DVD review: Happiness is…Peanuts™: Snow Days

Last week was not a great one in our home. Ethan had surgery on Monday, we then spent Monday and Tuesday in the hospital, and the rest of the week here at home while he recovered.  This got old very fast, and by Wednesday afternoon, grouchiness was taking over. Then, in one of those fabulous bits of timing, FedEx knocked on my condo door and handed me a package with a new DVD inside! Hurray! The DVD was perfect for our gloomy day- it was Happiness is…Peanuts™: Snow Days. And I think it's a well known fact that it's impossible to be grouchy with Snoopy around :)  Here's a bit about this DVD, which is being released today, October 18, 2011. 

Happiness is…Peanuts™: Snow Days – The newest Peanuts collection of stories celebrates everyone’s favorite thing about a long chilly winter: snow days! This DVD is comprised of one newly remastered classic Peanuts television special, She’s a Good Skate, Charlie Brown and one episode of The Charlie Brown & Snoopy Show. In She’s a Good Skate, Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty trains for a figure skating competition with Snoopy as her tough coach, and crafty costume designer. The smiles continue with three short tales from The Charlie Brown & Snoopy Show including: The Play; Sweet Babboo! and Snoopy’s Story. It may get cold outside but the Peanuts kids are sure to bring lots of warmth and happiness into everyone’s homes this winter! Happiness is…Peanuts™: Snow Days will be available in stores October 18, 2011 and will retail for $14.97 SRP.
 As usual, Snoopy and his friends made us laugh and then laugh some more.  By the end of the shows, the grouchiness had departed and we were all in a much better mood.  I know we're going to be glad to have these shows to get us through the upcoming grey days of a Seattle winter! This DVD would be a great addition to any Peanuts fan's collection.
