Nicknames: “Snoopy and Woodstock on Video”, "Snoopy and Woodstock"

Logo: On a white background, we see a
Peanuts Home Video (1998)red circle, and inside it are Snoopy and Woodstock. Snoopy is holding a yellow flag which reads "PEANUTS" in dark fuchsia, and Woodstock holds up a blue-outlined dark fuchsia sign reading "HOME VIDEO" in yellow.

  • A variant exists on the 1996 tape of Be My Valentine Charlie Brown, where the Woodstock's sign and the text in Snoopy's sign are light blue instead of fuschia, the text in Woodstock's sign is white instead of yellow and the background circle is a darker red.
  • On one Peanuts video promo used from 1998 to 2001, the logo flies in on a sandy yellow/whitish gradient background before bouncing away.

FX/SFX: None, but for the 1998 variant, the logo flying in and bouncing.

Music/Sounds: None for the 1995 variant. On the 1998 variant, we hear the start of the promo's music ("Linus and Lucy") alongside slide whistle noises as the logo appears.

Availability: Rare. The only releases that used this as an actual home video logo were the "Snoopy Double Feature" VHS tapes, where it is seen between the two programs, but both variants were used at the start of promos for Peanuts videos; the variant with the white background can be found on Peanuts releases and some other family-oriented Paramount tapes from 1995 to 1997, while the yellow background variation can be found on Peanuts tapes and many Nickelodeon releases onwards.

Editor's Note: This is a favorite logo amongst Peanuts fans.
