. So it is not like I am all that strick. But with this one, I kept hearing “I’m so stupid” from CB and “You’ve been dumb before” while the girls are singing and teasing Charlie Brown, and Charlie Brown says stupid a lot. What brought it to my attention was my little one, “We don’t say stupid do we”, “No your right we don’t call someone stupid” I would say to him. I feel that this is something to watch out for considering at this age they repeat everything!

    I’ve always loved Snoopy. I just think he’s so cute. And I love the silly little noises he makes when he’s laughing or crying, etc. I even have a cute little Snoopy hairdryer that sits in a base that’s his body. (Nikki Marie on rafflecopter form)
