In a new teaser, Apple previews the upcoming Apple TV adaptation of the lauded Charles Schultz comic Peanuts, The Snoopy Show. Starring the silent but craft little dog of Charlie Brown, this looks like a return to form for the Peanuts crew, who have been off of television for quite a while now. If nothing else, this trailer gets the vibe right.
It’s not entirely clear if a show focused on Snoopy is precisely the right way to bring Peanuts back to TV — after all, the point of the strip is generally more to do with the melancholy comedy of life as told through the mishaps facing a small, questionably balding child — but it’s easy to see why it’s an appealing one. Snoopy is fun, Woodstock is fun, and we can maybe have some of that melancholy around the edges.
The Snoopy Show hits Apple TV this February.
