This is an Apple TV+ Original Series based on the Peanuts. It mostly follows Snoopy and Woodstock as they begin to work their way into NASA in order to become astronauts. This is the basis of the educational aspect in this series, to learn about NASA and the journey of heading into space. That’s a venture that both showcases the history of getting there, and where we might head in the future.

It’s very good from an educational point of view, and certainly has the traditional charm of the Peanuts series. The rest of the gang is all here, and they’re contributing slightly to the side on this one. It’s great that they were able to have such a fine balance of focusing on Snoopy and Woodstock, while also bringing the rest of the squad in. The various episodes are quite short, which means fast pacing and a very cohesively put together story.

Each episode had its own thing going on, it’s own special topic which means you get to learn a lot. It really does cover both the history, and the future of space exploration very well. I was definitely impressed, and I think the target audience will particularly find joy within this one. From a fun, funny and educational perspective for the younger ones.

The animation work here was splendid, the design was true to the origins of the characters while also being just a tad sharper. It looked fantastic throughout, with a simple yet detailed art style. It was fantastic, and exactly what I think of when I think of the Peanuts. The animation work was seriously impressive, and it was just lovely to take in.

The expressions really were on point, and it was such a great take on this long running group of funny kids. This is of course headed by the charming and hilarious Snoopy. It’s fun whether they’re on the ground, or headed up into space. It’s got the heart you would expect, and the comedy that I think hits just the right mark.

The Conclusion

Snoopy in Space Season 1 is just a lovely representation of the Peanuts while also being a great educational series for the younger ones. It brings some laughs, moments of standout learning and so many unique points of interest. It really does dive into the core parts of space travel. In a realistic sense too.

The journey an astronaut might take, the places we’ve been and where we’re hopefully headed down the road. It doesn’t hold back on keeping things grounded, and even grants the fun idea of where space travel will likely take us if we stay the course. I think it’s somewhat inspiring in that regard, and hopefully gets some individuals interested in space. This is perfect for all audiences, whether you’re younger or someone that’s been a long term fan of the Peanuts.
