In Canada, it aired on YTV. It re-aired with the Charlie Brown specials on the UK channel, Boomerang in 2002, but was named and advertised as "Snoopy" for short.

Format

The series' format was based on two earlier CBS prime-time specials, A Charlie Brown Celebration (1982) and It's an Adventure, Charlie Brown (1983). Episodes typically featured gags and story lines that were derived from the newspaper strip.

Segments from the show were released in random compilations during the mid-'80s. Paramount later released the original episodes (albeit with newly-added title cards) on nine volume VHS tapes in 1996.
