RM: What does it mean to you that The Snoopy Show, an all-new series based on the beloved Peanuts Gang, is debuting?

Jean Schulz: It’s been a dream of ours to have animation for the new generation. And it’s been our dream for probably close to 20 years, and we haven’t found the right partner. So, to find a partner in Apple TV Plus is
just wonderful for us, and it means that a new generation of little folks can see the animation in a fresh way, fresh episodes, fresh pantomimes, and-and we’ll gravitate toward, I hope, toward the comic strip eventually by their attachment to the characters.

RM: What is it about those characters — Snoopy, Woodstock and the Gang –that makes them so timeless?

JS: I think the characters all represent elements of humanity that we all live with today. Some fear when we go out in the world, some rejection, some
friendships and happiness, and fights with our siblings or our friends, but then we, after a while, we resolve that and get back together. So I think it’s the showing of what we all go through every day.

RM: Do you have any favorite moments from the new series?

JS: No, I just was so happy to see how well it represented what I held dear about the earlier shows, that it was calming, and it delves into the characters and their fears and their activities, but it isn’t loud and noisy. It’s still calming and pleasant.

RM: How do you think Charles would feel about the
new series coming to life?

JS: I think he’d be pleased that we have this collaboration with Apple TV Plus and that allows our family and our creative studio to collaborate with the artists who are doing the storytelling and the drawing. And I think that’s going to be what gives it an authenticity to the comic strip and to the
previous animation that people enjoyed.

The Snoopy Show streams on AppleTv+ February 5
