Have you heard? There is a new Peanuts movie coming out soon, and the Momz is going to let me tell you about it! Be sure to stay until the end, where we will tell you about a fun giveaway!
The Peanuts Movie is being released on this November 6th, when Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the loveable Peanuts gang make their big screen debut in 3D animation! The world’s most loved underdog, Charlie Brown, embarks upon an epic quest while his best pal, MY HERO, Snoopy, takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis, the Red Baron.
The screenplay is of course based on the much loved comic strip created by Charles M. Schulz for his hometown newspaper, and is brought to life by the creators of the Ice Age films. It goes without saying that this is a family friendly movie!
Did you know that Snoopy was actually inspired by lifelong dog lover Charles Schulz’s own childhood dog, Spike? (Remember, Snoopy also has a brother named Spike?) The real Spike wasn’t actually a beagle though, he was a pointer/hound cross. Mr. Schulz just thought the word “beagle” was funny! Snoopy is the only fictional dog to ever receive an honorary AKC registration as Beagle-1. He appeared on the 1979 cover of the organization’s AKC Gazette, holding his registration papers!
A few facts about the movie:
- Directed by Steve Martino.
- Produced by Craig Schulz, Bryan Schulz, Cornelius Uliano, Paul Feig, and Michael Travers
- Cast includes: Noah Schnapp, Mariel Sheets, Alexander Garfin, and Hadley Miller

Since dogs can’t go to the movies, I guess Luke, Sheba, and I are going to have to wait for this one to come out on DVD! Be sure to watch the trailer for the movie below. After watching that, we sure can’t wait!
There are two things I love best about Snoopy: he had a HUGE imagination, and he had a bond with his best friend Charlie Brown that all dogs and dog lovers can relate to. In that spirit, we want to share with you our giveaway of 5 trucker hats as seen below:
We are going to keep this giveaway simple. Please just leave a comment below stating whether you plan to see the movie or not, AND that you would like to win a hat. I, Cricket, will personally randomly select 5 winners after numbering them in the order they come in. We’ll keep this open until the end of the movie’s opening day, Friday November 6th (11:59 pm EST). Giveaway open to USA residents age 18 and over, void where prohibited by law. Winners will be contacted via e-mail and we ask you respond within 48 hours. Thank you and good luck!

I do not usually go see animated movies, but Peanuts is a must-see. I’ve been Peanuts obsessed since I was a kid. Peanuts birthday cake, sheets, dress, socks, etc. I’d be happy to win a hat.
It sounds like a hat would fit in well with your collection! Good luck!

My humans plan to see the movie on Friday, I wish they could sneak me in with them. But I’m going to have to wait until it comes out on DVD. I would LOVE to win a hat to show my Peanuts Pride!!! 🙂

Dolly the Doxie says
Snoopy was always mom’s favorite but somehow she never wanted to have a beagle! Love the hats you and Luke look adorable! We are so disappointed that we didn’t get to take part, even after we told the PR rep we would. Oh well can’t wait for the movie! Love Dolly
Oh no, that’s too bad, Dolly! I’m surprised they wouldn’t have taken all the promotion they could get.
It should be a fun movie though! Did you want to enter to win a hat?
Sandy Weinstein says
more than likely i will not see the movie, however, my dogs would wear the hat. or i may wear it if i dress them up as snoppy characters for halloween and make it a theme with my girls and me.
It would definitely make a great addition to Halloween costumes! Good luck.
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
Best friends can be silly together and you guys look great together. Have a great weekend.

We will see it eventually when it gets to cable. lol I kind of miss the cartoon animation which if part of what made the tv shows so wonderful.
Dogs N Pawz says
We want to see the movie! Mommy says she needs a break from all of this wedding planning and going to the movie would be great fun!
Wedding planning can be exhausting, and your Mommy definitely deserves a fun break!
Yes we plan to see the film and it would be fun to wear the hat to the theater 🙂
Callie, Shadow, and Ducky's Mom says
Being a Snoopy and the Gang fan since childhood, I definitely want to see the movie in the theater. But I’ll probably have to go by myself since hubby’s not an animated-character movie fan. And not really a Peanuts Gang fan either – he doesn’t know what he’s been missing all these years, does he?! Wish I could bring Shadow with me for a Mom and Me outing!!
No, your hubby doesn’t know what he’s missing! My hubby won’t go to the movies at all. I don’t go very often, but when I do it is with “the girls”. I’ll have to see if they want to see this one!
Callie, Shadow, and Ducky's Mom says
If only we lived closer- we could go together!! (((SIGH)))
I plan to see the movie, but will probably wait for it to come out on DVD. But I’d like to win a hat for my nephew who LOVES Peanuts!
Bernie W says
I would like to see this in the theater and would like to win a hat.

M. K. Clinton says
We cannot wait to see the new Peanuts movie! It should be awesome in 3D ♥
Karen Cantlin says
I will definitely see it when it comes out on dvd so I can watch it with my 3 beagles and I want to win a hat.
Pick me, Cricket!
You are entered and good luck! But which beagle gets to wear the hat if you win? 🙂
There should be a theatre where we can go with our pups 🙂
Ha, fits perfectly with our post today about the “Snoopy” exercise!
I know, what great timing, right?
We wish they had a dog viewing, but I guess I will have to wait until it comes out on video. Nice work Cricket!
