Production[edit]

The show was formally announced on October 1, 2020, alongside the release of a teaser trailer.[9] A second trailer for the series followed in January 2021, prior to the series' premiere date.[1] In order to create this show, the producers needed to follow several rules:[10]

  • No adults are to be seen or heard.
  • Never show the interior of Snoopy's doghouse.
  • No technology produced beyond the 1970s can be featured.

Rob Boutilier serves as the series' Supervising Director, with Ridd Sorensen, Behzah Mansoori-Dara, Mélanie Daigle, and Steve Evangelatos also directing episodes. In addition to co-writing the second and third episodes, Alex Galatis serves as the Executive Story Editor. Josh Scherba, Anne Loi, Stephanie Betts, Paige Braddock, Craig Schulz, and Mark Evestaff (who also co-wrote the second episode) executive produce.[11]

On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, The Snoopy Show holds an approval rating of 100% based on 6 reviews, with an average score 8.33/10.[12] On Metacritic, the series has a weighted average score of 73 out of 100, based on 5 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[13] The Michigan Daily praised the show, calling it "so darn wholesome".[14] Common Sense Media gave the show a 4/5.[15]
