'Snoopy Presents: One-of-a-Kind Marcie' shines the spotlight on adorable little Marcie

Category: Television and Streaming

Marcie is often overlooked when it comes to the Peanuts gang. She’s the loyal friend of Peppermint Patty and always has some words of advice for all the gang. In this new special, Snoopy Presents: One-of-a-Kind Marcie, Marcie finds herself in an uncomfortable situation. Will her own words of advice help her make it through?

To begin with, Peppermint Patty is relying on Marcie’s keen abilities to help win the school golf championship. Marcie doesn’t play golf but has an uncanny sense of how to swing and where to aim. She’s like a golf savant.

The school cafeteria finally offers pizza to the kids. But when Marcie and others get through the line, there is no pizza left. After a few days of not getting pizza, Marcie comes up with the solution to help the whole school. 

And the school hallways are always a mess with kids cramming and scurrying to get to their classes. It’s like a mob scene, especially for the littlest kids. Leave it to Marcie to come up with the solution.

But this self-proclaimed introvert finds herself in a sticky situation. She is a shy girl who has a great mind but not a lot of self-confidence. Her shyness precludes her from doing things, yet she is happy being alone and reading a book. She loves being on the sideline and has no desire to be the center of attention. Unfortunately, due to her kindness and problem-solving abilities, that’s exactly where she winds up.

This is a sweet film focusing on little Marcie, one of the Peanuts gang that rarely gets a starring role. It also introduces a new group of younger kids. These little kids look up to Marcie and give her some much needed encouragement. 

Besides the new little kids, the usual group of Peanuts characters are included: Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Patty, Peppermint Patty, Violet, Shermy, PigPen, Franklin, Snoopy, Frieda, and the rest. It’s a veritable who’s who of Peanuts kids. But at the center of this sweet story is little Marcie, the girl with great ideas, is caring, has a kind heart, and is always willing to help others. She’s adorable and finally has a story dedicated to her. Way to go, Marcie.

Snoopy Presents: One-of-a-Kind Marcie premieres Friday, August 18, 2023 on Apple TV+.
