(January 6, 2009 – Burbank, CA) – Consumers will meet Snoopy’s siblings and find out where he originally came from on the next Peanuts Deluxe Edition of “Snoopy’s Reunion,” the heartwarming animated prime time television special that tells the story of Snoopy’s family reunion. Available on DVD for the first time on April 7, 2009 from Warner Home Video (WHV), “Snoopy’s Reunion” will be presented in a fully re-mastered edition, offering consumers dazzling picture and sound quality.

Order due date has been set for March 3, 2009. Snoopy is homesick for his puppyhood days at the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm, so he and Charlie Brown organize a reunion with his brothers and sisters which include Spike, Andy, Olaf, Marbles, Belle, Molly and Rover. However, when Snoopy and Charlie Brown arrive at the puppy farm, Charlie Brown is aghast to find that urban sprawl has replaced it with a parking garage. Although the physical world around them has changed the bond Snoopy and his siblings share has not. They chose to celebrate their reunion by playing musical instruments they’ve each brought, thoroughly satisfied that they are together on the sidewalk in front of what used to be their home. DVD Special Features Include: • “It’s Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown” -- A new-to-DVD bonus episode which was originally broadcast in 1984 as a television special and earned an Emmy Award® nomination for Outstanding Animated Program. “It’s Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown” features several clever parodies inspired by popular early 80’s dance trends ranging from disco to break dancing as well as a series of top 40 hit songs from the era. • “Together Again: A Peanuts Voice-Cast Reunion” -- Features a reunion of original Peanuts cast members and includes the voices of such beloved characters as Charlie Brown, Lucy, Sally, Peppermint Patty and others. We think Peanuts fans will treasure “Snoopy’s Reunion” because it’s one of the rarer Peanuts television specials not often seen on TV and because it imparts a valuable message, the importance of strong family bonds,” said Amit Desai, WHV Vice President, Family, Animation and Sports Marketing. He added, “What’s unique about this special is that it allows viewers to learn more about Snoopy’s origins, his musically gifted siblings and his life before finding a home with Charlie Brown. This is a must-have title for any Peanuts fan.” The Credits About United Media Peanuts is licensed and syndicated by United Media.
