Charles Schulz’s beloved comic strip comes to life in the classic musical, YOU’RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN. The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder who doesn’t give her the time of day, perfectionist Sally is still mocking blanket-toting Linus, Snoopy is in the doghouse, and “blockhead” himself, Charlie Brown, is in rare form. Though considered a "good man" by his friends, Charlie Brown can't seem to win the heart of the Little Red-Haired Girl. Brief vignettes span the months from Valentine’s Day to Beethoven Day, and from wild optimism to utter despair. The friends battle with kites, school, baseball, and misunderstandings before finally coming to realize what makes them truly happy.

SYLVIA brings us the story of Greg and Kate who have moved to Manhattan after twenty-two years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg brings home a dog he found in the park—or that has found him—bearing only the name "Sylvia" on her name tag. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. She offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection. And Sylvia thinks Kate just doesn't understand the relationship between man and dog. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives.
