The New Year has come and gone and Valentine’s Day is on it’s way.  Make way for another fun DVD – Happiness Is….Peanuts: Friends Forever, available in stores and online on December 27th from Warner Home Video.  On this DVD, stories of love and friendship are captured into a compilation featuring classic Peanuts TV programs.  The release includes the 1968 Emmy Nominated Television Special, You’re in Love, Charlie Brown, as well as an episode from The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show on one disc.  The title retails for $14.97.

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 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. 

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.” 


I enjoy watching the Peanuts DVDs and this is one of my favorites for two reasons – (1) I love Valentine’s Day and (2) it shows how much the Little Red-Haired Girl rocks!  Check out Happiness Is…..Peanuts: Friends Forever when you get a chance – just in time for Valentine’s Day!
