A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
This series is intended to entertain rather than educate.
Celebrates friendship, love, and optimism.
Positive Role Models
Snoopy has a positive outlook but sometimes seems indifferent to Charlie Brown. As always, Charlie Brown is kind but suffers from poor self-esteem and jokes being made at his expense. Mean Lucy gets some zingers in, but she (and the rest of the kids) are not the real focus of the show. Human cast isn't diverse.
Violence & Scariness
Some mild Peanuts-style meanness, including insults or slights at Charlie Brown's expense. Also some mild slapstick violence and scariness -- like characters who have cartoon-style injuries but aren't in pain, and some characters showing fear or sadness. Moments are quickly resolved and characters don't seem like they're in actual danger (many of these scenes are imaginary daydreams).

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Snoopy Show is a delightful animated take on the Peanuts gang, with Snoopy as the star of the show. The series is faithful to the Peanuts-verse and does include Lucy's typical mean quips and other jokes made at Charlie Brown's expense. There's also some mild cartoon scariness, like when characters show fear or sadness (but are never in actual danger). Sally continues to express over-the-top affection for her forever-crush Linus, but there's no actual physical affection. The series mostly focuses on Snoopy and Woodstock's joyful silliness, but sensitive or very young kids may want to sit this one out.
Is It Any Good?
The Snoopy Show delightfully mixes the nostalgia of vintage Peanuts movies with Snoopy's fresh perspective and point-of-view. The stories definitely still feel relevant for kids today, but parents should know that the messy aspects of childhood friendships have not been toned down (and the show is still not diverse). There's lots of fun and imagination, but like typical Peanuts-fare, there's also a fair bit of Lucy's meanness, Charlie Brown's wet blanket effect, and Snoopy's impatience and short temper. All shorts explore themes of friendship, though the nuance and not-explicit lessons will be missed by young kids. The stories are very fun, the music is wonderful, and the animation style nods to the old-school versions but is updated with some lovely painted backgrounds. The Snoopy Show is great for families to watch together, but parents may want to shield young kids from some of the mean-ish and scary-ish plot points.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
