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.

A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Educational Value

This series is intended to entertain rather than educate.

Positive Messages

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).

Sexy Stuff

Reccurring instances of Sally chasing after her forever-crush, Linus. No kissing or physical affection.

Language

No actual curse words, but brief verbal expressions of negative feelings.

Consumerism

The Snoopy Show is based on Charles Schultz's original comic strip, which has evolved into a huge franchise.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What 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.

What's the story?

Snoopy gets to be in the spotlight of this 2021 Peanuts reboot. THE SNOOPY SHOW's episodes feature three short stories full of Snoopy's big dreaming and joyful personality. Of course, there's no Snoopy without Woodstock or Charlie Brown, and they're the sidekicks to his daydreams and adventures. The rest of the Peanuts gang (Lucy, Linus, Sally, etc.) play minor roles in the stories, too. Some shorts have plots around things like the day Charlie adopted baby Snoopy or the story of how Snoopy and Woodstock became best friends. Some shorts are more focused on Snoopy's never-ending dancing and the wonderful piano-driven Peanuts jazz music. All of the stories show the Peanuts kids navigating the world of elementary school friendship.

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.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about Snoopy's relationship to Charlie Brown. How does Charlie feel about Snoopy? Does Snoopy return an equal amount of love?

  • Is Snoopy like other dogs you know? How is he the same? How is he different?

  • What do you think about Lucy? Is she a good friend? Who in this show would you like to be friends with?
