Snoopy in Space is a Canadian-American animated series in the Peanuts franchise. It is exclusive to Apple TV+ and premiered on November 1, 2019.

Plot

While on a field trip to NASA, Snoopy and Woodstock are selected for an elite mission into space and the rest of the Peanuts help from mission control.

Why It Rocks

  1. Stays faithful to the original Peanuts comic strips and cartoons.
  2. Good animation.
  3. Very good piano jazz music, particularly the theme song, which is reminiscent of the stylings of Vince Guaraldi.
  4. Decent voice acting and good voice direction, unlike in previous cartoons where the voices, while good, could get a bit wooden from time to time.
  5. Teaches kids a lot about NASA and outer space.
  6. Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Sally, Snoopy, Woodstock, Marcie, Peppermint Patty, Franklin, and Rerun are all still very likable characters.
  7. Is much more positive compared to previous Peanuts cartoons, which were rather gloomy.
  8. Unlike other Wildbrain reboots like Teletubbies, Rosie & Jim, Brum, Mega Man: Fully Charged, and Strawberry Shortcake, this one is handled quite well, and, as mentioned in reason 1, stays faithful to the original comic strip series.

Bad Qualities

  1. Schroeder is mysteriously absent in the show. Then again, he wouldn't be very useful on Mission Control as he's mostly preoccupied with playing his piano.
  2. The series was rather short-lived, as it is only 12 episodes. However, it is planned to get a second season.
