The Snoopy Show, coming to Apple TV+ in February, puts the focus on Charlie Brown’s irrepressible beagle. A new trailer for the series dropped Monday, and it demonstrates the show is going to come crammed with lighthearted fun.

Watch the just-released trailer now.

The video starts with a spoiler, quickly showing the first meeting between Snoopy and Charlie Brown. From there, it gives brief shots of the eponymous pooch sledding, mountain climbing, ballet dancing, cooking, scuba diving and (of course) tangling with the Red Baron as a World War I flying ace.

The Peanuts specials, and the long-running comic strip by the late Charles M. Schulz, always included Snoopy’s active imagination. But The Snoopy Show puts it front and center (along with the pup’s best friend, Woodstock). The other Peanuts characters take secondary roles.

The Snoopy Show premieres February 5, 2021, exclusively on Apple TV+, the iPhone-maker’s streaming video service. It joins other kid-oriented shows on the $4.99-per-month service, like Ghostwriter and Helpsters. Or there’s the animated feature film Wolfwalkers.

Apple TV+ is now the Peanuts’ home

In autumn 2020, Apple purchased the rights to stream the classic Christmas, Halloween and Thanksgiving Peanuts specials. And it’s making more in collaboration with WildBrain’s animation studio.

Even before then, the educational show Snoopy in Space debuted in 2019 along with Peanuts in Space: Secrets of Apollo 10. Both were nominated for Emmy Awards for Outstanding Short Format Children’s Program. Peanuts in Space took home the Emmy.
