Each character brings their unique personalities to the show: Snoopy is inventive, imaginative, and determined, Charlie Brown is cheerful, lacking his characteristic melancholy. Marcie is smart and science-obsessed, Franklin is a font of space knowledge, and Peppermint Patty is her tomboy, sporty self, and all the other characters are similarly true to the original cartoon. The Peanuts gang has smart and adventurous girls and kind and thoughtful boys. Franklin, who is smart and self-assured, is the only black character.

What's the story?

In SNOOPY IN SPACE, the iconic dog and his pet bird, Woodstock, tag along with the Peanuts gang on a field trip to NASA. While there, Snoopy and Woodstock are tapped to be a part of an elite mission to the International Space Mission (ISS). While they bring the space adventures, Charlie Brown and the gang stay on earth, supporting their astronaut friends while sharing space travel facts and NASA history from mission control. Each short episode is a "mission" that covers astronaut training, food production in space, the ISS, a trip to the moon, and so forth. The first season ends with Snoopy setting his sights on Mars, so futre episodes may take Snoopy deeper into space.

Is it any good?

This charming and educational reboot of the Peanuts cartoon pays homage to the original with all the familiar characters and art style, but with sharper, more modern details. The backdrops in particular give scenes a deeper, more 3D feel. The twelve 8-minute episodes are packed with Snoopy and Woodstock's laugh-worthy antics and efficiently dole out bite-sized space facts designed to inspire would-be kid astronauts.

The educational aspect doesn't feel heavy-handed and is often repackaged in ways that support kid viewers in retaining the information. Absent here are the sometimes gloomy, adult-like conversations and situations the characters faced that gave the original cartoon and comic strip its bent of childhood wisdom, which might be missed by adult fans of the classic, but this won't be an issue for kids. What could be an issue is that with such short episodes, a new generation of Snoopy fans will want more space adventure fun.
