Cliched, Funny, Quirky

See it if your youngsters are familiar with the Snoopy TV shows or the comics version. The lad who played Snoopy was fantastic

Don't see it if show has finished the run

Delightful, Refreshing, Quirky, Cute, Entertaining

See it if you like Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang, or you're in the mood for something light and family friendly.

Don't see it if you don't like shows without a narrative. This is like a collection of strips sewn together; there isn't a traditional story structure.

Entertaining, Funny, Fun for kids

See it if you have a child and are looking for an enjoyable family friendly show. It is better for kids but not so childish that adults will be bored

Don't see it if you don't have a child to entertain.
