There has been a Happy Meal campaign in various countries (but not yet in the US; I have no idea if it’s coming) branded as Snoopy: Space Explorer in some places, Discover Space with Snoopy in others (as if space had not been discovered long ago.) This is mostly a set of Astronaut Snoopy toys, branded with the NASA logo in many countries (but apparently not in Russia.) The reason this is of interest to this blog is that in the UK (and possibly other countries, for all I know, but certainly not in all), the set includes books. Snoopy Blasts Off! sends him to the International Space Station (which shows up in pop-up form), and Snoopy to the Moon! sends him, well, I guess to the moon. I don’t actually have these books (yet), I’m reliant on videos like this one for information
And hey, as long as I’m putting in videos (which folks getting the blog via email might need to click through to the website for), here’s a fun li’l Italian ad for the Happy Meals:
Will these come to America? Again, I don’t know… but I’m tagging this post as “upcoming release” out of fervent hope.
