“Snoopy Presents: The Unrepeatable Marcie” – Reflection on the introverted heroine of Peanuts
Apple TV+ offers us a surprise preview of some scenes of the new Peanuts special entitled “Snoopy presents: The Once-in-a-lifetime Marcie”, which will be broadcast worldwide on Friday, August 18th. This special episode takes us into the heart of Marcie, an introverted child who finds serenity in her solitude but who, despite this, does not hesitate to help her friends. She thus reminds us that, often, those who have the most profound impact are not necessarily the ones in the spotlight.
As Peppermint Patty (Peppermint Patty) trains for the school golf championship, she finds a valuable ally in Marcie. The latter, with her calm and thoughtful style, advises her as a caddy, providing valuable suggestions. Likewise, thanks to her ingenious solutions to her classmates' problems - from queues in the corridors to pizza shortages at lunch - Marcie is surprisingly elected president of the class, a role she had never wanted. Suddenly finding herself in full view of everyone, Marcie feels a sense of unease and decides to withdraw as much as possible from public life.
At the start of the golf championship, with Marcie still absent, Peppermint Patty is forced to start the competition with Charlie Brown as caddy in her place. However, thanks to some sage advice and a deep moment of introspection, Marcie realizes she can still make a difference to her friends and her school. To do that, she'll have to set aside the expectations of others and stick with herself, while staying true to her own unique way of doing things.
Made for Apple TV+ by Peanuts and WildBrain, the episode was directed by Emmy Award-winning Raymond S. Persi, known for such work as “The Simpsons” and “Wreck-It Ralph”. The screenplay bears the signature of Betsy Walters, who has previously written episodes for “The Snoopy Show” and “Snoopy in Space”. The executive producers of the special are Craig Schulz, Bryan Schulz, Cornelius Uliano, Paige Braddock, Josh Scherba, Stephanie Betts and Logan McPherson. Interestingly, to ensure an authentic portrayal of the introverted protagonist, the authors collaborated with cognitive scientist Scott Barry Kaufman, an expert consultant on introverts.
“Snoopy presents: The unrepeatable Marcie” is a dedication to the silent strength that each of us has within, an invitation to recognize and value the diversity and uniqueness of each individual. Don't miss the appointment with this new Peanuts adventure!
